The Rivierenbuurt in Amsterdam
The area around the Rudolf Hartplein is called Duivelseiland where you can find upmarket shops, restaurants and pleasant apartment blocks. The area between the Vondelpark and De Lairessestraat offers similar housing, but proximity to the park makes this area extremely desirable. If you like a very quiet, residential area with clean streets and large apartments, consider the Componistenbuurt and Rivierenbuurt.
Close to the Zuidas
The Zuid As (South Axes) is the new downtown for business people, located in the South between the Southern Amstel and the Rivierenbuurt with access to the highway A10. In the next years high-tech offices, 9,000 apartments and all kind of restaurants/cafes will arise!
