Next, hop back in the bus for the 45-minute ride to the windmill village of Zaanse Schans. Enjoy a walking tour of this typical Dutch settlement filled with picturesque houses from the 18th and 19th centuries. Visit the clog museum and see how to make this wooden footwear, then stop by a cheese farm and get a demonstration of how to make Gouda cheese. There may even be the opportunity for a taste test. Finally, finish your day with the choice of two attractions.
