The Zaanse Schans is great, but the surrounding area is also worth a visit. By cycling, you can see more in less time than walking. At the Zaanse Schans, you can hire bikes by ‘Zaanse Schans Bike Rent’. You will soon be cycling past the monumental merchants’ mansions in Zaandijk, the picturesque village of Haaldersbroek and the new Zaandam city centre! Due to safety reasons it is not allowed to cycle on the small roads between the houses of the Zaanse Schans, but there is an ongoing cycle path on the Kalverringdijk.
