What does Amstelveen have to offer?
We mentioned previously that Amstelveen is a particularly green city. If you are a busy professional, it is lovely to live close to idyllic parks and pleasant woodlands. Letting your hair down on the beach is no problem either, you can be there in no time. Amstelveen is an ideal place to live in respect of work, going out, or shopping, but Amsterdam and other large cities are close by.
Amstelveen’s shopping centre is very modern. In addition to large retail chains, the city centre offers wonderful little boutiques, a large central library, cultural amenities, catering outlets and offices. The shopping area is the largest in the region south of Amsterdam.
As with many large cities, Amstelveen is a melting pot of cultures. Interestingly, the Japanese are the largest population group after the Dutch. Many expats live in Amstelveen because of the central location in relation to a number of large international offices. In addition to Japanese, there are also many Chinese and Indians. These demographics are also reflected in the shopping district where authentic Japanese shops bring colour and vibrancy to the shopping centre.
Something special about Amstelveen
There is certainly something special about Amstelveen. The city produces international stars. In the entertainment industry, we have successful DJ Martin Garrix and actors Famke Janssen and Michiel Huisman who now work in America. The pride of Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam is showcased in the Cobra Museum: featuring key works by artists of the CoBrA movement.
