Why should I go all the way to Noord?

We had no doubts at all about where we wanted to start our restaurant: it had to be on the hip Zwaanshals in the Oude Noorden area.

Everything and everyone mixes here: from Faas, the old pub on the corner where it’s always really relaxed and you can bring your own food, to the cool new sneaker store Xander Franklin. There are many new businesses, but ‘the old’ has been preserved. For example, I often have a cup of coffee with other entrepreneurs at Tom Coffee, Whiskybase is a little further away and the pet store is also still around. On Saturdays, the Harvest Market has good local and organic products that can only be sold if they meet strict conditions.

Where can I see the typical Oude Noorden at a glance?
