The Westerpark and Westergas
Peaceful and cozy area
All in one Hotspot
The popular Westerpark area in Amsterdam is really a great all-in-one hotspot. It has a lot of nice breakfast and lunch spots, trendy pubs, bars and restaurants, located in and around the former ‘Westergasfabriek’ (Gas factory) area from the 19th century.
Nowadays a lot of cultural activities take place after the factory was abandoned in 1990. Places to go are; Pacific Parc, great for the weekends to have drink a and some dancing. De Bakkerswinkel is perfect for a relaxed breakfast or brunch with their delicious and addictive scones. A good dinnerspot is Raïnaraï. They serve Algerian delicacies, served at the romantic campfire.
In this neighborhood also lies a unique and beautiful urban park. During the summer it is a great spot for leisurely picnics, in the winter a great spot for relaxed walks in the natural surroundings.
Amongst the trees and ponds you can also discovered the figurative sculptures of Westerpark; a collection of commissioned artworks by a variety of different artists that make it a truly unique place.
