Zaanse Schans!

Zaanse Schans is one of the highlights of the Netherlands, just outside Amsterdam. Be part of a vibrant and stunning living and working community that dates back to the 18th and 19th centuries. It’s packed with wooden windmills, barns, houses and museums and built in the typically Dutch wooden architectural style, relocated here piece by piece since 1961.

Zaanse Schans will easily fill half a day – there is so much to see, taste, smell and experience! Take a walk through the stunning buildings and the unique peat meadow landscape. Come and watch traditional crafts such as clog- and cheese-making or visit the windmills and traditional buildings. Take a boat trip, dine in one of the restaurants or explore the shops and boutiques. Admission to Zaanse Schans is free of charge: we look forward to seeing you soon!

Opening hours
Zaanse Schans offers a variety of things to see and do: windmills, shops, cafés and restaurants and traditional craft demonstrations. In the high season, almost everything is open between 10.00 and 17.00. Some opening times are different. Check the website in advance for the opening times of the sights you do not want to miss.
