A weekend in Holland

20 Jul 2011  
0.0 of 5 stars based on 0 votes

Visited Amsterdam and the nearby windmill village of Zaanse Schans on the weekend. The windmill village seems to be frozen in time with a row of breathtaking quaint timber houses. A short distance away is a wooden shoe museum and a cheese museum, both of which I strongly recommend.
The highlight of the place is of course the windmills which stand some distance away from one another. There are totally about 5 big windmills. After passing in front of the timber houses and a visit to the wooden shoe museum, I walked in the direction of the windmills which are really a testimony in time as to the industry and professions of the past centuries.
