We took a local bus to go to Zaanse Schans. We went to this picturesque Dutch village for windmills, cheese and clogs. There is no entrance fee. This is a good destination for half day or full day trip. The village is large. There are various shops for shopping, eating, and visiting. We enjoyed our exploration here.

Wonderful place with a really special view and lots of history. Highly recommended. We enjoyed even when it was rainning cats and dogs, it was still worth it. We bough the zaanse schans card but also visited places around.

We have been to Amsterdam so many times for many years, and every time visiting this beautiful place! It is so impressed to see so many Wind Mills and how well they are maintained. Also, the old fashion Dutch Houses are the stars at the place! Always the place is packed with 100s of tourists, mainly Chineese Tourists arriving in large busses. However, this time due to Covid-19 there were not a single Tourist Bus with Chineese Tourists so the place was quite empty, of course there were other tourists but not much comparing to every other time we have been there. One of our another favourtie activity doing there is visiting HENRI WILLIG Cheese Shop in Zaanse Scans where we enjoyed tasing so many varieties of Cheese, and buying so many every time we visited.

I have a plan to visit this windmil village by bus but at eleventh hour we decided to go on bicycles. it was about one hour drive of 18km one side but worth for the views of Zaanse Schans. Five giants windmills seems running on a row when we see them from Julianburg Zaandijk Bridge. Cycling along the windmills is quite mesmerizing. We did it in November so, it was a bit chilly weather then. You can boat into the Zaan too.
