Full itinerary

Within 15 minutes we have left the busy city center of Amsterdam behind us and we will start to discover the Netherlands beyond Amsterdam.

Meadows, Cows, Ditches and Windmills will take you to the world famous Afsluitdijk. This dike, connecting the 2 northern provinces and protecting half of the country against the force of the North Sea is the gateway to the Amsterdam Lake District. here you will discover the Netherlands beyond the busy city of Amsterdam.

Time to explore the dike. Walk across to the North sea, climb the monument; a watchtower to look out over both the Ijssel lake and the North sea, or take a picture with Mr. Lelie, founder of the dike.

Next we enter the Amsterdam Lake District in the province of Friesland. Where we step back in time in the only open air museum village in the area. Get your camera’s ready because you want to capture this. Meet the villagers, have our local guide take you back in time to the craftsman, inside and old farmhouse, walk through the grasslands and take a picture with the cows in the meadows.

Next we will visit Hindeloopen. A beautiful, authentic city with only 900 inhabitants. Our local guide will await you and take you through the streets and alleys of this wonderful little city. Visit the painting shop of Mr. Roosje. The only painter in the city which still paints according to the typical Hindelooper style.

Next, it’s time for some free time. Wander through the streets, buy local souvenirs or have a drink in the harbour.

You can’t leave the Netherlands without tasting typical Dutch cheese. Therefore we take you to traditional Dutch cheese maker. The farmer will tell you everything about cows, mill, making cheese and of course you will try some delicious Dutch cheeses.

Our final stop will be at the beautiful Ir. D.F. Woudagemaal. A steam pumping station at the border of the Amsterdam Lake District. Where a local operator will give you entrance to the heart of this Steam Cathedral. It is not without reason that this beautiful and indispensable building has been a UNESCO World Monument for several years.

By the end of the afternoon it’s time to head back to Amsterdam, where you will enjoy your evening in the city thinking about the beauty of the Netherlands beyond Amsterdam.
