Take a private 3-hour tour from Amsterdam to the enchanting hamlet of Zaandam's Zaanse Schans neighborhood. The area, with its windmills and houses, gives an impression of how a typical Zaanse village must have looked in the 17th and 18th centuries.
What to Expect
Get out of the city and visit the picturesque country landscapes of the area outside Amsterdam on a private 3-hour excursion to Zaandam. This trip takes you to the edge of the river Zaan, where you visit the windmill village "de Zaanse Schans," with its characteristic green wooden houses.
At the turn of the 18th Century, this district was an industrial area with approximately 700 windmills in use. In this day and age, only a handful remain. Walk through the streets and let yourself be enchanted by the feelings of day gone by. Apart from the cluster of windmills and houses there are also several museums, restaurants, and a visitor's center. You will have the option of stopping for traditional Dutch food or the possibility of taking a boat trip on the river (at an additional cost).
Regardless of what you do, you will easily understand how the Zaanse Schans has become one of the top tourist destinations in the Netherlands.
