What to Expect
Discover one of the oldest and largest industrial zones of Europe on a private half-day bike tour of Zaanse Schans in the Waterland area of Holland outside Amsterdam.
Meet your guide in the city center to board a ferry to the picturesque countryside. Then, cycle the windswept landscape and get close to the historic windmills of the Zaandam and Zaan River.
Soak up the atmosphere of the village. Many of the traditional wooden houses are still lived in, and you can look inside one of the iconic windmills. Discover how these icons of Dutch industry work, and learn the history of the open air museum and mills.
Then, go to Koog aan de Zaan, a charming village of traditional wooden houses far from the noise of the city center.
