The former site of the gunpowder factory in Muiden is undergoing a transformation into a new residential area: De Krijgsman Muiden. The location is truly extraordinary, bordering the IJmeer lake. The woodlands and water features will be preserved as much as possible, giving character to the neighborhood. A unique setting, close to Amsterdam!
The new neighborhood and the surrounding area is perfect for taking hikes, for boating and relaxing in the parks, on IJmeerdijk and in the former canal. A park will be developed near Westbatterij, close to IJmeer lake yet also at the heart of Vestingstad. Immediately adjacent to the neighborhood, the river Vecht meanders from Muiden, via a series of charming Vecht towns, all the way down to Utrecht. The Vecht sluice gates (in the town center of Muiden) and the nearby Oranjesluizen locks will allow you to boat directly to Amsterdam’s canals.
Muiden is a monumental fortress town in Gooise Meren municipality – a peaceful place to live only a stone’s throw from Amsterdam and ’t Gooi. Nature, a rural setting and the beautiful coast of IJmeer lake, there is plenty to do. Muiden’s cozy center offers a range of shops, restaurants and sidewalk cafes. There is a small beach nearby the mouth of the river Vecht, and larger beaches such as Muiderberg and IJburg are also close by. Countless sports clubs and cultural amenities nearby. And of course, annual events such as Vlaggetjesdag, Spiering Festival and Speed Sailing days. Combined with the area’s schools, daycare facilities and grocery shops, there is only one conclusion: this is an excellent place to call home!
