This brand new boat connection from Amsterdam Central to Zaanse Schans and back takes you through the Hembrug, a site of industrial heritage and sprawling woodland. You won't believe you're still so close to Amsterdam!
Hembrug was a secret military location with a weapons and ammunitions factory, and from 1890 onwards, it was home to a defense line comprising 46 forts, batteries, locks, and dikes. This interesting location managed to sneak its way into the UNESCO World Heritage list thanks to its historical value.
You'll end your journey in the quaint village of Zaanse Schans, lined with windmills by the riverbank. Keep your camera ready to snap views of this idyllic Dutch dwelling.
