Guided bike tour Amsterdam – Zaanse Schans (or rollerblading)

AMS-North: both hip and scenic | Mills | Twiske recreational area | Historic houses  | nature | Private | High end | refreshing | Zaanse Schans: wooden shoes, cheese and (many) windmills.

To the Zaanse Schans by bike with your private group | Ask the Lex and the City Amsterdam guide to lead you the way.

Lex and the City private tour guides in front of the (many) windmills of the Zaanse Schans – in 2019. Sven was biking and Lex was skating.

The Zaanse Schans is one of the major tourist attractions of the Netherlands.  Historic mills and green wooden houses were relocated here to recreate the look of an 18th/19th-century village. If still needed, first read more about the Zaanse Schans on their website. It’ll bring you into a stereotype ancient world of wooden shoes (clogs), cheese farms, cows and flowers, however it represents our history. 

Our role is to show you the scenic bike route from Amsterdam to Zaanse Schans, come up with appealing stories about it during the private tour, and be your guide at the Zaanse Schans as well. 

Day trip to the Zaanse Schans, riding a bike, footbike or by inline skates (or a combination). Get a bit into the everyday lives of people from the Netherlands, as this is not a standard touristic trail. (Try find other suppliers doing it; OKOK probably one other. ;))

Bike ride out, being a nice combination with the Amsterdam highlights and hiden gems and, in spring, with the tulips in North-Holland; the world’s single biggest flower bulb field.

A bike ride to Zaanse Schans: starting from your hotel (?), heading for the small ferry to the North, discovering the Northern part of Amsterdam (with a great mill), showing you the green area with appealing bike paths, “‘t Twiske”.   

By bike skating or by footbike (scooter) One way is appr. 22 km. With time for swimming, good food, connecting and tanning. It is also a great way to be in less touristic surroundings, before arriving at the Zaanse Schans. The bike lanes are almost…Zen. ;) 

Tour along tree-lined bike paths for families (Children adore it.), business and even VIP groups, eager to get to know famous spots in the neighbourhood of Amsterdam. With a curious eye.
Possibly part of an incentive trip.

“This morning I have been footbiking to Zaanse Schans in the early morning. On my bucketlist was still to bike on my own at Zaanse Schans without seeing or meeting anyone. It turned out the way I had fancied it.”
