Moving to Amsterdam as an expat
Don’t let the city’s small size fool you, as Amsterdam is as much of a business and industry hub as it is a culturally rich spot on the map. So the next time you’re thinking of those Instagram-perfect narrow houses with gabled facades reflecting on canal water, remember that this image goes hand in hand with cutting-edge industries and thousands of internationals with different backgrounds buzzing through the streets, sharing, reflecting, and making the most of what the city has to offer.
Major companies in the fields of technology, film industry, travel, fashion, and more choose Amsterdam as home to their headquarters and offices within the region.
To put things in numbers, Amsterdam welcomed over 130 international companies in the year 2021 alone in the fields of tech, logistics, health, and creative industries, breaking its own 2020 record by creating twice as many jobs that year so we’re positive the future can only be bright for this Dutch gem overflowing with bikes.
