Millions of tourists come to the Zaanse Schans to enjoy the view of picturesque historical wooden houses and windmills.
But did you know that a quarter of the global production of cacao is centered in this area? We bet you didn’t.
Cacao production along the Zaan river has a rich heritage beginning in the 1820’s and still thriving this day. But of course, it wasn’t always rosy. Along the way there had been some spectacular and amusing failures (with more than the fair share of factories going up in smoke)
Our chocolate walkabout tour will tell you some of the more juicy stories about our cacao heritage, and taking you along functioning and mothballed cocoa factories. And all this with the picture perfect Old Zaandijk as our backdrop. We end the tour our chocolate atelier where we get down to serious business- chocolate tasting. We will introduce you to chocolates you didn’t know you were looking for!
