Amsterdam Noord Read more from page 40 Laid back waterside hangouts, interesting industrial street art, creative start-ups: Amsterdam Noord is booming for a reason. Although just a short and free ferry trip away, the northern part of the city has a very different vibe than the nearby city centre, boasting vast green expanses alongside charming little villages, all combined with industrial-looking areas with beautiful terraces and fine restaurants and cafés. The adjacent NDSM Wharf – a former shipyard – is an extension of Amsterdam Noord and located on the banks of the River IJ. It has grown into an enormously popular cultural hotspot in recent years by being the backdrop for cool festivals and cultural initiatives such as openair cinemas and food truck festivals. If you are looking to get away from the tourist crowds and have a cold drink among the locals while overlooking the scenic IJ River, head north.
