  • Zaanse Schans village, Open - air museum: All these buildings were brought here from 1961 onwards bringing back to life this most prosperous period of the Zaan region. In its golden age, the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area on a scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills: wooden factories powered by wind. In these small factories, many tasks were being executed with the aid of wind energy: wood sawed by machine, grounding spices, oil for food and paint, flowers, cocoa powder and many other things. The prosperity in the 18th and 19th century can be seen in the Zaanse Schans windmill village in several ways. Alongside windmills, barns and other buildings, you will see beautiful houses that were originally built as home to rich windmill owners and merchants. These houses have attractive facades and have been painted in traditional colors such as green, beige and light blue.
