The Watergraafsmeer, located in Amsterdam East, is very popular. Spacious layout combined with lots of greeneries generates a village-like feeling, with all the facilities of the city at walking distance. For your daily groceries you can walk to the Christiaan Huygensplein, the specialty shops on the Middenweg or the Oostpoort shopping center. The Watergraafsmeer is very popular by young families, because it is very child friendly.

There are various restaurants to enjoy, such as Merkelbach, De Kas, 1900, Elsa’s, Bar Wisse or Cafe Cliché. For a cup of coffee, there is a new place at the corner at Badeta. You can go for a walk and have a picnic in one of the nearby parks; Frankendael Park, Flevopark or Oosterpark. Also plenty sports facilities in the area: The Jaap Edenbaan for skating and various tennis, football, hockey and gymnastic clubs are located nearby.
