Map of the former municipality Watergraafsmeer in 1869.
The Watergraafsmeer is a polder in the Netherlands. It was reclaimed in 1629. In the 17th and 18th centuries, there were many buitenplaatsen in the Watergraafsmeer, though nowadays only one, Frankendael, remains.
Since 1921, the Watergraafsmeer is part of the city of Amsterdam and its rural character has all but disappeared. It is located in the stadsdeelOost/Watergraafsmeer. The most important streets in the Watergraafsmeer are the Middenweg and the Kruislaan.
