Where water meets modern architecture. The Oostelijke Eilanden (Eastern Docklands) area mixes maritime heritage with thriving urban renewal. The Maritime Museum recalls the sea pioneers of the past, whilst historic warehouses have been repurposed into contemporary venues. Here you'll find a thriving food and drink scene and various cultural offerings including the Marineterrein, teeming with bars and breweries, Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ, the temple of modern jazz music and Mezrab, a hotspot for spoken-word and storytelling.
