New construction Centrum
The canals, the Amstel, the ancient facades, the bridges, the terraces, the museums and the rich history. The center of Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful places to live, (perhaps) in the world. The Centrum district has many neighborhoods, each with its own face. For example, the typical atmosphere in the Jordaan is not comparable to the industrial past of the Eastern Islands. Yet there is also one big agreement between all neighborhoods in the center: water. Three percent of the entire surface of this district consists of water.
Stadsdeel Centrum has been a protected cityscape since 1999. This means that the construction in the neighborhood is strictly regulated to protect the cityscape. This makes it a very special neighborhood to live. The entire center of Amsterdam breathes centuries of history and atmosphere.
New construction in the Center
New construction in the center of Amsterdam is special. The soil is extremely expensive, because there is little space and it is a popular area. Construction is also strictly regulated. Who wants to live in the center is therefore quickly dependent on existing construction. Yet once in a while there is an interesting project. This is currently De Keizer . This project on the Spuistraat, behind the Paleis op de Dam, consists of 42 new construction and 27 renovation apartments in five eighteenth and nineteenth century buildings. From cleverly arranged studios to luxurious loft apartments: the choice is great in De Keizer. Also handy to know: there is a parking garage under the complex.

From the stately canal district to the picturesque streets of the Western Islands, the Centrum district is divided into different neighborhoods. What is there to do in these neighborhoods? And where must you have been? An overview:
The canals of Amsterdam are known as a top Dutch place, where crowds of tourists walk through the cramped streets. But the real Amsterdammer with an eye for detail knows how to discover the hidden gems.
The 9 Streets
Not hidden, but a gem! The 9 Straatjes between the Singel and the Prinsengracht are the place for small, hip shops , fine cafes, artistic galleries and specialty shops.
Original California Burrito Company
While you look out for the crowds of tourists making their way to the Anne Frank House, enjoy the Original California Burrito Company relax from the best burrito in Amsterdam. Not for nothing rewarded with a 10 by Mokum Magazine !
Amsterdam from the water
The real Amsterdammer does not just cycle through the city without his hands, but once in a while also chooses a trip on the water! In every circle of friends there is someone who knows someone with a sloop. And if not, you can rent a boat via for example Kinboat.
Nieuwmarkt / Lastage
The Nieuwmarkt is of course known to everyone, but the Lastage is an unknown area. The Nieuwmarkt / Lastage runs from the Waterlooplein in the south to the Oosterdok, next to the Central Station, in the north. The neighborhood is one of the oldest in Amsterdam and that can be seen on the typical canals and cramped streets.
Organic market on Saturday
One of the nicest markets in Amsterdam is every Saturday at the Nieuwmarkt. This organic market there are various stalls with, among other things, organic bread, meat, ice cream and wine.
Get lost on the Zeedijk
A tropical combination of cute shops, lost tourists and a strong China Town feeling. For example, the Zeedijk is best described. If you like good Asian food, you can go completely loose here.
Oosterdok: from OBA to Vapiano
Oosterdok, between Nemo and Central Station, is a relatively new area with spectacular, almost un-Amsterdam buildings. One of them is the breathtaking building of the Amsterdam Public Library (OBA). Walk inside and then treat yourself to a fresh pizza from Vapiano.
Haarlemmerbuurt and Western Islands
Who lives in the Haarlemmerbuurt/Western Islands has the best of two worlds: one of the nicest shopping streets in Amsterdam and a neighborhood where you feel like you are in a small village.
Always something to do on the Haarlemmerstraat and Haarlemmerdijk
Cycling is sometimes an absolute nightmare on the Haarlemmerstraat and Haarlemmerdijk, but the large diversity of shops and cafes makes up for it. A wonderful place to stroll and stroll on a brash Saturday.
Get a movie at The Movies
Nothing wrong with a large cinema chain, of course. But try something else, grab a video at The Movies . You will fall for the intimate atmosphere, the accessibility and the art deco interior of this special film theater from 1912.
Walking over the Prinseneiland
Ready with the bustle and stress of the city center? The Prinseneiland is a stone’s throw from the Haarlemmerdijk. This island (and actually the whole neighborhood around it) is a car-free spot with small parks and lots of water. A wonderful place to relax!
Pick up 2.0 at DIS Dinner Shop
Sometimes you do not feel or have time to cook, but you are still looking for a good meal. At DIS they prepare tasty and healthy meals for you every day. Take out.
Looking for the typical Amsterdam folk atmosphere? Walk through the narrow streets and discover the authentic cafes of the Jordaan.
Strolling on the Westerstraat
On the side of the street you will find various clothing stores and specialty shops, in the middle of the street the terraces are full in summer.
Swimming at Het Marnix
Looking for some sportsmanship in the Jordaan? At The Marnix you can make nice laps, just in the middle of the city.
View of the Westerkerk
You may not always see her, but cycle or walk through the Jordan and then she is not to be missed: the beautiful church tower of the Westerkerk. Instagram worthy!
Weesperbuurt and Plantage
The Weesperbuurt and Plantage is more spacious with more attention to green than the other neighborhoods of the Centrum district. The small parks, larger streets and of course the Amstel give the neighborhood its own character.
Discover Artis, the oldest zoo in the Netherlands
Artis is the oldest zoo in the Netherlands (opened in 1838), but goes absolutely with his time. This way the animal enclosures become more contemporary, with more attention for the natural behavior of the animals. Reason enough to discover a day at Artis again!
A jungle in the city: Hortus Botanicus
Did you think Artis existed for a long time? The Hortus Botanicus , around the corner of the zoo, has been around since 1638! This botanical garden is more than an acre and contains more than six thousand tropical and indigenous trees and plants.
Relaxing on the Amstel
Water is enough in Amsterdam and places to enjoy it. Take, for example, the Weesperzijde on the Amstel. A wonderful place to sunbathe on a terrace and hang your feet in the water. And those who dare, can even take a leap in the deep. Whether that is wise, opinions are divided about that.
Eastern Isles and Quays
Do you like the coarser work, then you have to be here. In this part of the Centrum district, old warehouses have been transformed into lofts and offices. The classic Amsterdam architecture is combined here with modern lines and the best shopping street in the Netherlands.
Relax at the water at Amsterdam Roest
In an old factory on the water you can find Roest . This café/restaurant/club/relax place is popular with students and young people from the neighborhood and far beyond. In the summer it is crowded with passing boats that moor. In winter, fire pits are placed on the site for a little warmth and atmosphere.
Discover the Czaar Peterstraat
The Czaar Peterstraat is an apparently normal, rather bare street. But if you do your best, you will discover one hotspot after another. What about a peanut butter shop? Or a brunchroom specializing in waffles? It is not for nothing that the street was declared the shopping street of the year in 2016.
Drinks at Brouwerij ‘t IJ
The characteristic mill of Brewery ‘t IJ is almost symbolic of the rise of the specialty beer in the Netherlands . But apart from fine specialty beers, Brouwerij ‘t IJ also offers you a lovely terrace where you can relax. An ideal place for the Friday afternoon drink.
