Walking Tours in Amsterdam East

Explore the beautiful residential Amsterdam East with our Walking Tours. It should not be regarded as a homogeneous area, as there are many different neighborhoods with their own culture and identity. From the areas with modern architecture like The Eastern Docklands and IJburg to the ethnically diverse Indian neighborhood and the areas with wide streets, parks and beautiful 19th-century buildings.

Explore the Transvaalbuurt

📐 4 km⏱️ Total Walking Time: 43 min 🍴 Calories: 230

Welcome to Transvaalbuurt, a neighborhood with a rich and complex history of change and upheaval. Transvaalbuurt was annexed by Amsterdam (1896) and planned and developed by Berlage in the early 1900s. The streets were named after places and people in the former Boer Republic (South Africa). As you walk through the neighborhood, enjoy the examples of affordable worker’s housing built in the Amsterdam School style.

Explore the architecture in Oostelijk Havengebied

📐 6 km⏱️ Total Walking Time: 60 min 🍴 Calories: 320

This route through the Oostelijk Havengebied (the Eastern Docklands), shows off some of the finest and quirkiest of Amsterdam’s architectural landmarks: the perfect place to see Dutch urban design come to life. The area’s been in a state of rapid change since it’s initial construction in the 19th century. Disuse in the 1970s led to many of the buildings in the docklands being destroyed, but thankfully, as artists and squatters moved in, many of the iconic spaces were saved. In the 1990s, the city of Amsterdam massively regenerated the area for residential use.
