About Anrik Engelhard
I am born&grown, educated in Amsterdam, but lived and worked for years in tropical areas as a doctor (clinical and public health). My wife Carla works for the Municipality of Amsterdam. We love to make long bicycle tours in Holland and abroad. We are active in a local group of climate activists for CO2 reduction among citizens.
Anrik Engelhard purchased this cabin in 2001
Why Anrik Engelhard chose North Amsterdam
Carla became 'claustrophic' in our previous 7 th floor apartment. To our surprise we ended up in Amsterdam North where nature is in the backyard....We were very lucky to find this place and never take it for granted.
What makes this cabin unique
After an exiting day in town get rid of the noise, the dust. Park your car secure in front of the house at no cost. Even better, leave your car next day; take our (free!) bicycles. After 20 minutes you are in town after enjoying the view from the (free/7x24) ferry. Even taxi drivers say: 'Wow, I didn't know we have places like this in Mokum' !! (Amsterdam).
