Amsterdam South East

Amsterdam-Zuidoost is a district of the municipality of Amsterdam in the Dutch province of North Holland. The South East district was established in 1987.

Zuidoost does not border the rest of the municipality of Amsterdam, but is separated from it by the municipalities of Ouder-Amstel (in particular the village of Duivendrecht) and Diemen. The area was originally part of the agricultural municipality of Weesperkarspel. When it was decided to build a new city here in the 1960s, Weesperkarspel was assisted by the municipality of Amsterdam. The area was then annexed by Amsterdam on August 1, 1966. Prior to the annexation, it was agreed that after 12 years (in 1978) this area would be merged with the municipality of Ouder-Amstel. However, he did not like that and so it remained part of the municipality of Amsterdam. This makes it the only district that does not share borders with the rest of Amsterdam. The oldest district in the district is the Bijlmermeer.

Zuidoost has emerged as a characteristic and versatile living environment within the Amsterdam city limits. This green district has an excellent location between the Green Heart, the IJmeer and the bustling city center and enjoys excellent accessibility.

Amsterdam South East is a lively and diverse neighborhood with a mix of cultural, commercial and residential facilities.
