Centre of Dutch heritage

Zaanstad is synonym of Dutch industrial heritage. The most popular area is the Zaanse Schans which offers working mills, Zaanse Style houses and structures and pedestrian routes; a veritable Walhalla for visitors seeking Dutch cultural history. Especially worthwhile is the Panorama of mills along the Kalverringdijk, the various small museums and the Zaans museum. This includes a working production line taken from the old Verkade Factory. At the end of the 17th century, Tsar Peter the Great decided to personally learn about the society, trade and industry of Western-Europe. In 1697 the Tsar stayed in Zaandam to learn ship carpentry. The wooden house in which he stayed is still intact. This is also where a museum is located with an exposition on Tsar Peter the Great. In 1871, Claude Oscar Monet spent four months in Zaandam with his wife and child and made in that period up to 25 paintings. There is a walking-tour through Zaandam which takes you along the famous Blue House and the location where Monet created ‘ the Voorzaan and the Westerhem‘. On 2 June 2015 this painting was purchased by the Zaans Museum and can be admired there in the fall of 2015!

As one of Holland’s oldest seaports going back to the 13th century, and with a population of around just 16,000 people, Harlingen offers a wonderful contrast to Amsterdam, where the merchant houses, canals and inner harbours serve as an open-air museum instantly taking guests back to the Dutch Golden Age of shipping.
