The Zaanse Schans
When you ask the average Japanese tourist which places in the Netherlands they want to visit, you will always hear the Zaanse Schans. The Zaanse Schans is a living-working area in which the 18th and 19th centuries revive. Stroll past the bakery museum and enjoy the smell of fresh cakes, or take a look inside the warehouse where clogs are made. You should definitely not miss the cheese factory, the tin foundry and the various mills.
The Zaanse Schans is a unique part of the Netherlands, full of wooden houses, windmills, barns and workshops. Go on a cycling or sailing trip, browse the shops or enjoy a meal in the pancake restaurant. A day out at the Zaanse Schans in North Holland is fun and educational
