Zaanse Schans is a magical place where you can catch a glimpse of the traditional side of the Netherlands. Wander through this unique village and go back in time with interactive activities and workshops. Step inside a clog factory and see a local shoemaker in action. Visit a classic windmill and paint mill to understand how they used to work back in the day. You'll even have a chance to go inside one of them!

Let the kids take a selfie/photo in traditional local costume at the fisherman’s cottage and see them transform into little Dutchies!

And you can't leave without trying the famous Dutch cheese and a classic treat, a 'stroopwaffle'. Get a tasting of the best products at a local factory and talk to the friendly locals all dressed up in traditional attires.

For the kids, there will be several activities and games where they can let their creativity run wild. The best: The kids can make their own traditional chocolate milk straight from the factory with fresh cocoa powder! Yummy!
