Things to do Excursion to the Mills of Zaanse Schans at sunset

Come discover the windmills of Zaanse Schans under the charming light of the sunset and discover how the ancient citizens knew how to benefit from wind power to produce mustard, oils, perfumes, and much more! We will also learn everything about the traditional shoe-manufacturing, and visit a cheese factory to discover how the Netherlands cheeses are produced and distributed to the whole country.

With the company of our Spanish speaking guide, we will explore the authentic windmills to know how they work, and how the citizens convert the nature to spices and create their traditional clogs. Enjoy the chance to explore a clogs factory and learn the most curious stories.

The visit to these impressive windmills is a must during your stay in Netherlands, as they are considered such a symbol in the country. They are located in little floating houses where all kinds of aliments are produced. Lose yourself in a world of colorful houses popped up from a fairy tale.

Unfortunately, most of the people think that the floating houses and crowded canals are the only touristic attractions in Amsterdam. Let’s travel back in time to the South Holland of XVI and XVII centuries when the citizens raised these mills as main source to boost the economy of the city.

Visit a traditional Cheese Factory

Our journey will also take us to a cheese factory. As you all know, Holland is really popular all over the world thanks to the production and distribution of the most exquisite cheeses. During this visit, we will have the chance to taste them and contemplate the production process.

In addition, you can also have a pleasant wander around the windmills at your own pace, and take millions of photos to make of this and unforgettable experience.

Enjoy the colors, the history and the most stunning views of the city with our Windmills of Zaanse Schans Day Trip from Amsterdam when the sun goes down and fall in love with the characteristic magic of Netherlands.
