Step back in time at the Zaanse Schans
Koog aan de Zaan, April 2017...
Many clients are looking for ‘off the beaten path’ experiences, avoiding the crowd and visits that make them feel special. But they still want to see the international famed icons of our country.
The perfect match I find is the 18th century Zaanse Schans windmill village, just 20 minutes’ drive from Amsterdam with a majestic view of windmills lined up along the river Zaan, the historic houses, the atmosphere and there is so much to do and see. Of course, there are many other tourists but if you are invited and have tea or pea soup with Ingrid in her home or meet the miller in his atelier or grind your own chocolate, it all comes alive and you will walk away with a wealth of interesting stories and encounters with the locals.
