“Architecture and waterscapes of high quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

I live in the Eastern Docklands and am still enjoying every minute there. Particularly Java & KNSM islands have been redeveloped with surprising and high quality buildings (check out 'Barcelona' and the 'Whale') and offer wondeful views over the water. The view from the top of Java Island and the Jan Schaefer bridge is of exceptional quality; come here with sunset for full effect. The Oostelijke Handelskade and other areas beyond (Borneo Island, Sporenburg) complement with a mixture of modern architecture and some old remainders of the maritime past (the Lloyd Hotel etc). After spending some 2 hours walking here you could try to cross the Schellingwouderbrug (some 1,5 km away) to check out the contract with the quiet polder landscape of Waterland or you could go across the Jan Schaeferbrug towards Artis and the Plantage area for a nice contract with 19th century architecture.
