Nieuw-West

Built during an expansion of Amsterdam’s western neighbourhoods in the 1950s, Nieuw-West is now known for its green expanses and lakeside tranquillity. Hidden amongst the sprawl, new structures bring fresh innovation and social soul to the area, bordered by the beautiful Sloterplas Lake and Rembrandt Park. It’s a peaceful green oasis that hosts some of the city’s leading sports events, vibrant nightlife and music festivals. The area is easily accessible from anywhere in the city by Lelylaan train station, bus, tram and Metro lines.
