"Sitting on the banks of the Markermeer, the picturesque and typically Dutch town of Edam - around 20km northwest of Amsterdam - may be small but it's famous across the world. Cheese production started here back in the 14th century and this is your chance to discover its history and sample some of the very best. Driving out of the city you will explore the historic communities of Edam and Zaanse Schans, both famed for their forages, windmills and old wooden houses, and visit cheese farms to learn all about the production process."
