Where is it?
Oud-West has that great mix of cultures and economic levels which makes it a vibrant neighborhood. It’s fun to explore the posh streets near Vondelpark and the ethnic grocers on De Clercqstraat and Kinkerstraat. You’ll find lots of students and young creative people in this area, as well as families with small children.
Wander through the neighborhood streets and along the wide canals. Most of the buildings in Oud-West were constructed in the first half of the twentieth century. Some streets are really lovely with interesting details on the buildings. The streets near Vondelpark are filled with impressive 19th century houses while at the end of Jacob van Lennepkade are great apartments with all kinds of animal heads in the entryways. Cool!
Oud-West is full of excellent restaurants, cafes and bars. If you’re craving pizza, coffee, burritos or beer you can find it all in the neighborhood.
With its location close to the city center, Vondelpark is much busier. On a warm day Vondelpark is packed with tourists and locals enjoying the sunshine with picnics and parties. It’s a great place to people watch! There are also a few great cafes in Vondelpark including the Vondelpark3, Blauwe Theehuis and Vondeltuin. And check out the Vondelpark Open Air Theater in the summertime.
One of the most well-known streets in Oud-West is Kinkerstraat. This relatively short street is filled with businesses, making it easy to get errands done. On Kinkerstraat you can find HEMA, Blokker, Albert Heijn, Xenos, and Etos as well as ones of the best stores on the street: Volkskruidentuin. This small shop sells all manner of herbs and spices along with some Asian and Middle Eastern ingredients.
Of course in Amsterdam the preferred mode of transport is always the bicycle but it is easy to reach Oud-West by tram or on foot. Tramlines 1, 3, 7, 12, 13, 14, and 17 all service the area. If you need the Metro or NS Trains Amsterdam Lelylaan Station is close by.
