The Reinwardt Academy is now located the centre of Amsterdam.

The Reinwardt Academy has moved to the centre of Amsterdam. The building, a municipal monument located on the Hortusplantsoen 1-3, has been expanded and sustainably renovated.

The academy building is situated very close to the stop Waterlooplein of the metro and the Mr. Visserplein stop of trams 9 and 14. Immediate neighbours include the Academy of Architecture, the Hermitage Amsterdam museum, the Hortus Botanicus, the Jewish Historical Museum and the Netherlands Film Academy.

The building on the Dapperstraat in Amsterdam-Oost (Amsterdam East) was used by students and staff of the Academy for more than 20 years. After the summer, that period will become a memory. At the end of the academic year, staff and students will say farewell with an Inpakken en Wegwezen (Packing up and Clearing out) programme. This will include a film, which Master’s student Christian Bosman has collaborated on, about the stallholders at the Dappermarkt located next to the Academy.

New address: Hortusplantsoen 1-3, 1018 TZ Amsterdam
