There's always something going on at Westergasfabriek, the buzzing creative complex at Westerpark. Once the city's gasworks, this collection of former industrial buildings is now one of Amsterdam's most exciting and vibrant creative hubs, and home to a variety of bars, restaurants and entertainment venues.

Cultural hub in Amsterdam West 

This complex of late 19th century industrial buildings in Westerpark was once the city’s gasworks, but after a complete redevelopment in 2003 it re-opened as a cultural complex, housing a selection of independent shops, galleries, trendy restaurants and interesting venues.  The complex hosts a busy schedule of exhibitions, food markets, festivals and cultural events, so you’ll always find something new to discover.
