Wooden Shoe Workshop

Experience a world of wooden shoes at ‘De Zaanse Schans’

Our story begins with a proud family...

and ends with preserving the traditional Dutch trade of clog making for future generations.

...and the trade of clog making.

Using antique machines, we still make clogs in the same way as they were made a hundred years ago. It continues to be a fascinating spectacle for young and old alike.

You can view our unique collection of clogs with free admission.

The clog is not just a work shoe, it is also a popular subject for artists.

We are located at the Zaanse Schans.

It’s a unique area near Amsterdam with working mills and historic houses.

If you are interested in Dutch history and clog making in particular, then you are more than welcome to visit us. We will make sure your visit is a wonderful experience to remember.
