Nowadays, the Oliemolen quarter of Amersfoort, which was an industrial estate until the start of this century, is a creative, innovative, sustainable hotspot. The former Prodent toothpaste factory is the catalyst of this redevelopment. It is now an events venue and home base for the pop podium Fluor. In addition to workplaces and studios where local entrepreneurs work, you can also visit De Nieuwe Stad for a drink and a bite to eat. Hoog Vuur (Oude Fabriekstraat 26) serves as the main living room of this micro-city, café-restaurant Kroast (Kleine Koppel 36) is in the former Rohm & Haas soap factory on the Eemhaven and Het Lokaal (Oliemolenhof 90) is a local shop and a tasting room for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Everything on the menu is locally sourced wherever possible. The restaurants are closed at the moment, but to go options are still available! De Nieuwe Stad is easy to reach by train: just a 10-minute walk from Amersfoort Centraal station.
