Visit Holland - The Netherlands

Term Definition

Zaanstreek-Waterland  (Dutch: Waterland en Zaanstreek) is a showcase of every stereotype one would expect from the country: dykes, windmills, flowers and wooden houses dot its flat rural lands. Some of these typical rural villages and attractions include Broek in Waterland, Edam, Marken, Monnickendam, Volendam and Zaanse Schans.
