Zaanse Schans Windmill Cruise

Nothing beats the views you’ll get from the water on this Zaanse Schans Windmill Cruise. Learn about the mills from your audio and live guides, find out what the mills originally produced, from tobacco, to paint, to mustard, then hop off and visit the windmills!

Did you know that the area of Zaanse Schans was once home to over 600 windmills? Now there are far fewer, but your Zaanse Schans Windmill Cruise will make visiting the remaining few a breeze, especially considering the high volume of pedestrian traffic on the footpaths.

Plug in to the audio guide to learn all about the rich history of these authentic Dutch windmills.

The five you’ll see from the boat are The Young Sheep, The Cat, The Seeker, The Houseman and The Crowned Poelenburg. Learn how each was used for a different purpose, from producing paint by converting raw materials into pigments; to producing tobacco, oil, and mustard; to roasting peanuts.

Hop off the boat after your tour and visit the windmills yourself. You can even sample mill-roasted peanuts!
