The oldest house at Zaanse Schans (1623) makes a fitting home for antique shop het Jagershuis. It’s packed with “trash & treasures”! What could be better than pottering around in this charming shop? You are bound to find something you like, as a lasting souvenir of your visit. The merchant’s residence Het Jagershuis was a listed building originally located on Jagerspad in Zaandam. It takes its name from Claes de Jager, a well-to-do owner of three sawmills. The kingpost on the roof features a decorative carving in Gothic style. The leaded glass windows with antique glass originate from a church in Westzaan. The garden behind the Jagershuis features an original well made with traditional IJssel bricks.
