Living in Amstelveen

A Tram Ride to the Suburbs

If you’re considering making the move to Amsterdam, but you’d like to live somewhere a little further from the centre, then the lively and pleasant city of A​mstelveen may be your best bet.

Located a mere 30 minutes from Amsterdam’s Centraal Station via tram, Amstelveen is the second greenest city in the Netherlands. The nearby Amsterdam Forest is the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Popular with hikers, climbers, cyclists, and watersport enthusiasts, this sprawling green area is Amsterdam’s largest park.

Set on the picturesque Amstel river, r​enting in Amstelveen​is perfect if you crave some peace and quiet after a busy day of work in the city.

That’s not to say that there isn’t more to it than just green space. It also has its fair share of art and culture, including the Cobra Museum of Modern Art, which exhibits work by the avant‐garde Cobra movement. Or, if you’d rather take in a film or a show, the Schouwburg offers a varied programme of live music, cinema and theatre. And foodies will be thrilled to learn that Amstelveen is home to the Michelin‐starred Aan de Poel restaurant, which serves up mouthwatering French cuisine to be enjoyed on the terrace overlooking the lake de Poel.

Those of you with young families will feel comfortable knowing that the International School of Amsterdam is based in Amstelveen. The school’s official language, and language of instruction, is English, with Dutch, German, Spanish, French, Mandarin, and Japanese offered as additional languages.
