A wonderful place for holidays! The location is suitable for having a city-trip (you can be easiliy and fast in the centrum of Amsterdam) AND for having a relaxed time on a beautiful river. For us, it was the perfect combination.Vivien reviewed Houseboat on Amstel river in Watergraafsmeer
The district of Watergraafsmeer in Amsterdam is a very special place for a number of reasons. It is a fine example of Dutch style, architecture and culture; however, the area is particularly special due to the land it lies on. The entire district lies on a polder – an area of land that has been reclaimed from the sea. Until 1921, the area was actually a rural community on the outskirts of the Dutch capital, but it is now considered to be a fully-fledged area of Amsterdam. Replete with stunning examples of architecture, Dutch culture and history, the best way to get a real feel for the area is by staying in a holiday apartment in Watergraafsmeer booked through the 9flats website.
Luxurious and Secluded Holiday Apartments in Watergraafsmeer
Watergraafsmeer is mainly a residential area, and it provides a relatively laid-back way of life that is in stark contrast to the rest of Amsterdam. The area is filled with picturesque parks, and many of the residential properties have their own gardens. This pretty scenery is further enhanced by the Amstel River and the Ringvaart Canal which enclose the district and give it an element of protection from the noise and bright lights of the city’s centre. The city’s new Science Park is being developed close by, but it certainly doesn’t spoil what is a beautiful part of Amsterdam. Watergraafsmeer is the perfect place to stay if you’re visiting the city with a young family, and a holiday apartment in Amsterdam from 9flats will supply all the luxury and privacy you need to enhance your stay.
Holiday Accommodation in Watergraafsmeer Provides a Way of Immersing Yourself in Local Life
Watergraafsmeer is the lowest point of Amsterdam, and perhaps that is one of the reasons why life happens at its own pace in this pretty part of the city. Basketball courts and five-a-side football pitches play host to friendly games amongst residents, and small cafes are filled with people sipping coffee and gleefully wasting their own time. Also located in the area is the city’s largest cemetery and the Jaap Edenbaan skating rink. There is no doubting that this area of Amsterdam has an atmosphere and sense of community all of its own and you will find it very hard to capture its essence by basing yourself in a local hotel. However, renting nearby holiday accommodation in Zaanstad will mean you can live side-by-side with the locals – the best way to immerse yourself in local customs and traditions.
There is absolutely no doubt that couchsurfing in Watergraafsmeer is a fantastic way of living amongst local people in their own community. However, booking your accommodation with 9flats adds the element of luxury to your travel, as well as the opportunity to have a holiday residence all to yourself.
