Alkmaar and Zaanse Schans for a day trip

Hi,

I want to visit Alkmaar for the cheese market. On my way back to Amsterdam I was wondering to visit the windmills in Zaanse Schans. Can anyone please suggest how to travel from Alkmaar to Zaanse Schans?

Thanks

You can take a train to Zaanse Schans train station and walk to Zaanse Schans from there. You can plan all public transport in the Netherlands by using Google Maps or this journey planner: https://www.9292.nl/en

Well, I can see trains from Alkmaar to Zaanse Schans both on Google Maps and on the train planner I gave you the link to. So either you are not looking good enough or maybe you have made some kind of spelling mistake. What day do you want to travel?

“The full name of the railway station is Zaandijk Zaanse Schans btw”

Yes, but both Google Maps and https://9292.nl/en accept “Zaanse Schans” as the name of the train station.

I would like to do the same: travel to Alkmaar then see Zaanse Schans on the return to Amsterdam Central. Is there any suggestion for the type of train tickets to purchase to do this? One-way each time?
