Oostelijke Eilanden

Where water and modern architecture meet

Surrounded by glistening water on all sides, the Oostelijke Eilanden (Eastern Docklands) are a delight to behold. As the Scheepvaartmuseum recalls the sea pioneers of the past, their adventurous spirits seem to live on in its original modern architecture and historic warehouses repurposed into contemporary hotspots.
