Oost

Hip places, green spaces and diverse faces

Ethnically diverse and strikingly spacious, Amsterdam East (Oost) is known for its wide streets lined by monumental 19th-century buildings, as well as its vibrant cultural mix. With plenty of opportunities for shopping, eating and drinking, the area boasts an exciting selection of trendy clubs, traditional Turkish bakeries, Surinamese supermarkets and Middle Eastern lunchrooms as well, of course, as the beautiful Oosterpark and the majestic Tropenmuseum.
