What You'll Do
  • Explore the Eastern Docklands' superb modern architecture integrated into an historic setting
  • Learn about the cutting-edge concepts in waterfront development
  • Compare the twin islands of Java and KNSM
  • Discover Riet Landen's incredible juxtaposition of park, residential area, and traffic junction
Overview
Explore Amsterdam's compelling Eastern Docklands area with an expert guide. This 2 to 3-hour private tour examines the former harbor's innovative urban development through 5 fascinating districts: Java, KNSM, Borneo, Sporenburg, and Riet Landen.
What to Expect
Since the 70's, Amsterdam's Eastern Docklands has grown from a humble harbor into a popular residential area sporting a diverse and dazzling array of architecture. It is here where Amsterdam's urban development prospered throughout the 80's and 90's, entering the new millennium with a striking urban waterfront integrated into the area's industrial heritage.

Visiting the twin islands of Java and KNSM will bring to the fore 2 sites united by a single concept – inspired by the city's rich history – yet the startling differences between both outcomes is impossible to miss.

Discover how Borneo and Sporenburg succeeded in providing low-rise single-family houses within the same density (100 apartments per acre) usually marked by multi-storey building complexes. Then see how Riet Landen so brilliantly entwined the traffic junction at its heart with the remarkable park that envelops it.

Focusing on Amsterdam's history of urban development, two have recently published a book on the subject, Ontdek het Oostelijk Havengebied, currently being translated into English, and the others also work as architecture and heritage journalists.
