Building info

Celebrating a special occasion, anniversary, honeymoon or looking for a truly special place to stay in Amsterdam? The Yays - Crane Apartment is the ultimate experience for those interested in history, exclusivity and privacy. This 1957 industrial Figee crane, an icon for the history of the city, was thoroughly renovated and transformed into a luxury three storey apartment. Located on the dynamic KNSM Island, The Yays - Crane Apartment was quite literal the bridge between the Netherlands and the rest of the world after WWII. Enjoy a fantastic view over the IJ river from the comfort of the most beautiful bed in Amsterdam and get access to your very own Yays bicycle, a range of exclusive services and an experience you will never forget. As the last operator of Figee Crane 2868 said: 'It's like travelling back in time'.

Neighbourhood info

KNSM Island, a former industrial harbour turned creative hub, is a charming neighbourhood in the Eastern part of Amsterdam, with many stories to tell. As the epicenter of world trade in the 19th century, VOC traders and world explorers left for the Indies and Americas from here on their magnificent ships. Nowadays it's a dynamic area with lots of art galleries, local shops, hip restaurants and interesting sights. Visit the National Maritime Museum and learn about the history of the city, get your art on at creative melting pot Loods6 or enjoy a walk in one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world, the Hortus Botanicus. Architecture lover? The many uniquely designed bridges connecting the islands and architectural delights are a feast for the eye, all within short distance from The Yays - Crane Apartment.

Welcome to the Neighbourhood

DE KOMPASZAAL

De Kompaszaal will instantly throw you back in time since the building used to function as the first class departure and arrival hall of the former K.N.S.M. (Royal Dutch Steamboat Company) in the fifties. The terrace has been awarded as one of the best ‘holiday-feeling’ terraces by the Amsterdam based newspaper. De Kompaszaal is also a great location for a high tea or high wine. T: +31(0)20 419 9596

BOOKSHOP VAN PAMPUS

The slogan of this bookshop is loosely translated ‘An invitation to stay’. At Van Pampus you will have everything you need: an endless stock of books, armchairs for some relaxed ‘test’ reading, coffee and croissants. Finished your book, coffee and croissant? Then you can head upstairs for some yoga teached by Mrs. Van Pampus. T: +31(0)20 419 3023

PAKHUIS DE ZWIJGER

This former warehouse knows all about creation and innovation in the city. Pakhuis de Zwijgeris an independent platform about urban development, creative industries and global trends that organises lectures, activities and exhibitions. +31 (0)20 624 6380

ARCAM

An impressive building designed by Rene van Zuuk, Arcam offers guided walks where you can follow an architect on a tour of the architecture, museums and cultural institutions of the neighbourhood. And for the refined gift buyer, an impressive array of maps, books and architectural pieces can be found there. +31 (0)20 620 4878

Pompstation

If it weren’t for the massive old windmill down the street, you’d almost mistake Pompstation for a Brooklyn hotspot instead of a restaurant in Amsterdam-Oost. Renowned for its meat from Dutch cows, excellent wine selection and live music, Pompstation never fails to serve up a great night. +31 (0)20 692 2888
