More information

MVA neighbourhood information: Grachtengordel-Zuid

Area south is an area where you can reside, work or relax. A remarkable fact is that more people are working is this area rather than living there. Alongside the Grachtengordel you can find several big offices, but also residences. Area South is well known for its cultural facilities. Leidseplein and Rembrandsplein are examples of parts within the southern area which are internationally well-known outgoing plazas. In the upcoming years big renovations are planned within the area, for example the renovation of Leidseplein and the transfer of the new metrostation Vijzelgracht.

Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city, the capital of the Netherlands, and the nation's financial, business, cultural and commercial capital as well. Since its founding in the 12th century, Amsterdam has evolved from a small fishing village into one of the most important ports in the world during the Dutch Golden Age. Museums like the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh and the Stedelijk also give Amsterdam serious cultural credibility. Amsterdam's compact size, cycling lifestyle, diverse population (more than 170 nationalities), English-speaking natives, abundance of green space, reliable public transportation system and central location within Europe mean it's not only a great place to visit, but also a great place to live.
