Why Live in Amsterdam?

Now more than ever, expats are interested in moving temporarily to Amsterdam. The city’s welcoming atmosphere and idyllic surroundings appeal to corporate professionals and travellers from all over the world.

Many companies move their employees here to open a new office, while students often come to Amsterdam for a memorable study-abroad experience.

One thing is certain, and it’s that the city offers endless services to support expats in their medium-term stay. Visitors don’t need to learn the language to navigate the city, and they appreciate the large international community.

But these aren’t the only reasons to live in Amsterdam. The city also offers reliable public transportation and exceptional bike paths. Where else can you find the energy of a large metropolis and the charm of a small town?

Challenges of moving to Amsterdam

Amsterdam is an amazing city—but it isn’t without its challenges. One of the greatest barriers expats face is the housing shortage. It can be difficult to search for medium-term rental apartments, as new city laws and even landlords often require longer-term agreements.

Landlords may also require a minimum income, which limits accommodations for digital nomads and self-employed workers. Yet hotels and Airbnbs just don’t cut it for expats who need to register with the city, receive a citizen number, and access services like banking and identification verification (DigiD). City Retreat can also assist with this registration process.

Also, many rentals here in Amsterdam are unfurnished and lack essential appliances. There are also several scams, high utilities, and potential communication barriers with landlords. Combined, these challenges make it difficult for expats to secure temporary accommodations.

This is where City Retreat comes in.
