Buurt en omgeving
On the edge of the centre you will find one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant districts of Amsterdam. Welcome to de Pijp.
de Pijp as we Amsterdammers know it today is without doubt a melting pot of cultures and nationalities. Thanks to previous settlers such as Heijermans, De Haan, Bordewijk, Mondriaan and scores of students in search of a cheap room to rent, de Pijp continues to breathe life as the lively bohemian district known as the Quartier Latin (Latin Quarter) in Paris. The young, old, students, artists, and families have all chosen to make de Pijp their home, and far removed from the hustle and bustle of central Amsterdam, this homely alternative is appealing. Today, de Pijp is so popular that house prices have gone up an astonishing 350%!
