Dutch landscape with a lot of old windmills and green wooden houses is definitely one of the most beautiful things to look at. Together with you we would like to travel back in time and enjoy this beautiful day in a countryside!
We will meet at the Amsterdam Centraal Station, from where we will take a train to the fairy-tale windmill village, which only takes 15 minutes to get to.
Over there we will have a huge amount of local sightseeings on the way and we will definitely try to visit all of them, strolling along an incredibly beautiful landscape with a view of polders, old wooden houses, movable bridges, wild swans and white lambs.
Our acquaintance with the village will begin with a visit of several old mills: spicemill, sawmill and dyemill. Let's become friends with one of the millers and learn the secrets of his work?
In Zanse-Schans we would like to tell you about history of the Netherlands in the Golden Age, trading routes of that time and explain why windmills have influenced the country's economy and, most importantly, why are they still important in modern times. Let’s find out more about traditions, local culture and cuisine, national holidays and favorite ways to spend leisure time in the Netherlands!
Let’s visit the wooden shoe workshop, where we can watch clog making demonstration? Or how about an incredible perfume made of spices in one of the local mills? Let’s smell it!
And of course, let’s taste some Dutch cheeses, waffles, chocolate beer and delicious anise liqueur!
During our tour, we will talk not only about the past of the Netherlands, but also the present, telling you about amazing innovations, agricultural technologies, amazing social and volunteer projects.
We will finish our tour at the Amsterdam Central Station.
