A day out with the Zaanse Schans Card including bus ticket
There’s no better place to go Dutch than at the pretty heritage village of Zaanse Schans. A visit here transports you back to traditional life. Take the bus from Amsterdam Central and explore at your leisure. Shop for cheese, and watch craftsmen at work! Zaanse Schans is free to visit, but with this card you will get all kinds of extras to make your experience even more fun.
Zaanse Schans is the perfect Dutch outing from Amsterdam, bringing the 18th and 19th centuries back into the present-day Netherlands. Explore the wooden houses, barns, and workshops, and get even more value for money with this ticket.
Visit the Weaver’s House, where two families lived with their five looms and the Coopery, where you’ll see how barrels were made.
Learn more about the Dutch windmills – world class heritage – in the windmill museum and visit two windmills for free.
That’s not all! You’ll also get free entrance to the Zaans Museum and to the Verkade Chocolate and Biscuit Factory, a real-life Willy Wonka experience. The Zaans Museum offers a free audio guide in 8 languages.
