Full description
Depart Amsterdam from the A’DAM Lookout just across the water from Central Station in Amsterdam and travel in air-conditioned comfort to the open-air museum of Zaanse Schans. Admire the collection of historical windmills, wooden houses and barns dating back to the 18th and 19th century.

Learn more about the golden age of the Zaan region, when some 600 windmills helped to power the wooden factories by wind. Explore how spices were ground and cocoa powder was made, and see the beautiful houses built for the wealthy windmill owners and merchants. 

Visit the clog museum to learn more about the wooden footwear, and sample some Dutch cheese at a dairy farm.
