Noorderlicht Cafe and restaurant is situated at the industrial NDSM wharf, a former shipyard at the waterfront. Now it’s becoming more and more of a trendy place to be for festivals and other events. Even though it’s becoming more up and coming, you still have to know where you’re going or else you won’t find it. But once you're there you can enjoy the beautiful view over the IJ river.
