Take a 15-minute walk, and the city’s East will show you some of the best it’s got. From a monumental anthropological museum to a greenhouse reinvented as a restaurant, the stroll from Linnaeusstraat and Middenweg to Frankendael Park shows the lively East’s diversity. And with an old-school neighborhood cafe just a block from a hipster coffee bar, this part of town proves that modernity doesn’t have to be the enemy of history.
