All neighborhoods

Bos en Lommer is a multicultural neighbourhood in which everyone immediately feels at home.


It’s hard to believe, but years ago, Bos en Lommer was considered to be a ‘disadvantaged’ neighbourhood. Quite a lot has changed since then. Amsterdam continuously grows and develops, and more and more young couples and families are finding their home here. This has greatly transformed the neighbourhood in recent years. You’ll find an increasing number of trendy coffee houses, restaurants and specialty stores. But fortunately, the Moroccan supermarket and Turkish bakery are still there too.

‘Bos en Lommer is a delightful neighbourhood with cosy terraces, shops, plenty of greenery and the most delicious baklava!’
