How to get there

Car
Take the ‘Zeeburg’ exit from the ring road (A10). Turn left onto the ‘IJburglaan’ and follow the signs ‘Industriegebied Cruquius’. Turn left at the traffic lights onto the ‘Zuiderzeeweg’ (driving past the P&R). Follow the road over the bridge and at the traffic lights, turn right onto the ‘Zeeburgerdijk’. After the bend in the road, turn right onto the ‘van Lohuizenlaan’. Turn right again (follow the main road) onto the ‘Cruquiusweg’. Turn directly right through the second gate (opposite the Harbour Club). You then drive across the Harbour Club parking lot and onto our property. Parking there is free (we’ll give you a token to get back through the barrier).

Boat
Our dock is on the canal called the ‘Nieuwe Vaart’, which connects the ‘Oosterdok’ (maritime museum) with the ‘Amsterdam-Rijnkanaal’ (through the sash locks called the ‘Zeeburgerschutsluis’). You can dock with us if your boat is no longer then 12 meters. If this takes place in a maximum of 3 x 24 hours and is done on the inside of the ship, no additional permit is required. We charge 1,- per meter per day when you’re not working on your boat. Ask about the possibilities!

Public transport
Several busses and trams stop within a few minutes walking distance of De Openbare Werkplaats. You can take bus 22 (busstop: Veelaan) or trams 3, 7 or 14 (last stop before the Flevopark). Once you’ve reached the Cruquiusweg, you’ll find us behind the second gate on the right.
