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.
