Living in Oud-Zuid

Oud-Zuid is a neighbourhood with allure: its museums, upscale shops, and high-quality restaurants leave a lasting impression.

All neighborhoods

Elegant and stylish

Judging by the abundance of stately buildings, it’s no surprise that Oud-Zuid is considered the most sophisticated neighbourhood in Amsterdam. Here, you can stroll through the most beautiful, fairy-tale-like streets with luxurious residences.

The highlight of oud-zuid? Undoubtedly the museumplein.

At the heart of the neighbourhood lies the Museumplein, a venue for both large and small spectacles. It hosts inaugurations, holidays, football matches and demonstrations. As the name suggests, the square – which feels more like a park – is surrounded by museums. The grand Rijksmuseum is located at the head of the square, and on the side, you’ll find the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum, and the world-famous Concertgebouw classical music hall.
