Zaanse Schans

Amsterdam, Netherlands


In the summer months, tourists pour into this nearby village to step into another century and learn about Dutch traditions such as clog and cheese making and running a windmill.  See folks in traditional clothing, as well as the country's first Albert Heijn (now the country's biggest grocery chain).

Just a short train ride from Amsterdam, with trains departing multiple times each hour, it's a great way to spend a day outside the busy city center.
