If you live in 2Peer, a car appears to be wholly unnecessary. You can be in the centre of Amsterdam within ten minutes by bicycle. The Flevopark and Insulindeweg tram stops are also within walking and cycling distance. If you do want to drive, 2Peer is very centrally located near the A10 motorway, Amsterdam’s ring road, which is a mere six minutes away.

The fact that Amsterdam East is full of potential has not gone unnoticed by vendors either. Shop for the most beautiful interior accessories at Things I Like Things I Love (Javastraat 75A), enjoy a healthy lunch with your colleagues at restaurant PARK (‘s-Gravesandestraat 55) or kick-start your weekend with a drink at Brouwcafé Bruut (Cruquiusweg 83 D), located just around the corner from 2Peer.

Stroll along the extensive boardwalk after work or soak up the warm rays of the sun in one of the inner gardens on the weekend. The bustle of everyday life will feel far, far away for a while. The ultimate mix between the tranquillity of living on the water and the bustling city centre — only a stone’s throw away.
