Westerpark

Vibrant atmosphere against a green backdrop

Adjacent to the centre lies the lively Westerpark neighbourhood, part of Amsterdam West. Home to the eponymous park, which combines expansive greenery with the Westergasfabriek's wealth of cultural goings on, this lively neighbourhood is home to a varied mix of independent shops, old-school street markets, shiny new restaurants and traditional brown cafés.
