The Zorgvlied cemetery is the equivalent of the Père Lachaise in Paris. It has become an attraction for the residents of Amsterdam. It's known for its prestigious residents from the worlds of show business, art and literature. In addition to being the last resting place for some of the city's most important people, this pretty, flowered cemetery is a haven of peace and meditation far from the daily stress of the city.


An architectural marvel of the 19th century


Inaugurated in 1870, the Zorgvlied cemetery was designed by Jan David Zocher, a Dutch architect who was highly influenced by English gardens. Zorgvlied was expanded four times between 1892 and 1926. It was the cemetery of the wealthy and of personalities and continues to be so today. It contains some very original funerary monuments such as those of Oscar Carré and the Dorrepaal family.

Paradiso


Perceptions have changed a great deal since the 19th century. Since the burial of Manfred Langer - the very popular founder of the iT club in Amsterdam - a new area of the cemetery called Paradiso has been dedicated to unusual monuments. It contains a statue of Langer with a glass of beer in his hand.

Romain, 35 ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

I love Amsterdam's open spirit. It's easy to meet people and have rich, interesting conversations. The heart of the city is bubbling over with cultural initiatives, secret restaurants and nature routes that relax you in no time. I want to share it all with you!
