Marken, Volendam and the Windmills
During this tour you will visit the picturesque fishing villages of Volendam and Marken. You will drive through typical Dutch polders and along narrow dykes. Our luxury coach will take you to the Zaanse Schans and its many unique windmills. The old crafts of the Netherlands are not lacking in this tour. You will visit a wooden clog maker and you can see how Dutch cheese is made the traditional way.
This excursion takes us to the countryside north of Amsterdam, to the edge of the river Zaan, where we visit windmill village ‘de Zaanse Schans’, with its characteristic green wooden houses. On the turn of the 18th century this district was an industrial area with approximately 700 windmills in use. In this day and age there are only five left. Through typical Dutch scenery we continue to Volendam for a city walk and the traditional fisherman’s village of Marken, situated on the shores of the former Zuiderzee. This tour includes a visit to a working windmill, boatride between Marken and Volendam, a demonstration in a cheese factory and visit to a traditional clogmaker.
