Our first year in Amsterdam we lived in the Rivierenbuurt, on the Rijnstraat, just one of many streets named after rivers. The area was built as the initial stages of the “Plan Zuid” and amonsgt other charms has many nice examples of the Amsterdam School of architecure and planning, especially Berlage and De Klerk. You can also see some of the area, past and present, in this online tour based on “De Zuidelijke Wandelweg”.
