Original dutch

The banks of the Zaan river, a few kilometers north of Amsterdam, is the set of one of the most photogenic village of windmills in the Netherlands. The famous painter Claude Monet, during his stay in Holland, found here his main source of inspiration! It is your turn to discover this unique place, a postcard setting which represents perfectly the Holland of old times.

The village of windmills has become a protected regional reserve, the perfect location for a splendid bike tour, led by one of hour touristic guide who will share with you the history and traditions of Holland.

Enjoy a relaxing ride alongside the riverbanks, and the unmissable stop to visit one of the Dutch windmills (the entry ticket to the windmill is included in the price of the guided bike tour).

The four golden rules of a good cyclist

Rule 1
1/ Respect the traffic rules
and turn on the lights!

Even if everyone does not...

Rule 2
2/ use your hands before turning

Let other know where you are going,
take a look behind you before turning

Rule 3
3/ Respect the pedestrians
and the other cyclists

Do not stay in the middle of sidewalks
and pay attention to the rings!

Rule 4
4/ Hold your right

Ne restez pas au milieu des voies de circulation,
et restez les uns derrière les autres,
en file indienne
