    Kogerkerk - Koog aan de Zaan

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Oct 10, 2010

    The Kogerkek was constructed in 1686 at the center of Koog aan de Zaan, at that time a village of about 200 houses and a thousand inhabitants. The original population changed from fishermen and farmers to millers and tradesmen.

    The cementery was part of the church from the beginning. Both the church and the cementery were enlarged in 1825.

    The church tower was hit by lightning at May 2, 1920. A fire followed that destroyed the tower and a major part of the roof. The reconstruction lasted two years.

    In front of the church is a small building called "De Stolp", an administrative office and meeting facility.

    Albert Heyn supermarket - Koog aan de Zaan

    by pieter_jan_v Updated Oct 10, 2010

    The Koog aan de Zaan Albert Heyn is cleverly constructed underneath the A8 highway.
    The building even got an architectural price.

    For the rest it's Albert Heyn (close to its Zaandam roots) and the in-doors Gall & Gall liquor store.

    What to buy: Groceries.
