Windmills and Edam - AM08

Driving out of Amsterdam you will pass scenic pastureland dotted with farmhouses and grazing animals. Zaanse Schans, a quaint Dutch windmill village has been fully recreated to resemble an 18th century Zaan community. As you stroll through the quaint streets watching the craftsmen practicing the trades of yesteryear, you'll get a glimpse of what Dutch life once was. Though there were once over 600 windmills in the Zaanstreek, only a handful have been preserved. You'll have an opportunity to witness the Old Dutch craft of clog making, or simply relax in an outdoor cafe. Visit the typical Dutch village of Edam. Strolling the town's cobblestone streets, you will notice a unique bell tower.
