Zuidoost

Cultural melting pot and large-scale entertainment

Zuidoost (South East) includes the residential area De Bijlmer as well as the big-entertainment world of the Johan Cruijff ArenA, AFAS Live and the Ziggo Dome, plus numerous gleaming office buildings. It’s about as far away as you can get from your typical canals-and-clogs image of Amsterdam, but with around 100,000 residents from more than 150 ethnic backgrounds, it is a side of Amsterdam that shouldn't be overlooked.
