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.
