Description

Begin your tour at our central meeting point. A comfortable, air-conditioned single deck bus will take you to the destination in just 20/30 minutes. The windmill village Zaanse Schans is an open-air museum that houses a collection of working windmills, wooden houses, barns & shops dating back to the 18th & 19th century. All these buildings were brought here from 1961 onwards bringing back to life this most prosperous period of the Zaan region. In its golden age the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area on a scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills. Windmills are wooden factories powered by wind. In these small factories many tasks were being executed with the aid of wind energy: wood sawn by machines, grinding spices, oil for food & paint, flower, cocoa powder & many other things. The prosperity in the 18th & 19th century can be seen in the Zaanse Schans windmill village in several ways. Alongside windmills, barns & other buildings, you will see beautiful houses that were originally built as home to rich windmill owners & merchants. These houses have attractive facades & have been painted in traditional colors such as green, beige & light blue. At arrival in the village, your guide will take you on an orientation tour of the village. You will visit the clog museum (wooden shoemaker shop) & in the cheese farm you will get to taste Dutch cheese. Then it is time to further explore the village on your own. Before you set off to discover the Zaanse Schans on your own, your guide will give you further information on the Zaanse Schans & its unique character, inform you about local history & culture & give you insider’s tips about what to do & where to go. During this 1-hour experience you’ll learn the history of how Holland was created. The Ultimate Flight Experience gives you a 5D experience of the must-see locations in Holland. Fly over the sights you visited earlier today; Zaanse Schans & the famous canals of Amsterdam & see many other highlights of the Netherlands such as; the windmills of Kinderdijk, the flower fields, The Delta Works, the port of Rotterdam & countless other Dutch landmarks from an entirely different perspective. During The Ultimate Flight Experience you will be hanging inside a sphere-shaped screen with your hands & feet dangling free. Moving with the images, you’ll imagine yourself floating above Holland for a period of 9 minutes. Special effects like wind, mist & scent complete this unique experience
