Tagarchief: Utrechtsestraat

In the heart of the centre of Amsterdam lies Utrechtsestraat, linking Rembrandtplein with Frederiksplein. The street was built in 1658, during the expansion of the city. It is named after the city of Utrecht.  In 1877 a horse-drawn tram began service along Utrechtsestraat, being replaced by an electric tram in 1904 (running the same service as line 4 for the last couple of decades). The street is characterized by shops, bars and restaurants. From bookshops to design, kitchen utensils to record store Concerto. The bars and restaurants are of high quality and are very affordable. The best ones are  listed here.
Amstelveld, with its famous Amstel church, is around the corner from Prinsengracht. The wooden church building was designed by Daniël Stalpaert and was built between 1668 and 1670. There is  a plants- and flower market every Monday and Amstelveld hosts an antiques market once a month.
Café Nel in the Amstel church has a beautiful outdoor terrace in the middle of Amstelveld.

Midden in het centrum van Amsterdam ligt de Utrechtsestraat, die het Rembrandtplein met het Frederiksplein verbindt. Bij de grote stadsuitbreiding van 1658 werd de straat aangelegd en vernoemd naar de stad Utrecht. Vanaf 1877 reed de paardentram door de Utrechtsestraat en sinds 1904 de elektrische tram (de laatste decennia lijn 4). De hele straat wordt gekenmerkt door winkels, cafés en restaurants. Van boekhandels tot interieurshops, keukenbenodigdheden tot Concerto. De cafés en restaurants zijn van hoge kwaliteit en zeer betaalbaar.

De beste zijn in deze lijst opgenomen.
Het Amstelveld, met de beroemde Amstelkerk, bevindt zich om de hoek van de Prinsengracht. Het houten kerkgebouw is tussen 1668 en 1670 gebouwd naar een ontwerp van Daniël Stalpaert.

De Huyschkaemer

The Huyschkaemer has been a household name in Amsterdam for years. Although the interior has recently been changed many times, the atmosphere certainly not! You will quickly feel at home in the warm atmosphere of the café, guests and staff. Originally the Huyschkaemer started out as a pub, but after a few years, we also started serving breakfast and lunch. Some sandwiches and dishes really became classics in Amsterdam! 

Obviously you can also enjoy yourself with a couple of drinks with a nice view over Utrechtsestraat. Every weekend we broadcast football. Always on TV, but the nicer and more interesting matches can also be seen on the big screen.

 It is possible to organize a party, reception or meeting. On our second floor you can sit back on the couch with a drink, you can work all day on your laptop (we have WIFI), play old-fashioned fun board games or just chat with each other.

In short, you can spend the whole day with us, like a true “living-room” should be!
