What to expect

From your meeting point in Amsterdam, a short 20-minute bus ride will take you to the windmill village Zaanse Schans. Here you will experience all that is typical Dutch in just a few hours. You will learn about the process of cheese making, walk on wooden shoes, see the interior of a working windmill and admire the wooden green-painted houses and shops. A professional, experienced and friendly guide will accompany you throughout the village before you get time to further explore the village on your own.

In its golden age, the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area on a scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills: wooden factories powered by wind. The prosperity in the 18th and 19th century can be seen in the Zaanse Schans windmill village in several ways. Alongside windmills, barns and other buildings, you will see beautiful houses that were originally built as home to rich windmill owners and merchants.

Back in Amsterdam, you can visit A'DAM Lookout, an observation deck with an unrivalled panoramic view of Amsterdam. You will see the city's historical center, its pulsating port, the unique Dutch polder landscape and you will spot the famous canals which belong to the UNESCO world heritage list. Complementing the experience is a state of the art interactive exhibition about Amsterdam's history and culture. A'DAM Lookout is located on top of the A'DAM Tower in Amsterdam North.
