Half Day Tour To Zaanse Schans From Amsterdam

Historic collection of Dutch windmills

The Dutch have always been a resourceful lot and from the late 1500s onwards they set about harnessing the power of the wind that sweeps across this low-lying country by building windmills.

Visit Zaanse Schans, a village just 20 minutes from Amsterdam and features six historic windmills clustered together. These are all working windmills and have various uses. De Huisman is a mustard mill and you can explore it for free. The other windmills generally cost just €4 to enter and the highlight of them is probably Het Jonge Schaap (The Young Sheep), which is one of the sawmills that helped the Dutch gain mastery of the high seas in the 1600s.

Zaansc Schans is not all about windmills but it is also an open-air museum itself. There are about 35 historic houses, a couple of small museums and old timey craft shops.

The tour lasts three hours and there will be a guide on board the bus to give you the lay of the land and a rundown on local history. Thereafter, you’ll be able to explore Zaanse Schans at your own speed.
