Zaanse Schans

ZAANSE SCHANS (19.3 KM, 1 hour and 30 minutes cycling)

The Zaanse Schans is a residential and working area that revives the 18th and 19th centuries. Stroll past the bakery museum and enjoy the smell of fresh bread, or take a look inside the warehouse where clogs are made. The cheese factory, tin foundry and the various mills should not be missed either.


The Zaanse Schans is a unique part of the Netherlands, full of wooden houses, windmills, barns and workshops. Take a boat trip, browse the shops or enjoy the pancake restaurant. A day out at the Zaanse Schans in North Holland is fun and educational.
