The Pijp area Amsterdam was built at the end of the 19th century to allow a new influx of labor and population to Amsterdam.
Many artists, students and even prostitutes came to live in the new district.
As a result, De Pijp was soon referred to as the Latin Quarter of Amsterdam. With the small streets, the alternative residents, the many bars and restaurants and the atmosphere in De Pijp, it resembles the famous Parisian student district.
More than 144 nationalities live in De Pijp and the district is one of the most popular locations in Amsterdam to live, shop and go out.
Highlights are the Albert Cuypmarkt with 250 stalls every day. Many with a most diverse culinary offer.
Home of the Heineken Brewery alongside other microbreweries.
Architectural examples of houses built according to the Amsterdam School of Architecture.
Next to the museum district, the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh museum.
