This is the place to be!
Sure, we’re a little biased at Makelaar Bert, since our office is right in the middle of Oud-West. But that’s for a good reason: it’s such a pleasant neighbourhood, just off the city center, yet everything is super accessible by bike. And you don’t even need to venture beyond Oud-West – it has everything you’re looking for!
Whether you want to grab a bite, relax or shop, you never have to search far in oud-west.
See and taste a lot
Right across to the always-lively Kinkerstraat is the Ten Katemarkt. In addition to numerous local supermarkets and specialty stores, you can visit this market daily for fresh vegetables, Vietnamese street food and specialty delicacies. After a round at the market, step into De Hallen. Since the former tram depot closed in 2015, it has been transformed into a gathering place for creative entrepreneurs. Visit the arthouse cinema and then grab a bite to eat at the Foodhallen. Here, you can sample food from all over the world.
‘The Jan Pieter Heijestraat is great. Not only because you’ll find the coolest real estate agency in the Netherlands here, but also because of the nice shops and delicious food. Perfect for our lunch.’Heleen, Makelaar Bert
A trip around the world
Don’t feel like cooking? The neighbourhood is bursting with restaurants offering cuisine from all over the world. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or a culinary experience, there’s plenty to choose from. Oud-West is a beautiful, diverse neighbourhood with stunning buildings, canals, lush greenery and various shops. But unlike the city centre, it’s not crowded with tourists.
The Overtoom also has a lot to offer, from furniture stores to gyms and restaurants. This street runs from Surinameplein to Leidseplein and is parallel to Vondelpark – Amsterdam’s central park. Whether it’s winter, spring, summer or autumn, it’s vibrant here all year round. Walk your dog, go for a run, play sports or spend a relaxing afternoon by the water.
‘Is Oud-West also something for you? I would be happy to help you purchase a home.’
