A visit to Zaanse Schans would not be complete without attending the Kooijman Souvenirs & Clogs Wooden Shoe Workshop (now there’s a mouthful for you). I say that because, for most of us ignorant tourists, besides tulips and windmills, clogs have become synonymous with Holland....More

A great place to see how traditional wooden shoes are made. You can't miss the location as it has large yellow wooden shoes out the front that people can sit in or there are smaller ones that people can stand in. A very interesting place...More

The demonstration is really good showing how the outside and inside is carved out. The display cases explaining how clogs differ around the country and were carved as engagement gifts were interesting.

I think its a worthwhile experience to see how the clogs or wooden shoes are made. Its a simple demo & does not take much time but you et to see a wooden shoe made & the significance of it during the marriage. Very colourful...More
