Zaandam might be one of the most popular cities to visit in the Netherlands, thanks to its many attractions. The shopping street is a favoured destination with Dutch people, while tourists are more attracted to the architecture, surroundings and history of the city.
Thanks to the great infrastructure, you can stay anywhere in Zaandam and still be close to most of the attractions in the city. There are several hotels to choose from in the city. Stay in a hotel close to the city centre for a central location and great connections to surrounding attractions and cities.
Zaandam’s main attraction for foreign tourists is the Zaanse Schans. This is an area the locals established in order to preserve its history for following generations. People actually live in some of the old Zaanse houses. In other buildings you can find a wooden shoe factory, a bakery museum or a replica of the first Albert Heijn store. In this area, there are also a few museums. Visit the Verkade Paviljoen to learn more about this historical Dutch brand and the Zaandam Museum to learn more about the city.
Zaandam has their own architectural style. You can recognize the ‘Zaanse huisjes’ (Zaanse houses) anywhere. After visiting the Zaanse Schans, you will be able to point them out while wandering the city, especially the city centre. The most remarkable building is the hotel just outside the central station. Its façade is made of many Zaanse houses. Only one of them is blue, Albert Heijn blue, to be specific. This part was sponsored by the company. The shopping street has been undergoing renovations to match the Zaanse houses.
Speaking of shopping, people from all over the country travel to Zaandam to go shopping. This started in 2012, when the Irish company Primark opened a store in the city. This so called ‘Primark tourism’ has boosted the city centre. It receives many, many visitors and has attracted other brands and companies to relocate to the city. The main shopping street is the Gedempte Gracht, but there are also side streets where you can shop. On Thursdays there is a weekly farmers market in the city centre.
Zaandam also has a lot to offer during the evenings. It has film houses, theatres and cinemas, but the Zaanse Dam is the spot where most locals hang out during the weekends and evenings. Here you will find several restaurants, terraces where you can enjoy a drink and bars that you can visit to go dancing.
And there’s more! In September, Zaandam is the finish place of the Dam tot Damloop, a 10 mile run from Amsterdam to Zaandam. The city has a few parks and is also very close to the national park ‘t Twiske. People visit ‘t Twiske to go for a walk, bikeride, to enjoy the sun and go swimming during summer, to work out or to go sailing on the lake for example.
