We sail from Rotterdam to Zaandam this morning, arriving in Zaandam mid-afternoon.

Zaandam is located on the banks of the Zaan River and there’s free time to explore this charming town this afternoon. The Czaar Peterhuisje (Tsar Peter house) can be found in the centre of Zaandam and it is one of the oldest wooden houses in Holland built in 1632. Peter the Great stayed here in 1697 before he left for the V.O.C. shipyards in Amsterdam. With his brief stay, he gave this humble wooden labourer’s house its name and fame.

Enjoy a relaxing evening on board as we are berthed overnight in Zaandam.

We have recently returned from another Self Drive holiday to Llandudno, staying at the Marine Hotel. We had the most wonderful time - Hotel was again clean and comfortable and was beautifully warm (which was needed). All staff are wonderfully friendly and welcoming and we could not fault this holiday - we always enjoy our stay and cannot wait to return.
