Amsterdam-Noord (in English: Amsterdam-North or North Amsterdam) is a borough of Amsterdam, Netherlands. The borough is situated north of the IJ lake, the body of water which separates it from central Amsterdam and the rest of the city.

On the northwest and northern side the borough borders the municipalities of Zaanstad (city Zaandam), Oostzaan, Landsmeer and Waterland.





The area of Amsterdam-Noord is connected by one road bridge, the Schellingwouderbrug, and three road tunnels, the Coentunnel (west), IJtunnel (centre) and Zeeburgertunnel (east) to other parts of Amsterdam. Furthermore, there are 5 passenger ferries for pedestrians and bicycles. There are bus connections with the centre and other parts of Amsterdam and with Purmerend, Volendam and Zaandam. Because the area is physically separated from the rest of the Amsterdam conurbation it is not served by trams. The area will be served by metro when the under construction North-South line opens (currently planned for 2018).
