To VenhoevenCS from Central Station Amsterdam
At Central Station Amsterdam you can easily rent a bicycle from OV-fietsverhuur. It will take you 15 minutes to bike from Amsterdam Central Station to VenhoevenCS.
From ‘ijzijde’ at Central Station you can take bus 22 in the direction of Muiderpoortstation, to bus stop ‘Wittenburgergracht’. From there it will take you 3 minutes to walk to the Vriesseveem building where VenhoevenCS is located.
Another option is to take a walk from Central Station to VenhoevenCS, along the beautiful street views that Amsterdam has to offer. This walk will take about 25 minutes.
Inside the building, take the stairs or elevator (through the parking garage), you will find us on the 3rd floor: F19.
VenhoevenCS is situated in Vriesseveem. This former warehouse was built in 1895. From 1980 to 1990 the Dutch Communist Party (CPN) used the building as its headquarter and printing office for their paper De Waarheid (‘The Truth’). In 1990 they were succeeded by another political party, Groenlinks.
Since 1999 the building is in use as a multi-tenant building and VenhoevenCS’s playground. Among our co-tenants are a media and entertainment company, a communication and advertizing agency, a graphic designer, a financial consultancy, an agent for fabrics and furniture and a non-profit organization with the goal to empower women.
Vriesseveem is located on the Hoogte Kadijk in the Kadijken area of the centre of Amsterdam. The building overlooks a canal and our next door neighbor is the shipyard King William.
There are some interesting organizations in our neighborhood. Arcam, the Amsterdam Architecture Center is just around the corner. Pakhuis de Zwijger, the place where the discourse about the future of the city is developed, is a couple of minutes away.
