his tour offers you pure Dutch culture. Discover the ultimate windmill town of the Netherlands, visit the country’s most famous fishing village, learn about cheese making and watch how a shoemaker crafts traditional wooden clogs.

Volendam is the most famous fishing village in the Netherlands, and not without reason. It used to be the harbour of the nearby town of Edam, before the inhabitants found another shortcut to the bay, after which Volendam became the home to local fisherman and farmers. The vibrant atmosphere, folkloric costumes worn by Volendam’s inhabitants, and the traditional music are part of the local culture of this picturesque town.

Where the river Zaan meets the green meadows full of grazing cows, you will find one of the most famous landmarks of the Netherlands: the windmills of Zaanse Schans. This line-up of the oldest windmills in Holland is like a skyline on the horizon of the flat country, with the windmills rotating around their axis in order to catch the wind.
