Amsterdam is known for its wealth of international cuisines and diverse restaurant scene. But for a long time, one country was remarkably absent: Germany. Bas Leenes saw this as an opportunity and, together with his German wife, he opened Amsterdam’s first German restaurant in 2014: Wurst & Schnitzelhaus. ‘WuSH’ on the Prinsengracht proved to be an instant success, so a year ago Leenes opened a second restaurant inside Amsterdam Central Station, overlooking the beautiful waters of the IJ. Since June last year, it offers the same mouth-watering traditional German fare such as schnitzels, sauerkraut, flammkuchen and bratwurst.
