Temporary housing in Amsterdam

Temporary housing in Amsterdam

Those who move to Amsterdam must be prepared to leave their car outside the city and buy a bicycle instead. The city has pledged to become the greenest city in Europe, so cars that are not electric cars will have difficulties getting through the city. The parking fees are correspondingly high and you have to wait a very long time for a resident parking permit. But even without a car you can get around very well, especially by bicycle. Find out what the various districts have to offer and where temporary accommodation in Amsterdam is particularly worthwhile.

Central Accommodation in Amsterdam Centrum

The Amsterdam city centre is usually the first thing that a tourist visits. Here you will find Amsterdam Central Station as well as Dam, a large square with the Royal Palace (Paleis op de Dam) and the Gothic church “Nieuwekerk”. Amsterdam Centrum offers a lot of shopping possibilities, but also a lot of tourist bustle. The red light district “De Wallen” as well as the trendy districts Jordaan and Weesperbuurt en Plantage belong to the district Amsterdam Centrum.

The trendy district Jordaan

Jordaan is a former working-class neighborhood that has developed into a trendy area. Some of the houses here have courtyards called “Hofjes”, which are freely accessible and beautiful to look at. The Jordaan district has many canals, which is why there are so many houseboats here. Otherwise, Jordaan is characterized by its narrow streets and many small, unusual shops. From the Jordaan quarter the 9 Straatjes, nine picturesque streets in which there are many small boutiques and nice restaurants, branch off. However, living in this beautiful area has its price. Ever since the district was gentrified, rental prices have risen.

Living in the green area of De Plantage

Weesperburrt en Plantage (often simply called De Plantage) is a small, predominantly green district in Amsterdam. Here you will find the Royal Zoo “Artis” as well as a botanical garden and the small but beautiful Wertheimpark. But also culturally De Plantage has a lot to offer. For example, there is “Het Muziektheater” (a large opera house) and the Rembrandthaus where Rembrandt van Rijn lived. Another interesting sight in De Plantage is “De Gooyer”, the highest wooden windmill in the Netherlands. Also worth a visit is the flea market at the Waterlooplein which is open 6 days a week and where there is a lot to browse. If you like to live in peace and quiet and in the green, De Plantage is the place for you.

Temporary Accommodation in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid

Amsterdam Oud-Zuid is a large urban district where you can discover quite a few things. In addition to the trendy district De Pijp and the museum quarter, you will find, for example, the Beethovenstraat which is particularly interesting for shopping enthusiasts. Furthermore, the first brewery of the Dutch beer brand Heineken is located in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid. Here you can visit a multimedia exhibition every day where you can learn more about the brewing process and try the beer.

The popular district of De Pijp

De Pijp is the up-and-coming and trendy district of Amsterdam. Many young families and students have settled here. Therefore De Pijp is also very international, which is particularly reflected in the variety of restaurants. Anyone can find something they like here. In De Pijp you will quickly feel at home, as the district, despite its increasing popularity, is not too crowded and consists mostly of residential buildings. The Albert Cuypmarkt, which is open daily (except Sundays) and where you can buy food, clothes and household appliances, is definitely worth a visit. De Pijp is the perfect place for those who want to feel at home in Amsterdam for a while.

Museumkwartier Amsterdam

As the name suggests, there are several museums to visit in the museum quarter of Amsterdam. Among them are for example the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art and the Van Gogh Museum. In winter, an ice rink is set up on the Museumplein (the museums square) where you can skate. The Concertgebouw (Concert Building) is also located in the museum quarter, where you can listen to classical concerts with breathtaking acoustics and where the orchestra sometimes even plays outside the building. To relax, you can go to Vondelpark, an English landscape garden with a playground, an open-air stage and a teahouse.

Temporary Accommodation in Amsterdam Noord

From the centre of Amsterdam you can take a free ferry, on which you can also take your bicycle free of charge, across the river IJ to Amsterdam Noord. This was once the largest shipyard in Europe, which is why there is a large industrial area that has been reinvented. Once a month you can visit the largest flea market in Europe (IJ-Hallen flea market) or visit interesting restaurants, bars and concert locations. The Eye Film Museum is also located in Amsterdam Noord. There are exhibitions about film and a cinema where new films as well as classics are shown. Further outside Amsterdam Noord, you will find another side of Amsterdam. Small villages are located here in rural areas that belong to the city area and in which you can see many “Stolpboerderij” (large farmhouses with high thatched roofs). These suburbs are particularly suitable for families with children and people who like it more rural but still want to live close to the city centre.
