All Dutch icons in one tour! Visit the famous Zaanse Schans, get a behind-the-scenes tour with a miller, a clog-making and cheese making demonstration in Volendam.
If you ask anybody about what pops up in their head when they think of The Netherlands, most people’s minds will drift to windmills, tulip fields and the lively center of Amsterdam. Its picturesque canals, historic buildings, exotic nightlife, and open-minded culture stand out. And while Amsterdam is undeniably one of the country’s most fascinating tourist attractions, the scenic Dutch countryside and windmills in the surroundings are often overlooked.
Fortunately, you can easily combine your visit to the country’s bustling capital with a phenomenal tour of the traditional Dutch windmills & countryside. The peaceful villages of Zaanse Schans and Volendam are only a short ride away from the city center. There you’ll be able to enjoy the tranquillity of the surroundings and immerse yourself in the old way of life as you admire the colorful windmills. Take a look at our numerous offers and book one of our day trips to discover the beautiful Dutch countryside and windmills!
