Plantage aan het Water

Plantage aan het Water: an Amsterdam tourist centre with everything to offer Plantage aan het Water covers an area of Amsterdam surrounded at four corners by NEMO, Molen de Goyer, the Tropenmuseum and the Jewish Historical Museum. Its borders are formed by the southern shore of the IJ, the Amstel and the railway dyke. This unique area is typified by its luscious greenery, space and water. Besides natural history, the area is a mine of information for science and technology and the origins of this part of the city. 

A poster campaign is currently promoting the Plantage as Amsterdam's new tourist district. This objective is supported in the city's present economic and tourist policy. It is designed to spread tourism more evenly in the inner city, and so to enable more people to enjoy the city's cultural heritage. The aim is to reinforce the centrality of the eastern part of the inner city. It is a policy that lies at the heart of the municipality's major IJ project, the construction of which is currently evident throughout Amsterdam, including Central Station. 

The aim is to restore the city's link with the IJ, which was severed in the nineteenth century with the advent of the railway and Central Station. It takes only a little creative fantasy to see that Amsterdam, after three and a half centuries is finally fulfilling city architect Hendrik Jacobsz. Staets's Golden Age vision of expanding the city centre to the east.
