Woning just outside Amsterdam's ring road offers many advantages. House prices are more attractive than in the city, you have more space, sometimes a garden, and all the amenities of the capital are easily accessible. Don't want to live in the city but do want to live near the city? Then Zaandam is a very good option! The fact that Zaandam is an attractive place to live for almost 80,000 inhabitants has everything to do with the allure of the big city and the atmosphere of a village, with all facilities just a stone's throw away.
