Experience the atmosphere of this old Dutch market. You will see, amongst other things, the cheese carriers in their traditional costumes hard at work. We then proceed to Schermerhorn with its three old mills, where you can see the inside of a windmill (not included the price). On the return trip we see Edam where the cheese comes from and we visit a cheese farm.
