An Expat’s Quick Guide to Oud‐Zuid

Looking to ​Rent in Oud‐Zuid?​ Read this first...

The borough of Oud‐Zuid ​isn’t even 20 years old, having been formed in 1998 with the merging of Zuid and De Pijp, but it’s already one of the most fashionable and desirable places to live in Amsterdam.

If you fancy yourself a bit of a culture vulture, then calling Oud‐Zuid home is akin to living near the Louvre. With the fabulous Rijksmuseum housing paintings by the likes of Van Gogh and Rembrandt, this part of the city is a beacon for art lovers the world over.

It also boasts the so‐called “green lung” of the city, Vondelpark, where tourists and residents alike swarm the moment the sun starts to shine. You also have the option of a quick trip to Amsterdam Forest, which is only 4km away, for even more green space.

For young families, renting in Oud‐Zuid is just perfect. With some of the city’s most highly rated schools, and a number of beautiful parks and well‐maintained swimming pools, there’s no shortage of benefits to raising your children in this part of Amsterdam.


And when it comes to food, drink, and nightlife, Oud‐Zuid is positively buzzing. Do as the locals do and visit Vondelpark frequently, or enjoy a few drinks in one of the more traditional ‘brown cafes’, dimly lit cosy establishments brimming with Dutch character.
