Oost & Watergraafsmeer

" In Oost you'll find Turkish bakeries and grocery stores next door to hipster coffee bars. Trendy and exotic blend perfectly here. "

Joan de Haart, our local from time to momo Amsterdam

In Oost (East) you'll find the Indische Buurt, where street names and the Tropenmuseum recall a colonial past. Its residents can go food shopping at inexpensive Turkish grocery stores, then sip espresso at a hipster coffee bar next door. Watergraafsmeer ​​​is an elegant neighborhood, with broad streets, stately homes from the 1930s, and the secluded Frankendael park. Hip and happening Oosterpark in Oost is where different cultures come together. Its monuments recall a turbulent history of slavery, as well as recent events, such as the murder of Dutch film director Theo van Gogh in 2004. The Plantagebuurt is defined by its rich Jewish history.
