Dining • Artsy • Museums
Museums are the heartbeat of the Zuid district, with works ranging from greats like Van Gogh to contemporary disruptors like Banksy, as are the cozy wine bars that invite you to sip back and relax at their evening tastings. This picturesque neighborhood might tempt you to stop and admire your surroundings, but keep moving. Immerse yourself in the total experience as there are plenty of upscale shops and diverse restaurants to dig into. Meanwhile, art deco architecture, art museums and upscale shopping make Oud-Zuid one of the poshest neighborhoods of Amsterdam, and the area is walkable enough for comfortable exploration. Residents enjoy kicking back at the many wine bars bordering the popular green space known as Vondelpark or slipping into a cozy "brown cafe" for a pint.
