Did you know...?

Zaandam was the first city in Europe to have a McDonald's restaurant. The outlet in Zaandam was opened in 1971.

McDonald's International (Press Release), "Fascinating McFacts about McDonald's International", 1996

A great aspect of Zaandam are those old warehouses and factory buildings along the river Zaan. Nice pictures!

Interesting city! Very rare look, doesn't look like anything else, yet its almost unknown.



This building was featured in a swedish newspaper some years ago. Isnt it a hotel?

Thanks for the nice pictures! Did you also see the similar warehouses/factories along the Zaan in Wormer?

No, unfortunately I hadn't heard about that place. It's a shame because (judging by the map) I was taking pictures in the nearby towns...

I´ve only been there because my friend who now lives in Zaandam lived in Wormer first, and otherwise I would not have known of the existence of thes beautiful buildings either:

Fun fact: Zaandam was one of the first industrialized areas in the world, using not coal power, but wind power to power their mills.
