Places to stay and Hotel Tips
The Westcord Art Hotel is just a 15 minutes walk from the historical centre of Amsterdam.
Colourful, modern rooms make this a go-to locale when you’re in the city.
The hotel has a unique art collection by the famous Dutch painter Herman Brood.
Enjoy the atmosphere, which includes a terrace with a bar.
If you’re looking for something close to the festival site that’s luxurious and different, then consider staying at the amazing Crane Hotel Faralda!
It’s a former working crane at the NDSM shipyard, and each of the design suites is decorated in a different theme.
And if 5-star luxury is not your scene, then there’s plenty of other options to choose from around the Central Station.
Or when in the city of canals, why not try out a Houseboat?
How to get there
The DGTL festival location, NDSM, is a former dock and shipbuilding wharf that fell into disrepair after it closed down in the 80s.
Now it’s a fantastic cultural center and a space with a lot of creative energy.
One of the best ways to reach the venue is to take the ferry from the waterfront at Amsterdam Central Station to the NDSM Werf across the IJssel River.
Car travelers should use “tt Neveritagweg 15, Amsterdam” as the navigational address, but note that parking near the festival site is limited.
Bike riders can either leave their bike at the Central Station and take the NDSM Werf ferry or take the ‘Buiksloterwegveer’ ferry if they’d like to get right to the venue.
