We are much more than just a Restaurant & Brasserie. The location is unique, in the middle of the Zaanse Schans. The buildings are historic as well as the furnishings and decoration. In addition, we offer various halls, rooms and terraces, eight in total. But we are also unique in terms of facilities, which, partly in view of the location on the Zaanse Schans, located on the beautiful Zaan, offers an extra dimension.

Are you interested in all the rooms and their possibilities? And do you want to have an overview all the arrangements we can do for you? Then check out the following link:


How would you explain if you cater the only terrace overlooking the Zaan with a view at the world-famous Windmill-panorama? Pretty much THE reason for many of the millions of people visiting the Zaanse Schans every year. Having a nice lunch in the spring or sipping on your Aperol Spritz at sunset, watching the sun disappear behind the 17th century ‘skyline’? It does not get any better than this probably….


At d’Swarte Walvis, there are several rooms with a unique history available for rent, including the orphanage/the conservatory, the vleethuis (the bar), the commander’s room (1st floor), and the Zaandijk Town Hall.
