The Tramkade District in Den Bosch is such a cool and urban area with lots of places to explore. For more than a hundred years, the Spoorzone of Den Bosch, where Tramkade is located, was the site where the animal and compound feed factory De Heus was located. Since 2014 this industrial location has been turned into a cultural and creative hotspot where you can eat, drink, shop, dance and enjoy various cultural events with a late night party scene.
There are three main buildings on the site: The Kaaihallen, The Mengfabriek and the Werkwarenhuis. The Kaaihallen, where animal feed was produced, now has an industrial look and is mainly used for events. The Mengfabriek is located in the former compound feed factory of the Heus. You can eat, drink, dance and play vintage arcade games at Barkade or drink coffee and dine at Espressobar da Silva. In the Werkwarenhuis you will find the design collection of Social Label and the Instagrammable pink cafe / restaurant Van Aken. You'll also find various creative studios from various artists and near the water front you'll find the beer brewery and tasting room De Bossche Brouwers. And lets not forget The Verkadefabriek: In the former cookie factory you can enjoy theater, cabaret, film, debates, food, drinks and more.
If you like industrial sites like Strijp-S in Eindhoven you should definitely visit the Tramkade.
