Details about Zaandam

Zaandam is the largest city in the Zaan region, with just under 79,000 inhabitants. In 1974 the city merged into the Municipality of Zaanstad and has been the main town ever since.

Characteristic is the activity of compagnies settled at the Zaan river. The food industry and paint chemistry in particular established themselves here. Before that, it was mainly an industrial mill area and now it is a world-famous tourist attraction. It is perhaps precisely this raw industrial character that makes this place so interesting today.


In a place like Zaandam you do not lack anything in terms of facilities. There is a wide choice of primary and secondary schools. You will also find a very wide range of sports, leisure and shops, including a very large residential boulevard. But the Flinders home furnishing shop is also well worth a visit if you are looking for a new interior . Very handy if you want to move house.


Zaandam is easily accessible by car via the highway A7 and A8. Since the construction of the second Coentunnel, Amsterdam is also easily accessible by car. Do you prefer to travel by public transport? Zaandam has two train stations with excellent connections to Amsterdam. Regional transport by bus is provided by Connexxion.
