Hi there,

www.zaanseschans.nl is the most obvious choice if you're based in Amsterdam.

All the best,

For windmills you can try Kinderdijk or Zaanse Schans!

https://www.kinderdijk.com/

http://www.dezaanseschans.nl/en/

I've been to both and I prefer Zaanse Schans but everyone has a different favorite.

Enjoy! MMK

I agree, Zaanse Schans was a fun, interesting day trip. You get to learn about windmills and wooden shoes.

Like I told you earlier there are also various windmills in the city, for example beer cafe & brewer Brouwerij 't IJ is situated underneath one.

I also told you about Zaanse Schans before.
