Amsterdam-Centrum is the inner-most borough and historical city centre of Amsterdam, containing the majority of the city's landmarks. Established in 2002, Amsterdam-Centrum was the last area in the city to be granted the status of self-governing borough. The borough is only 8.04 km2 large and covers the old innercity and the UNESCO-listed Amsterdam canal belt. In 2013, the borough had approximately 85,000 inhabitants, who on average had the second-highest income per household in the city and one of the highest in the country.Neighborhoods of Amsterdam-Centrum de Oude Zijde de Nieuwe Zijde Nieuwmarkt Grachtengordel Westelijke Eilanden Haarlemmerbuurt de Jordaan Plantage Oostelijke EilandenBorough governmentUntil 2014, the Amsterdam boroughs, called stadsdelen or 'districts', were governed by a directly elected district council (deelraad) as well as a separate district executive board, the members of which were appointed and controlled by the council. Since the 2014 municipal elections, the district councils have been abolished and replaced by smaller, but still directly elected district committees (bestuurscommissies). The district committees are elected every four years, on the same day as the city's central municipal council. Each district committee elects three of its members to form an executive committee (dagelijks bestuur). The district committees' jurisdiction is determined by the central municipal council. Responsibilities delegated to the 2014-2018 district committees include parks and recreation, streets and squares, refuse collection, permits and events, preparation of zoning plans, passports and drivers licenses, and welfare work.Add The VR Room to your Amsterdam travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Amsterdam attractions planner.
The VR Room reviews
Nice staff but other than that seems like an amateur operation. Not in the level of competing options in Amsterdam. *I didn't actually play because we came as a group and their multi-player option didn't work.
We had a great time here! We turned up without a booking, just to try our luck as we happened to be in the area. We were warmly received and are so happy we got to have this experience. This isn't like other VR cafes and its all the better for it! The room is private, spacious yet cosy and we got to try a variety of games. We don't speak Dutch unfortunately, but our host spoke perfect English and nothing got lost in translation. It was awesome, highly recommend it - fantastic.
