The centre of Zaandam has undergone a complete transformation in recent years. It has become a vibrant area where you can have fun shopping and going out and where you can enjoy architecture, culture and history. The traditional Zaandam wooden houses, such as the Tsar Peter House, were used as models for the city hall and the Inntel Hotel. The café and restaurant square ‘de Dam’ offers plenty of options for a nice break.
