When it comes to stand up comedy and cabaret The Comedy Theater in the Nes is definitely the place to be in Amsterdam! This beautiful theatre located right next to Dam Square is also the perfect place for your convention or private function.

The View (Hack Battle Location)
The Amsterdam View is a unique penthouse loft in the heart of Amsterdam. Located at the storied intersection of the former Amstel river and the historic Dam square, The Amsterdam View has the rare distinction of overlooking Amsterdam from within the heart of the city. Situated on the 6th floor, higher than any building in its vicinity, The Amsterdam View sets the tone for exclusive events and meetings.
The Hack Battle will be held at The View.

How to get there
The Nes street is easily reachable by foot or by bike. It's just a 10 minute walk from Central Station, or, if you prefer public transport, a short walk from the Tram and Metro stops. Use the 9292 public transport website to get directions to the location. Lastly, to make it just that bit easier, we even put it on the map for you.
