It is a place which takes you back to the 18th and 19th century with its well-preserved green wooden houses, functioning windmills, barns and workshops. It is a minuscule representation of the 1100 windmills which were built between 17th & 19th century. We got to witness the actual functioning of a saw mill as the weather was in our favour. The mechanism was simple yet ingenious. It was interesting to hear the history of the place while imagining the area from 17th century till today. The windmills looked beautiful on the backdrop of Zaan river. There were walking as well as cycling tours, taking small groups around the place.
