Zaanse Schans – Old Windmills in Netherlands

Zaanse Schans is one of the best-loved tourist destinations in Netherlands. Nearly a million people visit the place each year. The village presents a picture of what life was in Netherlands in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It has old houses, traditional windmills and workshops. There were 600 windmills in the Zaan region in the old days. Now there are ten well-preserved historic windmills in the typical Dutch wooden architectural style. They date back to the 18th and 19th centuries.
