NDSM is the historical remainder of the largest shipyard in Amsterdam, now developing itself into a creative city at the north bank of the IJ river. Where dozens of famous ships and supertankers slid off-ramp in the twentieth century, events such as Over het IJ Festival, Valtifest, Amsterdam Water Festival and NDSM Vrijhaven are hosted today as well as monumental art in public space.NDSM is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , world travel planner Edition.
In the massive NDSM hangar, artists are working in the Kunststad (Art City), the largest breeding site in the Netherlands. In ancient workshops (IJkantine) and new temporary buildings (Noorderlicht, Pllek) you can eat, drink and party at the river bank, enjoying the best view of Amsterdam.
National Historic Landmarks such as the Timmerwerkplaats (Carpentry Workshop) and the Smederij (Blacksmith) are transformed into trendy offices by top architects and host MTV, Red Bull and IDTV among others. Where buildings were demolished, new offices arose (hosting HEMA, VNU Media and Rough Cookie for example).
