Don’t want to go so far? We also stop at Hembrugterrein, the center of Zaandam, Verkade or de Zaanse Schans. Discovering the region of Old Holland is best on the waters of the Zaan. On the water you will have first place seats to the rich heritage sites on the banks. You will see traditional windmills, monumental warehouses and factories with names as Batavia, Saigon and de Liefde (translated as the Love). At each stop there is a new story to discover.
