The North area of Amsterdam is one of the best values for housing. While it is more difficult to get to, with the ferry or bus being the easiest options, it is a quiet area with numerous parks. The EYE museum and an influx of families has made the North much more desirable recently.
IJplein en Vogelbuurt
IJplein en Vogelbuurt is a quiet area. It has it owns character, and is quite different from all the other areas in Amsterdam. To begin with, the only way to reach it is via the ferry (until midnight) from the Central Station or by tunnel (cars only). So, if you’re a pedestrian or a biker, you might use the ferry or get a bus. Amsterdam North is filled with parks, and has the best value for price. Due to these traits, Amsterdam North has drawn many families over the past few years. It’s where the EYE film museum is and where you can get one the best views towards the city.
