Heading north, you’ll pass by pastureland dotted with farmhouses and grazing animals before reaching the old village of Zaanse Schans. Explore the quaint streets of this working open-air museum – an accurate recreation of an 18th century Zaan community – and watch traditional craftsmanship, such as clog making, in action. Admire the town’s pretty riverside windmills and pause to buy a coffee from a local café.

Stroll through the cobbled lanes of Edam and along the banks of the village’s many canals. At a cheese farm nearby, sample various aromatic varieties of the famous Dutch food.
