Amsterdam, Holland

Oplevelse med værten Hans

5,5 timer, Sprog: Engelsk, Tysk og Hollandsk

Det skal I lave

You will set off in a small group by bike through Amsterdam's best-kept secret, the Westzijderveld. This area, with wet meadows that lie just above, or even below, the water table, is a paradise for meadow birds. A farm landscape with long ditches, pollard-willows and cows, turning mills and swaying reed beds is . An example of a truly typical Dutch landscape.

When you cycle over the dike, you feel the wind blowing and you look almost beyond the horizon, where the windmills are turning. You visit a working windmill, where you can experience the power of a windmill yourself. The miller will also be happy to answer your questions. This area is only accessible by bike, there are no groups of tourists here and it is therefore a unique experience.

Next, you will cycle through an authentic neighborhood with working-class houses. You will see with your own eyes how people used to live there and also pass the rich merchant houses with their beautiful decorations.

Finally you will visit the Zaanse Schans, where you will see how they make clogs and cheese. And there is extensive opportunity to taste this Dutch delicacy.

Holland is water country, so there is no better ending to this tour than returning to Amsterdam by boat. The boat sails between May 1st and September 30t only.

A great opportunity to experience the dutch landscape, history and culture.

Hello, my name is Hans and since childhood, I have been fascinated by the history, culture and technology of the Netherlands.

In 1996 I graduated in European History and since then I lead tours through Amsterdam and the Netherlands. It is my passion to show the most beautiful places of the Netherlands and reveal to newcomers some of its charms, secrets and incredible stories.

Her skal du være

The Westerzijderveld is now a nature reserve, here you can feel the Dutch landscape. The wind blows freely over the field with water birds, reeds, mills and beautiful views. In the time of mills this was the largest industrial area in Europe.

Hans was wonderful. I am very short and had a hard time getting on and off the bike. Hans was comforting and kind. He helped me every step of the way. The trip was well worth every minute. I really recommend. To my Canadian friends I found the bikes to be larger than ours. If you are unsure let Hans know so that he can help you.

Great day trip as a local. Bike and train all together. Experience the windmills, the local commerce, the great chocolate and the walking through the suburbs. Hans is a very experienced person in the topic and he’ll show you how Amsterdam really works.

A fun day out with Hans and other travellers. It was a very relaxed day, with lots of free time. There was just enough cycling, but not too much that we were tired. Hans told us lots about Dutch lifestyle, history and more - we loved chatting with him. Of course, the windmills were amazing too! Recommended.

Diese Tour war sehr Informativ und meine Frau und ich haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Hans ist auf alle Fragen eingegangen und hat sich immer Zeit genommen. Ich würde in jedem Fall wieder eine Tour bei Hans buchen.

Really great day with Hans, everything was very well organized and we discovered wonderful places. Hans gives very precise and interesting explanations, it's much more than a regular touristic tour. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it !
