Overview

The shopping area in Zaandam offers everything for a day of great shopping. Since a few years the city centre has transformed into an interesting architectural area. The traditional houses are mixed up with modern day aspects. When arriving by train, the first thing you see is the world famous Inntel Hotel. Next to it is the city's town hall. From here you walk straight into the shopping area!

If you are in the Amsterdam area you need to visit this place. You can tour working windmills, see how wooden shoes are made, see how cheese is made and sample different kinds of cheeses, browse thru many unique shops and eat at delicious restaurants.

Like Most places here it is very tourist orientated and is what you want think Amsterdam-should be. Have a-look and food is reasonable Go early in the morning as the crowds are far less than after 11 am when all the buses arrive

The area is definitely worth visiting from Amsterdam and even further away. However, the touristic shops were not even close being the most interesting part but rather the unique setup overall and working windmills.

Zaandam is a nice size city with lots of shopping, but you can do that anywhere, the main draw is Zaanse Schans, the small village with many windmills. This is where you should spend your time, and taking a bus from Centraal in Amsterdam is...More
