    Cute colourful village taken out of a fairytale and placed in the Dutch countryside, at only half an hour from the city of Amsterdam. A real step back in time. So peaceful and sweet. 🫠🥰

    This is a working windmill that grinds pigments and dye to make paint. Its fascinating to be inside the windmill and there is an opportunity to climb the windmill and get some great views, I chose not to climb for health reasons but I stood by a small window and got a perfect view!

    The place has a museum, is a factory and has also a shop. There are so many different types of cheese. Some very tasty, some very weird, but all very interesting

    Cool exhibits/demonstration + short movie explaining history of the windmills in the area as well as the mechanics of the wood mill. Overall, Zaanse Schans is quite touristy but this windmill was worth the visit regardless.

    My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this museum and shoe making factory with a live demonstration - which of course was much faster than what was done in the old days. But it was interesting in how shoes were made back then.
    At the gift shop, you can buy some wooden shoes also.

    Special historical atmosphere, unique vibes. Hundred years old signs written on the windows. Don't miss it if you are in the neighbourhood.

    This windmill is a working windmill situated near many others. This particular one was an oil mill before being converted to be a dye mill. However where it's situated at the moment was not it's original site. You can pay a small fee of € 5,00 and go inside this interesting mill, or just wander around outside if you prefer as there is a path running along the river and passes by the windmills in the area.

    An interesting museum. The audio tour is very informative and they have done their best to add some interactive elements. Please note, the museum is not in Zaandam (use the Zaandijk train station instead).
