The most beautiful stretch of the river Zaan is named Zaanbocht. It is the loveliest place for promenading. Here you can shop in real quality stores, just go for a walk, relax on a terrace or enjoy wonderful events. And all of this accompanied by a majestic view of beautifully restored warehouses and factories with names that remind of the East Indies. Each piece of heritage tells its own story of the Zaanstreek’s illustrious past.
