The Zaanse Schans

The Zaanse Schans is a definite 'must-do' when in the Netherlands. Spend a day looking at the windmills, some of which are hundreds of years old, visiting the museum about the history of the area, having a coffee at one of the terrace or take a boat across the river! From the Bed & Breakfast you can take the ferry to the Zaanse Schans.


15 minutes by train and you are in the centre of Amsterdam, our beautiful capital that became World Heritage for a reason. With numerous museums, characteristic canals, great restaurants and interesting and fun activities after sunset, we would be delighted to help you plan your Amsterdam trip.


This city is famous for its beautiful gardens (hofjes), its impressive cathedral, its medieval roots and great shops. The train will get you there in half an hour!

The sea

Within half an hour the train will take you to Bloemendaal, or in 40 minutes to Zandvoort. Enjoy a walk through the dunes overlooking the sea, relax at one of the beach terraces, or take a dive! 

Food and drinks

Of course you can easily travel to Amsterdam or Haarlem for nice restaurants and bars. However, we can also recommend some of the restaurants and bars in the surrounding neighborhood. With numerous restaurants in the area you don't have to go far for a nice evening.
