Description

Architectural
renewal

Discover modern architecture of Amsterdam in the old docks located just east of the Central Station!

These residential districts completed in 2003 are unique for their urban mixity in both architectural and social terms. This neighbourhood is typical of what could be called the "Dutch Touch", combining Germanic simplicity and Latin lyrism.

A local architect will guide you through the district that is today taken for example throughout the world.

The four golden rules of a good cyclist

Rule 1
1/ Respect the traffic rules
and turn on the lights!

Even if everyone does not...

Rule 2
2/ use your hands before turning

Let other know where you are going,
take a look behind you before turning

Rule 3
3/ Respect the pedestrians
and the other cyclists

Do not stay in the middle of sidewalks
and pay attention to the rings!

Rule 4
4/ Hold your right

Ne restez pas au milieu des voies de circulation,
et restez les uns derrière les autres,
en file indienne
