What you'll do

9.29 - from Amsterdam Central we will take the train to North Holland.
Dutch lifestyle today is very different from how was more than 100 years ago. I want to invite you to get back in time and to discover how was daily routine in a Dutch family and community in XVIII -XIX century.
During this experience you will visit a unique village near the sea and we will experience how children, woman and man were earning for the living by the sea.
Also, you will find out how Dutch people for the last 500 years are fighting with the sea and are reclaiming the land. And why the Zuiderzee was closed from the North Sea.
During the experience we will visit a fishing village and eat a smoked fresh fish as it was prepared in the old times.
We will visit one of the oldest steam laundries in the area and learn how clean and immaculate white linen was cleaned.
We will also visit a 1905 school, old pharmacy, bakery, a cheese storage house and play some old Dutch games.
At 18:00 we will be back in Amsterdam Central with the train.
Other things to note
Make sure you had a good breakfast. You will need energy for this experience. I would also suggest to have an extra food/snack.
