The Zaanse Schans
Schansend 7, 1509 AW Zaandam
The Zaanse Schans is one of the highlights of the Netherlands, just outside Amsterdam. Be part of a vibrant and stunning living and working community that dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s packed with wooden windmills, barns, houses and museums and built in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style, relocated here piece by piece since 1961. The Zaanse Schans will easily fill half a day – there is so much to see, taste, smell and experience!
