Experience the flavours and crafts that made the Zaan area famous
The Zaanse Schans is a unique area in the north of Zaandam. An exciting and lively region, dominated by the watery landscape and industrial heritage. Submerge in its large open air museum feeling through a cycling tour or canoe trip, learn all about the Zaanse Schans during a canal cruise or visit the clog factory, the cheese makers or one of the many famous mills. De Kat, for instance, is worth the visit and is the only paint mill in the world.
