  • the westerpark is truly a haven of peace, you forget sometimes almost that you are in Amsterdam. It is a nice park for walking, but also for a picnic or yoga session there are countless places to find. In addition, there are all kinds of old, often restored buildings on site, where you will find restaurants, cafes, studios and offices. the westerpark is a fine place to spend a few hours take it easy, if you want to escape the busy centre. (just keep in mind that more people think so)

  • I had lived near this park and have been to many parks in Netherlands for the last 3 years. I would say that this is the best park in Netherlands. so cozy and peaceful :)! when its sunny, grab some beer with snacks and seat somewhere in the park. You will miss the moments a lot in the future!
  • Nice city park for a stroll. There are regularly interesting cultural events and market just outside of it. So you can go and relax in the park afterwards.
  • Hipster AF. Lots of restaurants, good for drinking or a burger, but don't go for a nice dinner because the quality for the prices is awful. Besides that, there are wonderful areas to lounge in the greenery, pick up a cone of ice cream, or people-watch. There is an interesting mix of wealthy and poor, well-dressed, and cracked-out people here. Overall enjoyable.
  • Every first Sunday of the month there is a market on the terrain of the Wester Gasfabriek. where they sell mainly home made products and delicious food. On the terrain is also the Troost Brewery where they sell a variety of excellent beers.
  • Fantastic little spot just with the city. Peaceful surroundings and extensive parkland. The use of the old gas works and tram terminals is a great way to rejuvenate the area and means there's lots to explore
