Tour of Westergasfabriek

The Westergasfabriek was Amsterdam's largest gas works when constructed in 1883, providing fuel for the city's gas lamps and residential uses. When gas production ceased in 1959, the site was highly polluted by the coal and chemicals used in the production process.

 

Transforming the site into a cultural hotspot presented many challenges related to rehabilitation of the old industrial buildings and site clean up. Join us and find out how Amsterdam turned an industrial park into a vibrant urban space!

Corrine van Ellemeet, Head of Business Westergafabriek BV will lead the tour.

Cost: 5 euro

    Great day to learn about the history of Westergasfabriek as a natural gas production site and current initiatives to make it a more sustainable park.
