From the ring road (A10), follow the A7/A8 motorway towards Alkmaar.
At the Zaandam intersection, continue on the A7 motorway towards Leeuwarden/Purmerend. Leave the motorway at the exit Zaandijk/Zaanse Schans. At the end of the exit, turn left under the motorway. Follow the road for about 2.5 km: you will pass the Zaanse Schans on your right. Continue over the bridge, and then at the traffic lights and windmill turn left. After about 500 meters you will see a large, odd-shaped monkey bread tree on your left. The neighbouring wooden house painted is Lagendijk 52-54.
At the Zaandam intersection take the motorway towards Alkmaar / Beverwijk (A8), and leave the motorway at the exit Zaandijk / Koog aan de Zaan. Thereafter: see above.
Leave the A9 motorway at the exit Amsterdam / Zaanstad. Drive along the trunk road towards Zaanstad, and remain on this road. You will drive through Krommenie and then Wormerveer. You will then see a Zaandijk sign. Turn left at the traffic lights next to the level crossing (on to the Guisweg, in the direction of the Zaanse Schans ): at the next traffic lights (in front of the bridge) turn right. After about 500 meters you will see a large, odd-shaped monkey bread tree on your left. The neighbouring wooden house painted is Lagendijk 52-54.
Important: a number of navigation systems based on the TomTom will bring you to an identical address in the adjacent village of Zaandijk. This is not our B & B: you will not be greeted by us, but by the now somewhat irritated residents.
