A family home: convenient, comfy, and designed for the whole family
Amsterdam is such a bubbly and beautiful city. The apartment is located in the center of Amsterdam in a neighborhood with a lot of water. Many come to live here in relative quiet while still enjoying the advantages of being so close to the inner city.
Children can take full advantage of Artis Zoo, Science center NEMO and the Oosterpark. Culture hounds are well-served at the Muziektheater, the acclaimed Hermitage museum Amsterdam or visiting the Jewish quarter. Film lovers will enjoy the student-run Kriterion Cinema, Studio K or the architectural stunning EYE film institute just a little bike and boat ride away. Being very central, one has access to all the options of the Old Centre. However, although I love a stroll along the canals, for other purposes I prefer the less mainstream touristic options in the direct neighbourhood. For instance the Berlin style city beach club called Roest, my favorite place for lunch or coffee Helena Primakoff, the local beer brewery Brouwerij 't IJ and the local market.
A hidden gem: the open square adjacent to Artis (Artisplein) where kids can run in the fountain during the day and you can sit and chat in the evening.
