Amsterdam Noord (North Amsterdam) is much more than just the NDSM-Werf and the EYE Film Institute. The ‘other side’ of the IJ is being discovered by more and more people. Amsterdam Noord is an up-and-coming area with plenty to offer. Once a barren wasteland of warehouses and shipyards, Noord is now pulsing with creative energy. After many years, Amsterdam’s Noord/Zuidlijn (North-South metro line) is up and running, providing a fast connection between Station Zuid and the new Station Noord. The popularity of North Amsterdam is still growing and the number of new construction projects shows that the area is growing rapidly.
