Zaanse Schans Daytrip, Amsterdam: 32 reviews and 54 photos
Just a 15 minute train ride from Amsterdam Centraal station is the Zaanse Schans.
Here you will see all the sterotypical Dutch things in one place. There are windmills galore, a traditional klompen (clog) maker and a cheese farm.
There are also several re-created Zaanse homes which are museums; clocks,pewter and costumes and there is even the very first Albert Heijn supermarket here.
There are restaurants and a tourist information centre as well as several shops.
Entranse to the Zaanse Schans is free as is entrance to most of the museums, though there is a small charge for some.
And all this is set in beautiful surroundings close to the wide river Zannse.
Directions: Take a train from Amsterdam and leave the train at Koog-Zaandijk station which is about 15 minutes from Amsterdam.
Follow the signs for ZS ( an 8 minute walk) and when you have crossed the wide river bridge the entrance to the park is on your left.
