The Zuidas: Amsterdam Living with Benefits

Even though the Netherlands is a relatively small country, its capital has impact on the whole country. Beautiful places surrounded with a lot of green, and a business sector that is exponentially expanding. One could say it is a very impressive city. But the one aspect most impressive must be: the Zuidas.

The Project:

The Zuidas is the Financial District of the Netherlands. The biggest and strongest companies have taken hold there and very proudly planted their flags in this district. And with an investment of 10 million Euros from the Dutch government, the Zuidas has become greener and more interesting for individuals wanting to live in Amsterdam. Making it one of the fastest growing areas of the Netherlands at this moment in time.

The Commute:

The Zuidas sits very strategically in the southern part of Amsterdam. This is an amazing feature for people working in and around Amsterdam. Working in the Zuidas? Great. Step out of your apartment and walk over to your job. No better way of commuting.

Working outside of Amsterdam or have to go to the city's centre? Public transport is there for you. The train to Amsterdam's Central Station—roughly 20 minutes. Need to go to Utrecht? You are there in approximately 30 minutes. Travelling to a place inside of Amsterdam? The subway or bus will take you wherever you need to go in mere minutes.

The best part of it all: you are a mere 10-minute train ride from Schiphol Airport.

The Recreation:

The Zuidas area has the best Amsterdam has to offer. Shopping centres, restaurants, parks and, of course: unique architecture to marvel over. Do you feel like going to one of the best restaurants in the Netherlands? Visit Bolenius, a Michelin star restaurant where you will be treated like a ruler in your own kingdom with inspiring food, a great choice of exclusive wines, and an atmosphere that will make you want to live right there in the restaurant.

Feel like spending some of your hard-earned money on products of the highest quality? Find it all in the nearby shopping mall Gelderlandplein.

Simply walking around the Zuidas will give you an amazing experience: the buildings, infrastructure, and nearby parks like the Gijsbrecht van Aemstelpark, Amstelpark, Beatrixpark, or the fascinating Fun Forest Amsterdam will fill your day and relax your mind whenever you need it.

The Zuidas is a great place to live and work. It is ever growing and fascinating. If you want to feel like you are in a metropolis inside of an even bigger metropolis, the Zuidas is definitely the place for you.
