Untours Cafe

Train trip to Zaanse Schans, described as a living museum of a Dutch country community with 4 windmills and demonstrations of crafts and farming. We found this rather disappointing. It was more of a tourist trap with the buildings filled with souvenirs etc. It was fun to take the train our of town, walk through the countryside and see the windmills along the waterside but we would not recommend it to others.

I feel the same way re the "touristy" aspect of this area. Next time try the train to the open air museum near Arnhem. Rather like a Williamsburg or Greenfield Village. Yes, also for tourists but very well presented both in architecture and personal explanations offered by well trained "presenters" in costume.
