Zaanse Schans, the first Windmill Village in the Netherlands, is the best way to visit because it is less than half an hour away from Amsterdam by train. Walking is the best way to see the windmill village. It retains the appearance of traditional Dutch villages. There are green wooden houses with distinctive features everywhere. Six windmills stand majestically near the river. The windmill is open to visitors only for a few euros. Besides, it is recommended to visit the cheese factory and wooden shoe workshop for free, experience the cheese made by traditional Dutch crafts, and buy a wooden shoe with Dutch characteristics as a souvenir.
