Hop on Hop off Holland

This Hop On Hop Off tour through Holland’s picturesque countryside is the perfect way to explore Holland outside the city and experience the rich culture! The tour includes six stops which all promise a unique insight into Dutch history and tradition. There are buses every 45 minutes from each stop which provides the perfect amount of freedom to enjoy your favourite area at your own leisure! Also included is an audio walking tour for each stop.

The stops include: Zaanse Schans, Edam, Volendam, Henri Willig Cheese Farm Jacobshoeve, Monnickendam and then back to Amsterdam

The first stop is the Zaanse Schans. This area is a major attraction particularly because of its abundance of well-preserved historic windmills and houses. There are also several museums in the neighbourhood highlighting Dutch culture and traditions, including a clog warehouse! The windmills at the Zaanse Schans really bring Dutch history to life and is a must-see during this Hop On Hop Off excursion.

The next two stops include Edam and Volendam. While smaller than Volendam, Edam holds particular fame for its cheese and old city centre. Both are known for their fishing boats and scenery. Traditional Dutch costumes are still worn by some residents in Volendam, which was also once a retreat for famous artists. Both Picasso and Renoir spent time in this beautiful village during the 20th century.

The fourth stop, the Cheese Farm “Jacobshoeve,” is a unique opportunity to witness the process of cheese making as well as experience a free guided tour of the Farm. This is, of course, a must-do whilst in the Netherlands!

Monnickendam is the last stop on the tour and is rich in history. Although it is a small fishing village today, it holds much historical significance as a port in earlier centuries. Notable architecture includes the fourteenth-century church of St. Nicholas, which was later renovated in 1602, and the synagogue which was built in 1894.
