I thought it was going to be just a tourist trap as I wasn’t following my gut instinct. I saw many people walking towards the shoe place, Kooijman Klompenmakerij, and thought I should just get out of line. I decided, I’m here, let’s just check...More

A colourful workshop with a clog demonstration. Bit crowded due to summer tourist rush. But a good stop to experience at Zaanse Schans.

Only a video—not an actual demonstration of wooden shoes being made. This was mainly a store where you could buy wooden shoes. There were some antique wooden shoes to see behind glass. There was a giant wooden shoe outside which was fun for taking pictures.

They have a demonstration several times in the day. They show you how the wooden shoes made. Worth to take time for that. Busy with tourist all the time. Traveling groups come in all the seasons.

Apparently one of the most popular spots on the Zaanse Schans, considering the amount of people going there. But it is worthwhile a visit since they demonstrate how wooden shoes are made. If you have questions during the demonstration you are free to ask them....More

What would a tourist Dutch village be without giant clogs for daft photographs? To be fair, this part of the village also includes demonstrations on how traditional clogs are made, and you can of course buy a pair (then wonder forever more why you had...More

Zaanse Schans is the Dutch clog (Klompen) factory at Klompenmakerij. To get here, simply walk along the main path Zeilenmakerspad or just follow the crowd and look for a giant wooden clog outside. The Dutch have been wearing wooden shoes, or clogs, or “Klompen” since...More

This was cool, I really enjoyed the demonstration on how they make the shoes as well as the cheeses. I love how all the houses were green and cute. Very nice little town. Thanks to the residents for making it available to us.
