Amsterdam, North Holland Province
On the picturesque ancient Buiksloterdijk in Amsterdam North is our spacious apartment of 70m2 (860 sq.ft.). It is an oasis of peace and yet only 10 minutes by bike or 6 minutes by bus to Amsterdam Dam Square. It's 3 bus stops to Amsterdam Central Station, the centre of the city.

The view is beautiful. Overlooking the North Holland Canal. Known cycling and walking routes through rural North Holland and Waterland go directly past our house. Walking distance just 15 minutes to the new EYE Film Museum on the river IJ. By bike it is 7 minutes to the FREE ferry which brings you to the Central Station (2 minutes). The ferry runs day and night every 5/10 minutes. In front of the house is the Noorderpark and its indoor/outdoor swimming pool (50m).

Parking is FREE right in front of the house; the bus stop to Amsterdam Central is a few minut...

We really enjoyed our stay, nice quiet location in interesting old street yet, just a short walk down 'Snowball St.' is the very frequent bus service to the city centre. If you like windmills catch a bus the other way to Zaanse Schans.
