Food & Drinks
Our region has been called the pantry of the Netherlands for a long time. Beautiful warehouses and old factories on the banks of our river Zaan still recall those days. The love for 'food' has never gone away. The well-known Zaan mayonaise and mustard have been joined by delicacies including Zaanse sambal, in October we celebrate the Cacao month, each year a Food Festival is hosted at the Zaanbocht, we have the best cooking store in the world, our own local eigen breweries and our own chocolate factory.
Zaandam City Centre
In recent years, the city centre of Zaandam has undergone a true metamorphosis. City Centre Zaandam offers a unique combination of shopping and entertainment, culture and history. In the city centre you can visit the Czar Peter House (Czaar Peterhuisje). This is one of the oldest wooden cottages surviving in the Netherlands, and is the place where the Russian Czar Peter the Great once used to stay when visiting the Netherlands to learn more about the Dutch shipbuilding industry. And also the French painter Monet has left his footsteps here in the centre of Zaandam.
