About our name

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‘.

About Wayfinding:

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
