Northern Holland region
North Holland is a broad peninsula for the most part, located between the North Sea, Markermeer and the IJsselmeer. More than half of the province consists of reclaimed polder land situated below sea level.
North Holland has four municipalities with 100,000 or more inhabitants. They are, in order of size, Amsterdam (in terms of population this is also the largest municipality in the Netherlands), Haarlem, Zaanstad, and Haarlemmermeer. Another seven municipalities have a population between 50,000 and 100,000 inhabitants (i.e. Hilversum, Amstelveen, Purmerend, Hoorn, Velsen, Alkmaar, and Heerhugowaard.) The island of Texel is also part of North Holland.
The Windketel is part of a unique complex designed to be a 'village within the city' on the grounds of the prestigious former Public Water Company built in 1900. Gardens, winding footpaths and footbridges connect new dwellings and the impressive industrial monuments of the old water works.
This quiet enclave is only twenty minutes by foot from Central Station. In addition, it is the end of tram line 10, which takes you straight to Amsterdam's four biggest museums and most important shopping and entertainment districts. And the shops, restaurants, open-air markets, cafes and parks of the famous 'Jordaan' district (built in 1612) are only 10 minutes away by foot.
On the neighbourhood are diverse choices of shops, cafés, restaurants, the recent renovated cultural park of the former 'Westergasfabriek' and the famous Café Restaurant Amsterdam is only 30m distance from your house.
For those who come with a car, there is the parking garage 'Westersluis' very close by.
