The Zaanse Schans is a neighborhood with wooden buildings in the Zaanstad municipality. It’s located along the river Zaan, across from the village Zaandijk, and next to the Julianabrug. It’s a famous tourist destination, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors every year (1.8 million in 2016, 2.2 million in 2017). It was set up with the intention of preserving the historical heritage, but it’s not a closed, open-air museum. The houses are inhabited, so it's not just tourists visiting the area.
