We are pleased to welcome you to Zaandam, the heart of the Zaanstreek (Waterland) region. This area is considered to be the oldest industrial region in Europe. The many mills, the old factory buildings, and the current industrial activity are proof of this. Bed & Breakfast The Kraaienest (Crow’s Nest) is located on the edge of the lively centre of Zaandam, but is in a unique rural area. The farmhouse is a municipal monument and we offer a unique bed and breakfast with two distinctive and comfortable guest rooms that are characteristic of their era.
The Kraaienest is a good base for discovering Zaanstreek, and visiting Amsterdam and the historic towns and villages of North Holland. There is excellent public transport available (both train and bus) within walking distance. The train station can be reached by foot in 12 minutes. By train, you can reach Zaanse Schans or the Central Station of Amsterdam within 15 minutes.
During your stay we will advise you about all the things to do and see in the area.
