Amsterdam Zuid

·         Willemspark neighbourhood 

The Willemspark neighbourhood is ideally situated between the green Vondelpark, the cultural attractions of the Museum Quarter, and the hustle and bustle of the city centre, which is at walking or cycling distance. The neighbourhood lies between the Amstelveenseweg, Koninginneweg, Noorder Amstelkanaal, and the Cornelis Krusemanstraat. The area is known as a high-end neighbourhood with broad streets and stately homes. Excellent specialty shops and restaurants can be found around the Cornelis Schuytstraat. 

·         Stadion neighbourhood 

The Stadion neighbourhood is situated in the borough Zuid, nearer to the A10 ring road and Station Amsterdam-Zuid with its great railway links to several other major cities and Schiphol Airport. This area is where you will find, amongst other things, the Olympic Stadium and the Schinkel islands park. The pedestrian and cyclist bridge makes it easy to visit the nearby Amsterdam Forest as well. The Stadion neighbourhood is characterised by broad streets and beautiful monumental houses, with the bonus of plenty of parking space. There are also several Dutch and international schools within the immediate vicinity (British School, International Community School).

·         Schinkel neighbourhood

The name Schinkel neighbourhood derives from the original name of the old river, the Schinkel. This neighbourhood is very popular and lies between the Hoofddorpplein neighbourhood and the more high-end Oud-Zuid in the southwestern part of the city. Especially in the summer months, the Schinkel neighbourhood is a wonderful place to live. It is spaciously laid out and the Vondelpark is nearby. If you want to live in Amsterdam and you work outside the city, the Schinkel neighbourhood is a great option. Station Amsterdam-Zuid is just a 10 minutes’ walk and it is easily accessible by tram, but, metro and train, as well as by car.

·         Museum Quarter

The Museum Quarter derives its name from the three most important and renowned museums that are situated on the Museumplein: the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Stedelijk Museum. This neighbourhood is also known as the Concertgebouw neighbourhood as the Royal Concertgebouw can be found here as well. This prestigious neighbourhood is brimming with unique and luxury boutiques, cafés and restaurants. Some people like to call the high-end shopping streets such as the Van Baerlestraat, the P.C. Hooftstraat and the Cornelis Schuytstraat Little Paris in Amsterdam.

·         Apollo neighbourhood

The Apollo neighbourhood is also called the Beethoven neighbourhood as the Beethovenstraat is the main luxury shopping street in this area. The Apollo neighbourhood is characterised by its spacious layout and the streets are named after painters, composers, and names from Ancient Greece. The Olympiaplein is one of the largest squares in the city. It has football pitches, athletic tracks, a sports area and playground for younger children. 

·         De Pijp

The ‘Old Pijp’ and the ‘New Pijp’ now form the popular neighbourhood ‘De Pijp’. Two well-known squares here are the Marie Heinekenplein and the Gerard Douplein. The Pijp is renowned for the largest and most sociable markets of Amsterdam: the Albert Cuyp market. The P.L. Takstraat and side streets are known for the ‘Workers palaces’, which were once built as housing for the labourers working in the Heineken brewery, now the Heineken Experience tourist attraction. The area is hugely coveted by singles and students, which is partly because of the many local pubs, restaurants, terraces, and specialty shops. People from abroad are now discovering De Pijp as well. And even though De Pijp is not yet as much-frequented as, for example, the Old City Centre and the Canal area, it is fast becoming visibly busier.
