Regarded as the poshest neighborhood in Amsterdam, Oud Zuid has a decadent mix of culture and shopping. Residents feel generally safe and are pleased with their schools and other infrastructure. Certainly very few complain about having Vondelpark as a back garden.

Area
Lodged between De Pijp and Amsterdam West, Oud Zuid begins just south of Stadhouderskade at Museumplein and fans out to Amsterdams Ring highway. In a way, it is a geographical mirror to the horseshoe formed by the canal ring.

History
Oud Zuid rose from mostly marshland at the end of 19th century when Amsterdam was enjoying a second Golden Age of sorts. Oud Zuids more affluent residents were quick to support the building of not only green spaces but also a world class concert hall, the Royal Concertgebouw. Museumplein, while now established as a cultural centre, has previously been the setting for the World Exhibition in 1883, concrete bunkers during WWII and massive anti-nuclear demonstrations in the 1980s. Meanwhile Vondelpark became world famous during the 60s and 70s as the hippie park.

Highlights
Naturally its nice to live near one of the greatest overviews of Western Art in the world. Two of the main museums, the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museumt, reopened in 2013 after extensive renovations. The citys green lung of Vondelpark remains Amsterdams most densely populated place-to-be whenever the sun shines. One can shopfor everything from daily groceries to specialty chocolate; interior design items to beauty treatments; Hugo Boss to Marlies Dekkers sexy underwearalong such arteries as PC Hooftstraat, Jacob Obrechtstraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat and Beethovenstraat.

Your neighborhood
In general the area is quiet and residential, but with nearby arterial streets providing easy access to daily shopping needs. Oud Zuid not only has some of the citys more highly rated schools, but also features other children-friendly diversions such as parks and public swimming pools. Further south around the 1928 Olympic Stadium, there has been a lot of construction of housing attracting younger families of professionals. Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdam forest) is nearby for a quick nature escape.

Eating, drinking, etc
Oud Zuid is central: on one end you have Amsterdams nightlife and culture square Leidseplein and on the other Amstelveenseweg that is developing into a true culinary boulevard. And throughout the neighborhood, a new wine bar seems to pop up every week. But for residents, firm favorites remain Vondelparks Caf Vertigo and Blauwe Theehuis, as well such more traditional neighborhood brown cafs such as Welling where classical musicians come to unwind after their show at the Royal Concertgebouw.
