Nova Apartments is located in the chic Museumkwartier of Amsterdam-Zuid. It is a very attractive location for tourists who want to discover Amsterdam’s famous sights. Business guests also like to come here because of the easy accessibility to the Zuidas business district, the WTC and the RAI Convention Centre. The Museumkwartier is of course the place where art and history come to life. The Rijksmuseum with Rembrandt and Vermeer, the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum with Mondriaan and Malevich, and the Moco Museum with Banksy, Dali and others.

And a few hundred metres from Nova Apartments, you will also find the most exclusive shops, best restaurants and world-famous Concertgebouw on the green Museumplein.

The nearby Vondelpark, Amsterdam’s most popular city park, is always busy with walkers, skaters and sun worshipers. There are also regular performances in the open-air theatre. Practical: there is also a large supermarket so you don’t need to bring anything for your apartment.
