A large building, which was formerly inhabited by a crafts school, stands in the middle of the neighbourhood on the Timorplein. Its renewal represents an initiative which has improved the social and cultural environment. Around the corner of Lombokstraat there are two cinemas, a theatre and a nice cafe with an outdoor terrace, all hosted by Studio/K. Beside it there is the CyberCorner, a digital youth centre. The Stayokay hostel attracts lots of tourists, who go beyond the centre of the city and explore the hidden sites of our neighbourhood. Thanks to the advantages of IIRE’s infrastructure, Timorplein offers possibilities to prepare organised public and international gatherings, conferences and seminars, occasional celebrations and protocol festivities.

 A neighbourhood being renewed 

Quite extensive work has been done to change the living environment in Zeeburg. A major renovation of the square and the nearby streets has made the neighbourhood look refreshed and neat. The vivid and busy Javastraat has new wide and clear pavements. More flats are being built to attract new residents who will be moving in; for more information on the neighbourhood read on.


The surroundings

The kind of atmosphere that the neighbourhood conveys is reflected in the location where a street market takes place every day. It takes 10 minutes walking to reach the Dappermarkt, just the other side of the railway line. There it is possible to buy food and clothes from all around the world at the most friendly prices. 

We are situated in surroundings close to the IJ harbour, with a refreshing atmosphere where it is possible to take an enjoyable walk, do some sightseeing of the most modern architecture and visit some of the contemporary entertainments and other attractions situated along the waterfront and the main road.
