Your experience


Nothing beats the traditional Dutch views that you can enjoy from the water on this windmill ride through Zaanse Schans. Get to know the mills from your audio and live guides, learn what they produce, from tobacco to paint to mustard, then get out of the boat and visit them!

Did you know that the Zaanse Schans area was once home to over 600 windmills? Now there is much less, but your windmill ride through Zaanse Schans makes a visit to what remains slightly cool an experience.

Join the audio guide in your language choice to learn all about the rich history of the most famous agricultural structures in the Netherlands

The five you will see from the boat are the young sheep, the cat, the seeker, the houseman and the crowned Poelenburg. Learn how each has been used for a different purpose, from making paint by converting raw materials into pigments, to making tobacco, oil and mustard, to roasting peanuts.

Get out of the boat after your tour and visit them. You can even try some of these roasted peanuts!
