Zaanse Schans – Windmills!

Just a 20 minute train ride from Amsterdam is the Netherlands we all thought of before moving here. Zaanse Schans is filled with quaint houses surrounded by canals, windmills, wooden shoes, boats and bikes.  Most parts are open 1000-1700 everyday during the high season (April-November), while some shops are closed on weekdays during the low season. You can go inside the windmills for around €3. Why not start your day trip to Amsterdam here? Just switch trains at Amsterdam Centraal towards Koog-Zaandijk.
