If you are planning a trip to Amsterdam with your loved one and want to experience a bit of style and elegance in arguably the best neighbourhood of Amsterdam, then this apartment is perfect for you. Located central to the historic Jordan and the vibrant centre, the apartment has recently been refurbished with an eye for style and comfort.
You will have access to the full 65m2 apartment. The apartment is on the first floor which gives you a unique view and natural light, with amazing views! over the Lijnbaansgracht (canal).
Located at the heart of the trendy Jordaan district, with its eclectic collection of boutiques, cafes, and restaurants, this apartment is a perfect base to explore and enjoy the city. The Negen Straatjes, home to many of Amsterdam's exciting smaller boutiques, are just a short walk away. The Anne Frank house and the beautiful old Amsterdam Harbor islands (Bickersisland/Prinsenisland) are within a 5 minute walk away, as well the Dam Square and its Palace (10 minutes). Visit the charming Lindengracht food market or the farmers' market on the Noordermarkt on a Saturday, both around the corner. A twenty minute stroll away or only ten minutes by tram are the beautiful Vondelpark and the Museumplein, home to the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art and of course the Rijksmuseum, where you'll find Rembrandts masterpiece, the "Night Watch".
The best way to get to the apartment:
From Schiphol Airport to Central Station by train:
- Once you have cleared customs and still in the airport, follow the signs to the train station, which is located underground of a big hall with high ceiling. Don’t forget first to buy the train tickets (the machines are yellow and next to the escalators – ask help if you need any assistance);
- From this hall, go down the escalators to the railway, but first find out on the boards above the escalators which train will take you to Central Station (Amsterdam Central or Amsterdam CS). The trip will take about 15 minutes if you take the fast train.

For people who love beer:
Tripel bar and
Brewery ’t IJ is is now one of the largest beer breweries in Amsterdam! You can try their specialty beers at a so called proeflokaal (tasting room) with sunny terrace. And what you find on the tap changes regularly. Beer brewery ‘t IJ also brews beers in collaboration with other national and international breweries! Soon we can taste the result of the collaboration with the British brewery Thor Bridge.
For people who love wine:
With the idea of delicatessen bar Envy in mind, owner Bert van der Leden has created a new concept and Envy has a 'sister': Vyne. Whereas in Envy the central theme is the delicatessen, in Vyne the wines take centre stage.
In recent years the demand, interest and enthusiasm for the product wine has steadily increased. The catering industry, however, has not responded to this trend as well as it could. Meantime, in cafés where a beer can be served to perfection, the wine - if it is of good quality - is spoiled by use of the wrong glasswork or by being served at the wrong temperature. The choice of wine in general is very limited, and if offered at all, the advice given is incorrect due to lack of knowledge on the part of the personnel. It's high time for... Vyne!
Vyne has the atmosphere of a 'brown café', but then more suited to modern times. Where normally beer is the central theme, in Vyne it's all about wine. The traditional bitterball-type of snacks have been replaced by dishes of the same size, but of very high quality and originality prepared by the chefs of "big sister" Envy. Vyne is working together with the celebrated wine importer Vinites.
The renowned firm of architects Concrete has again been retained, this time to provide the designs for Vyne. Vyne comprises of two parts. On the right-hand side, the 'brown café', with oak floor, walls and ceiling and a long brown leather couch against the wall. This room is reminiscent of the classic French wines, the oak boards serving to give the impression that one is sitting in a wine vat. The left-hand side serves as a wine library, an entire wall of stainless steel parts completely full of wine bottles. The clinical look melds well with new wines from Chili, Africa en Australia; new wines that are often produced using modern technology. Long bar tables adorn the centre, providing a cosy, Burgundian and lively atmosphere and offering places for around 100 people. Vyne also offers a peek in the kitchen, which has a ‘chefs table’ where tastings can be held.
Vyne is located at Prinsengracht 411, close to the Westertoren in Amsterdam.
