Amsterdam The Crane
The Crane by YAYS is bucket list material for couples and solo travellers in search of urban adventures, or anyone looking for design experiences and inspiring views. Originally constructed in 1957 as a harbour crane, this colourful piece of engineering has seen the KNSM Island evolve from an industrial area to a creative hub. The crane underwent a similar transformation when it was completely dismantled, only to be put back together as a luxury apartment, complemented by a luxurious bathtub, superb views, and interior design from the renowned Dutch designer Edward van Vliet. A stay in the Crane apartment by YAYS will be the experience of a lifetime for fans of history, design and architecture, and anyone looking for fun and indulgence. Make this your place in the city, and you’ll be staying inside a piece of Amsterdam history.
