Recently opened in Amsterdam: Café De Tropen

April 24, 2017 Destination Europe No Comments Email Email

April 2017, The newest, greenest and sunniest terrace of Amsterdam, directly next to the famous Tropen Museum and Eastern Park (in Dutch: Oosterpark), is opening as soon as the sun begins to shine, no matter which season it is! This summer with diverse activities planned, for young and old.


The upcoming eastern area of Amsterdam nowadays is the secret hangout for the locals. So is café de Tropen, that used to be accessible through the famous Tropen Museum only. It has recently become its own facility with a completely redesigned interior and menu; this new lively hotspot in the heart of Amsterdam-East, designed by studio Piet Boon has had a huge makeover this spring. Add a professional catering team to the mix, and you have Café De Tropen.

Terrace barbecue

This summer it will be more than a sunny terrace; featuring events ranging from late-night salsa and full picnics to kid’s face painting events and even terrace barbecues. Everyone is welcome inside, outside, on the terrace and around the whole area containing hammocks and beach chairs!

Amsterdam Oost (East)

Amsterdam Oost, or the Eastern part of Amsterdam has been upcoming lately. Not only Café De Tropen, but the whole area has been evolving into a bundle of hotspots which seem to be popping out behind every corner. While the centrum of Amsterdam is accustomed to being filled with tourists, Amsterdam Oost remains a less explored area. Which means that there are many things to discover and everyone can find something to tickle their fancy in this part of town; from hip coffee tents to charming markets.

Eastern park

Café De Tropen is housed in the historic Royal Tropical Institute Building at Mauritskade 63 in Amsterdam and is open seven days a week, be it for breakfast (croissant with jam or yoghurt with muesli € 2,75), lunch (cheese toasti € 4,50, grilled vegetables salad € 9,50) or an afternoon drink (Heineken tap 0,25 liter € 2,80) with famous Dutch bitterballen (€ 7,00). With nice weather on your side you can enjoy the lovely view of the Eastern Park from the just as lovely terrace or surrounding area.
