There's no better place to go Dutch than at the pretty heritage village of Zaanse Schans. A visit here transports you back to traditional life. While it's free to enter the site, this card gets you all the extras to supercharge your enjoyment - including access to windmills, car park discounts, and entrance to the Zaans Museum.

Zaanse Schans is the perfect Dutch outing from Amsterdam, bringing the 18th and 19th centuries back into the present-day Netherlands. Explore the wooden houses, windmills, barns, and workshops, and get even more value for money with this ticket.

You get a parking discount, plus free access to the Zaans Museum. You'll also get to see the Verkade Chocolate and Biscuit factory, a real-life Willy Wonka experience!

Get free access to a mill of your choice, and 50% off entrance to the rest. Choices include the De Kat paint mill, the Het Jonge Schaap sawmill, and the oil mills De Zoeker and De Bonte Hen.

That's not all! You'll also get free entrance to Wevershuis, where two families lived with their five looms, and Kuiperij, where you'll see how barrels were made.

Finally, those souvenir shop discounts mean you can definitely grab one more wheel of cheese to take home!
