BerkerZaanse Schans offers the most beautiful windmill landscape in the proximities of Amsterdam. The tulips, the wooden shoes, the windmills, and the water sight are definitely worth visiting.

Historical Architecture
本杰明De Kat, De Kat, means cat. Of course, this is the only windmill in the world that makes paints. The name of the windmill in the Zaanse Windmill Village is very unique. There are five windmill mills lined up by the lake in the village: Pulenburg wearing a crown, cat, seeker, lamb, and bull. ☆History: The workshop was originally built in 1646. It was originally an oil factory. It was rebuilt after being destroyed by a fire in 1872; it was used until 1904 and was partially demolished; due to the needs of urban development, In 1960, the factory was relocated from its original site and installed on the top of an old warehouse called De Kat; it later became a workshop for making paint using traditional methods. ☆Geography: The mill is located in the windmill village of Zaanse, 15 kilometers north of Amsterdam. ☆ Transportation: Take the Sanjiu No. 1 bus from Amsterdam to Zaans Museum-Zaanse Schans stop and walk into the windmill village. ☆Photography: It was already afternoon when I arrived at the Windmill Village... First, watch the west side view of the Windmill Village from the observation deck. The sun is shining from the west, and part of the image is overexposed when shooting. For example, in the last three pictures, the tenth picture is the original picture, and the original picture is reduced 1:1. The sunlight and the first windmill "Pollenberg with a crown" are cut out to form the eleventh picture; then it is 9:16 Cut the "little sheep" to the twelfth image. ☆Impression: In front of the observation deck and the windmill, the nickname cat, always reminds me of the "magic cat" in the musical "Cat". "Cat" is adapted from T·S·Elliott's "The Cat in the World": noticed a cat in your meditation. The cause, I tell you, is always similar: his mind is immersed in Concentrated thoughts. Its meaning, its meaning, its name and its meaning: his incomprehensible singular name. I remember that I did this poem translation several years ago, and I commented on Mao Mao. At that time, I seemed to say: the similarities are all soft and graceful. The cat and the woman, the humanities and the scenery, in the sadness and desolation, showed the newness. The oppressive longings of life and the hidden fears. But after all, desire is the mainstream; in particular, "charm" and "dao" show a humorous humor toward oneself and others. Then, through the closed and depressing night, enjoy the sun, windmill and wind peacefully and up and down on the high observatory of life! Despite the afterglow of the setting sun, the stream is flowing like blood. The cat lay quietly, Shi Gemumo.
