What once was a polluted area in Amsterdam is now a beautiful, green, city park bursting with creativity and culture. The Westergasfabriek has become a place to meet people, work and relax. The historic factory buildings serve for large and small events, various restaurants, a movie theater and exhibition venues. “The strength of the Westergasfabriek is not about the historical buildings. One of our biggest strengths is the cultural and event programming,” says Maya Meijer-Bergmans, owner of the Westergasfabriek. “We always keep the concept in mind, and accordingly adjust the programming.”
