The climate of Zaandam (the Netherlands)
Zaandam is a medium-sized city in the province of North Holland on the banks of the Zaan. Zaandam has been part of the municipality of Zaanstad since 1974. Zaandam is the largest city in this municipality. Other places in this municipality are: Assendelft, Krommenie, Wormerveer, Westzaan, Zaandijk and Koog aan de Zaan. Zaandam was founded in the 19th century when two smaller towns were consolidated to create one bigger town. Zaandam is flourishing economically because it is situated in the Zaanstreek (region). Zaandam has always been known for the cocoa processing industry. Verkade still have their headquarters in Zaandam. In the old city center several typical houses can be found. The architecture of the town hall and the hotel have been inspired by these houses. Zaandam has a moderate maritime climate influenced by the North Sea. Because of this influence temperatures are slightly lower here on average than in the more easterly located places in the Netherlands. However, during the winter temperatures are slightly higher on average. This also means longer periods with subzero temperatures do not occur as frequently as in the more easterly located places in the Netherlands. However, extremes in temperatures may occur. Precipitation is evenly spread out over the year.
