Why locals love it

Nieuwendammerdijk and Schellingwouderdijk are streets in the neighborhood 'Noord'. They were built as dikes and among the first streets of Noord to be inhabited. For some locals, living on these streets is like living in paradise. Detached old houses with space to have kids. Outside the crowded city, but still minutes away.

Why you should visit it

Noord is skipped in almost all tourist maps. Yes, there are not many tourists attractions, but that's just what we want, right? The streets are built on a dike, which gives most of the houses a great view or at least a heavenly place for a summer picnic. Biking through this street will show you how great neighbors can live together.

Special tip

A nice bike route of one hour is added to the pictures here. It takes you through Noord, via the bridge back to Oost and the centre. Have fun.

Much to see and to do, if you love diversity.

I lived in North for 7,5 years. We wanted to stay but found a better house in new-west. Also nice to live there. But north is like a small village with a lot of green. And many upcoming new spots. The area is always in my heart. And for the tourist a nice way to get out of the city for a while.
