Additional Information


Zaanse Schans is northwest of Amsterdam. Its ancient buildings vividly depict Dutch life in the 17th and 18th centuries. People continue to live here, many working in ancient shipyards and wooden shoe workshops. Of course, there are many windmills. Picturesque scenery! Visit the timber buildings of the Zaan River, the green wooden houses of the 17th century, the windmills powered by the wind to extract oil and make pigments. Go inside to see what the interior of a windmill is like.
