Enjoy a day trip from Amsterdam to the picturesque Zaanse Schans village including traditional Dutch sights at their best – from cheese tasting to windmills and more.
The windmill village Zaanse Schans is an open-air museum that houses a collection of working windmills, wooden houses, barns, and shops dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. The Zaanse Schans is one of the popular tourist attractions of the Netherlands. It houses seven museums: The Weavers House, the Cooperage, the Jisper House, Zaan Time Museum, Albert Heijn Museum Shop, Bakery Museum.
Amsterdam and its surroundings preserved the centuries-old tradition of cheesemaking. Every day these cows are being milked twice, and every morning, the farmer starts the production of cheese using the milk of the previous evening and from the early morning. There, you will watch and learn how the milk turns into cheese, then taste some already-made cheese.
Amsterdam has more than one hundred kilometers of canals, about 90 islands and 1,500 bridges. The three main canals, Herengracht, Prinsengracht, and Keizersgracht, dug in the 17th century during the Dutch Golden Age, form concentric belts around the city, known as the Grachtengordel. The most exciting feature of the canals are the houseboats. By origin houseboats were a way to deal with the Amsterdam housing shortage, however, nowadays they are still in high demand. Some of the houseboats once were cargo vessels and are now converted into houseboats, other boats were built specifically for this purpose. In Amsterdam, you find these houseboats along the canals and the Amstel river and in the former Amsterdam docklands.
Amsterdam Centraal is the largest railway station in Amsterdam. It was designed by Dutch architect Pierre Cuypers, who is also known for his design of the Rijksmuseum, and first opened in 1889. It features a Gothic/Renaissance Revival style building and a cast iron platform roof spanning approximately 40 meters. It's the main transportation hub of the city, linking the railway, the metro of Amsterdam and the city buses.
Begins your escapade to wind, cheese and clogs with a wonderful scenic countryside drive out of Amsterdam over the typically Dutch landscape of polders. Upon arrival to a local cheese farm, you will get to experience a cheese making demonstration and taste the local delicacy.
