Travel back in time and explore the Dutch way of life while traversing the historic village of Zaanse Schans’ handicraft workshops and windmills before being conveniently transferred to Schiphol Airport to catch your flight. A 45-minute coach ride through scenic countryside brings you to Zaanse Schans, a neighborhood of Zaandam where village life circa the 1700s is well-preserved and brought to life. Join a guided walking tour past wooden houses, barns, and warehouses where local artisans demonstrate time-honored techniques used to bake fresh bread, produce cheese, cast pewter, and make signature Dutch clogs. Along the east bank of the Zaan River, you’ll discover a collection of old Holland windmills: the De Huisman spice warehouse, centuries-old De Gekroonde Poelenburg and De Zoeker, where oil, paint and cocoa are produced. Enjoy free time to roam around the trundling windmills and shop for souvenirs at your leisure — all with the ease and flexibility of a coach transport to the Schiphol Airport, where you can board your flight.
