Enjoy the chocolate-box beauty of the Dutch countryside as you ride through typical scenes of pastures dotted with charming farmhouses and grazing animals. Then step back in time as you explore the cobbled streets of Zaanse Schans, a windmill village where an 18th-century Zaan community has been authentically recreated. Once the site of over 600 windmills, this open-air museum boasts only a handful of the surviving structures, but it’s an amazing experience. You’ll also get a glimpse of Dutch life gone by, as you watch craftsmen practicing the trades of yesteryear, like traditional clog making, and have a chance to relax in an outdoor café.
