An Expat’s Quick Guide to Oud‐West

Find Out Why ​Living in Oud‐West ​Could Be Right For You

A hugely diverse, child‐friendly, and popular neighbourhood, Oud‐West ​is in a sense the beating heart of Amsterdam.

With Vondelpark and Rembrandtpark closeby, and the wonderful, yet somewhat hidden,Ten Katestraat market, residents can spend hours wandering its streets and green spaces.

Oud‐West is as multicultural as it comes, but with a terrific level of integration. In recent years more and more families and young professionals have settled here. It’s a clean and caring community; you won’t find much in the way of litter, and you’d be hard pushed to feel safer anywhere else in the city.

Most of the housing in Oud‐West has been renovated into smaller apartments, which are attractive to expats renting in Amsterdam due to the location and general affordability.

What will strike you most living in Oud‐West is just how relaxed it feels. While still full to the brim with culture, restaurants, and nightlife, it’s certainly not as touristy as other parts of the city. You’ll really be able to embrace the life of a true Amsterdammer if you set up base here.
