Amsterdam Noord used to be the working-class neighbourhood, but in the recent years this part of Amsterdam has become a creative hub. Heavy industry has left Noord and it is replaced by companies like Red Bull and MTV, that now have their headquarters here. It is situated on the north of the IJ lake and is now home to many festivals, cultural hotspots and stylish waterfront hangouts. To explore this part of Amsterdam you can easily take one of the free ferries that run all day and night and depart behind Central Station. It is one of the upcoming neighbourhoods in our city.
