The Vruchtenbuurt is a popular city district, largely built in the 1930s, and  characterised by quiet streets, small squares, and beautiful courtyards such as the Groene Mient and Limoenhof. There are plenty of spacious apartments and flats, as well as single-family houses with front gardens and trees that provide ample greenery.

The Vruchtenbuurt is a neighbourhood that has a lot to offer, including many shops in the Appelstraat and Vlierboomstraat in addition to the big shopping center in Savornin Lohmanplein.
Most of the inhabitants are young adults (51%) and six out of ten households consist of one person.
