Amsterdam: Zaanse Schans, Edam, Volendam, and Canal Cruise

2. Amsterdam: Zaanse Schans, Edam, Volendam, and Canal Cruise

Zaanse Schans will be your first destination, where you will explore this most picturesque traditional 17th-century village. Discover houses and a collection of beautifully preserved windmills from the nation’s industrial heritage. In the Zaanse Schans village, you can stroll past the charming greenhouses and visit a factory where the clogs popular in this part of the country are made. There’s also nothing more Dutch than cheese, and you will be able to try some at the Catharina Hoeve Farm. The most obvious association with the name "Edam" is its cheese. For centuries the well-known and round Edam cheeses have been sent from this town to all corners of the world. You will be invited to take a walk along the old streets and quiet canals, where one can easily imagine how it looked centuries ago. Discover the well-preserved gables, squares, bridges, and tea-houses on the "Schepenmakersdijk", as well as the leaning Carillon tower (1561), the historic museum with its floating cellar, the dam, the Townhall, and more. Your trip will continue to the village of Volendam, where you can admire brightly painted wooden houses and see locals wearing their colorful regional attire. Your guide will take you on a short walk through Volendam Harbour, which has been one of the most popular tourist attractions in the village since 1875. This is a great place to pick up souvenirs and gifts for those at home, and to have photos taken in traditional Dutch costumes. For the final part of your tour, you will be invited to enjoy the city of Amsterdam throughout a canal cruise. There is no better way to experience the essence of the Dutch capital than on an Amsterdam canal cruise, as you wind past grand merchant houses, Gothic churches, museums, and medieval buildings.

What people are saying about Zaandam

It was nice wheather! You can feel free. Museum fantastic.. You can see a lot and experience a different feeling. The molens they are so beautiful! I will go again with my family.

Interesting about the windmills and their history. Windmill museum informative, but a little heavy handed. Big museum a disappointment -- giant comercial advertisement

It was a nice day with all those old crafts. Also in the museum. Especially the girls from Verkade. It was fun to see how those cookies were made.

Piece of Dutch Glory. It is a pity that there is no subsidy to support this.
