Amsterdam

West

share

Amsterdam West is both a residential and commercial district of the city sandwiched between four parks, the Vondel Park, Rembrandt Park, Erasmus Park and Westerpark, so you’re never far away from a green space for a picnic, some good cycling or just a relaxing time spent on a patch of grass. The area around Overtoom is legendary for its restaurants that serve anything from Ethiopian to Iranian cuisine, not to mention its numerous shops, many of which specialise in cutting-edge interior design items for homes and offices. Eerste Constantijn Huijgensstraat and Bilderdijkstraat are also home to cosy cafés and pubs, while the Westergasfabriek in the north of the district is a former industrial estate that has been converted into a creative cultural park full of galleries, clubs and restaurants – an absolute must-see in West!
