Use in titles and in the first paragraph always ‘Marineterrein Amsterdam’ (without the), after that it’s simply ‘the Marineterrein’. If necessary, you can add that it is a former military area. The ‘former Marineterrein’ does not exist. The Marineterrein is still partly military, which is officially called ‘Marine Etablissement Amsterdam‘.


During the military past, all buildings were numbered, street names do not exist. That’s why the wayfinding system is based on these numbers.  It consists of roughly 4 components:

  • Street plan signs (at the entrances)
  • Door signs (metal frames with blue signs)
  • Routes (a yellow route along Kade West and a red route across the Voorwerf) visible on lampposts and signposts
  • Building numbers


  • [the name of your company]
  • Marineterrein Amsterdam [link included]
  • Kattenburgerstraat 5
  • Building number XXX-X
  • 1018 JA Amsterdam

How to find us at the Marineterrein:

  •  [in case you’re located at the Voorwerf] Follow the red route, visible on lampposts and signposts. Blue signs indicate the number of the building
  • [in case you’re located at Kade West] Follow the yellow route,  visible on lampposts and signposts. Blue signs indicate the number of the building.
