Two questions please:)

My family and I are staying at the inntel hotel in Zaandam and are arriving late (10pm) is there any restaurants or food market open at that time?

The next day Thinking of walking from the hotel to Zaanse Schans to see some of the area. Is it a scenic walk or should I just take the train /bus

Thank you for your time:)

All the main supermarkets close at 10pm. There is a nightshop convenience store open until 12pm nearby https://goo.gl/maps/aYfAKjUzkf52

If you are arriving at Schiphol it might be easier to eat there and shop at the large AH supermarket on Schiphol Plaza than wait until you get to Zaandam. I think your restaurant options after 10pm would be quite limited.

Going to the Zaanse Schans you should just take the train. There is no scenic route from the Intell. It is only 2 stops on the train.

There actually is a ferry from Zaandam to ZS which might be nicer than either train or bus. https://www.zaanferry.com/dienstregeling/

Sorry only in Dutch.

If not that then with 4 of you it would be likely cheaper to get a taxi. The train station is 15 minutes walk from ZS anyway.

The same company also runs a ferry to Amsterdam Centraal.
