Slotervaart (Tuinstad Slotervaart) is a neighborhood in the far western part of Amsterdam, Netherlands. It was designed as a garden city (tuinstad). The area is named after the canal Slotervaart. The first houses were built in 1955.
Just outside the residential area there is a hospital, the Slotervaartziekenhuis (since 1976), and the Netherlands Cancer Institute (NKI) (since 1979).
