How to get here

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). Use the public transport travel planner website to plan your trip. Once you've reached the Cruquiusweg, you'll find us behind the second gate on the right.


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).


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. Besides the Amsterdam Harbour dues (paid through a sticker you have to buy when entering Amsterdam), we charge 1,- per meter per day when you're not working on your boat.
