Nice view from a windmill in Zaanse Schans

Windmills

Half an hour drive from Amsterdam city, in the middle of the authentic Dutch countryside, you will find Zaanse Schans. Covered with water, cows grazing the fresh grasses, colorful flowers and green-timbered houses, Zaanse Schans is home to what some call the Eighth Wonder of the World: the historic 18th-century windmills. Along the river Zaan, these robust windmills are lined up facing the direction from where they catch wind. Your personal chauffeur will present you with historical and cultural explanation and you will also visit a working windmill to see how grains are ground into flour.

Cheese

Everybody knows about cheese, but few know how it’s produced. Your private chauffeur will take you to the place where the magic happens, where the Dutch dairy gold is crafted. You will visit a local cheese factory in the picturesque fisherman village of Volendam, where you will be taught about the cheese-making craft and enjoy a delicious cheese tasting. Choose your favorite cheese and have it vacuum packed, so you will be able to bring your friends and family a high-quality cheesy present from Volendam!

Clogs

With windmills and cheese on board, it’s unthinkable to skip the traditional wooden clogs in this tour. Your personal driver will take you to the particular city of Marken, where you will witness how a shoemaker crafts the typical wooden clogs. Where Zaanse Schans is a river village and Volendam is a fishing village, Marken is a real seaside village. Previously an island in the South Sea, Marken now forms a peninsula in the Marke Lake. Indeed, today is the day you set foot on the landscape under the sea: the Dutch Polder. At least you will keep your feet dry with your new polished clogs!
