Zaanse Schans is a living, breathing museum where locals bring 18th and 19th-century Holland to life. This ticket lets you enjoy a return bus journey from Amsterdam Central and equips you with a pass to enter Zaanse Schans. Oh, and did we mention that bus travel within the village is included?

Zaanse Schans is free to visit, but with this card, you'll get all kinds of perks to make your experience even more fun.

The Netherlands of the 18th and 19th century comes to life in full color here. Discover the wooden houses, windmills, barns, and workshops. See the first ever Albert Heijn – the iconic supermarket chain which is woven into the cultural consciousness of Dutch society.

The Zaanse Schans Card lets you explore the Zaans Museum and the Verkade Chocolate and Cookie Factory – bringing all your Willy Wonka dreams to life, sans chocolate river. You can also pay a visit to the Weaver's House, where 2 families lived with their 5 looms, and the Kuiperij, where you'll see how barrels were made.

Don't forget to pick up some cheese from the souvenir shops at a discounted rate!

Inizialmente non trovavamo la fermata del bus, serve solo scrivere che si trova alle spalle della stazione 😊... comunque tutto perfetto
