Zaanse Schans & Edam Excursion

  • Approximate Time: 4 hours
  • Location: Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The Dutch say, “if you only have one day to see Holland, then go to Zaanse Schans,” so we take you there on our “quintessential Holland” excursion. You’ll take a short scenic ride through the countryside to this “living museum” to admire the houses, hump-backed bridges, charming gardens, tradesmen’s workshops, and authentic, working windmills dating to the 17th century. You’ll get a lesson in cheese making, step inside a windmill, and see how a clog maker crafts those unique shoes. Next you’ll go on a guided tour of picturesque Edam, famous for its eponymous cheese. Before heading back to Amsterdam, you’ll try a typical Dutch treat, coffee and apple cake, at a local café.


Please note: This tour will not be offered on Majestic Rivers of Europe for the July 5, July 19, August 2, August 16, and August 30 departures. This tour will not be offered on Grand European River Cruise for the August 15 departure. The optional tour to Edam, Volendam, and Marken will be offered on these departures instead.
