In the town of Enkhuizen the only outdoor-museum, where water is playing the leading part, is situated. While enjoying a short boat trip, you'll not only be able to see how the Dutchmen were living in this area a century ago, but you can even smell, taste and feel it. The typical ancient -Dutch way of feeling is being brought back to life in this open-air museum.
The "Zaanse Schans" is a unique living- and working neighbourhood, full of turning (rotating) wind-mills, ancient (traditional) crafts, special museums and beautiful houses , which are made of green wood. Experience, taste and smell the atmosphere (ambiance) from the eighteenth and nineteenth century.
