Building info

Yays Bickersgracht was built on historic grounds. Long before we moved in, the location was home to an impressive church. During the industrial revolution however, the construction of a railway track spelt doom for the stone house of worship. Tremors from passing trains gradually shook the building apart, leaving the community no choice but to tear it down. Today, we’d like to think we’ve honoured its heritage with 27 beautiful canal side apartments.

Neighbourhood info

Some say Amsterdam is more like a village than a city. This holds especially true for Bickerseiland, just northwest of Central Station. Surrounded by canals, crossed with narrow streets and dotted with local shops, galleries and restaurants, Bickerseiland offers that unique piece of quiet in a city storm. Stay on the island if you’re looking to take it easy or shoot over to the Jordaan and beyond for some proper Amsterdam hustle and bustle. Head south and you’ll come across the lively Haarlemmerdijk with its many cafes, boutiques and restaurants and the markets on Noordermarkt (Saturdays), Lindengracht (Saturdays) and Westerstraat (Monday mornings). Go west for a stroll – or run – in Westerpark or east to discover the architecture and hidden restaurants of the newly built Westerdok.

Welcome to the Neighbourhood

Stylish and modern, the Yays Bickersgracht Apartments are beautifully located in an exclusive area. The Western Isles are a living museum, once home to ship works and the West India Trading Company's warehouses, which buzzed with activity in the early 17th century. Nowadays the district is a world unto itself, cut through with historical canals and linked with small drawbridges.
