Windmill at Zaanse Schans Windmills village

Windmills Village Zaanse Schans.

We will meet at your hotel in Amsterdam and start driving
north of Amsterdam to the town of Zaandam. Next to the river Zaan, we will visit a nice authentic village called 'Zaanse Schans.'
Here, we can find a Clog farm where you can see the production of old-fashioned wooden clogs,  discover old-fashioned shops, visit the Cheese farm, and, of course, 7 different windmills. You can visit most of these windmills by paying an admission fee. There is a Spice mill, a Paint mill, an Oil mill, and a Sawmill, ‘Het Jonge Schaap.’ At this windmill, there is a demonstration of how wood for the ‘Dutch Maritime Fleet’ was produced. Also, you can watch a movie about the construction of this windmill.
