City walk, windmills, wooden shoes and taste some cheese!


I will pick you up from your hotel and we start with a walk in the old city centre. Among the highlights are the National monument and the Royal Palace on Dam square and the oldest streets of the city. If you want, we can do a 1hr canal cruise as well (optional/not included)

We'll have lunch in a local restaurant in De Rijp. With its beautifully restored 17th century houses, all bear witness to the style and glory of the past steeped in a long tradition of whaling fleets and herring fishing.

The Beemster polder is an absolute miracle. The draining of this lake in 1612 is a shining example of how the Dutch "created" large areas of their country.

In Schermerhorn we will visit a windmill from 1632! This windmill is closed from November untill end of March. Then we visit the windmills at Zaanse Schans.

At the end of the excursion I will drive you back to your hotel or I can drop you in the city centre of Amsterdam if you prefer.

The tour is also possible for your group; I can arrange a bus or van.
