Zaanse Schans Windmill Village Boat Tour

At midday, we'll meet at jetty of the former historic NDSM shipyard in Amsterdam. The boat will be waiting here to take us from the Dutch capital to the picturesque windmill village of Zaanse Schans.

We'll sail through Amsterdam's port area, the second largest in the Netherlands, before entering the Zaan River and sailing up past the town of Zaandam. During the cruise, we'll see the old warehouses and factories that show how important this waterway has been historically.

As we approach our destination, Zaanse Schans, you'll be able to catch a glimpse of the typical Dutch windmills for which the small village is famous. We'll dock in Zaanse Schans and you'll then have two hours of free time to explore the area.

Picturesque wooden houses, barns, traditional clog workshops and, of course, hundreds of emblematic windmills make Zaanse Schans an unforgettable sight. Exploring the village feels like visiting an open-air museum dedicated to the Netherlands' pre-industrial past.

At 4 pm, we'll meet back at the dock in Zaanse Schans to set off on our return trip to Amsterdam. The excursion will end at 6 pm back at the original departure pier.
