Nieuw-West

Lakeside tranquility with vibrant nightlife

Built during an expansion of Amsterdam’s western neighbourhoods in the 1950s, Nieuw-West borders the Sloterplas lake and the park surrounding it. It’s a peaceful green oasis that also hosts some of the city’s leading sports events and music festivals. The area is easy accessible from anywhere in the city by Lelylaan train station, bus, tram and Metro lines.
