Oude Houthaven

Oude Houthaven (Old Lumber Port):

The Houthaven (Amsterdam) is a neighborhood of the city of Amsterdam, in the Netherlands. Literally meaning ‘lumber port’, the Houthaven is a port situated along the IJ river in Amsterdam’s western port.

It is bordered by a dam in the IJ river to the north and the Spaarndammerbuurt in the south. It is currently predominantly used by inland barges, however plans are in motion to radically change the area in the next few years by building a new residential area on seven artificial islands.

The harbour is made up out of four parts (from east to west); Oude Houthaven (Old Lumber Port), Houthaven, Nieuwe Houthaven (New Lumber Port) and Minervahaven (Minerva Port). This is why the Houthaven is also referred to as the Houthavens (which is the plural).
