Amsterdam East is a bit different then the other neighbourhoods. Sometimes when I walk here it reminds me a bit of some area’s in Berlin. It is one of the upcoming or so called hipster neighbourhoods in Amsterdam! It almost seems that a new hotspot pops up almost every day in this neighbourhood. It’s nearby the city center, but has such a different more alternative vibe. Visit citybeach ‘Roest‘ for a drink on the waterfront. Or have a drink at the rooftop of ‘The Volkshotel’ is a must visit to enjoy the stunning views over Amsterdam!
When it comes to restaurants there is something for everyone. From trendy coffee bars, industrial warehouses, cocktail bars to concept stores! And don’t forget to visit our famous zoo ‘Artis‘. The Czaar Peter Street and the Javastraat are some of the best shopping streets on the East side of town. All kinds of trendy shops can be found here. If you want the local feel and multi-culti then stroll over the Dappermarket or wander around the Oosterpark. The renewed Beukenplein is perfect for a drink afterwards! And if you want to visit a beautiful park you have to go to park Franckendael and have dinner at the amazing glass house restaurant ‘De Kas’.
