Venture out into the countryside north of Amsterdam, to the edge of River Zaan where you will visit the beautiful windmill village of Zaanse Schans, with its 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. You will also visit to a working windmill, boatride between Marken and Volendam, a demonstration in a cheese factory and visit to a traditional clogmaker.
