This was cool, I really enjoyed the demonstration on how they make the shoes as well as the cheeses. I love how all the houses were green and cute. Very nice little town. Thanks to the residents for making it available to us.

In Zaanse Schans you have a chance to see how clogs are made. This shop was founded more than 40 years ago. In the shop, staff will demonstrate how they still make clogs in the same way as they were made a hundred years ago....More
