We discovered this place when we had half an hour for a drink before I caught the train. It was Monday afternoon so the place was empty except for 2 staff and 2 very lovely cats! We liked the aged feel of the interior and felt very comfortable having a drink in the back room further away from the main... More

This building is located on the left when you leave the Central Station, after a short walk you will have a look on it and enjoy the mediëval atmosphere of the tower. Inside you can order food and drinks and then check out Amsterdam.

We visited the Weeping Tower (Schreierstoren) with 4 adults and 2 children on a rainy Monday in May. We were offered crayons and coloring books for the children (we had those with us). We only ordered fries and some drinks, but they were excellent! We sat in the Heerenkamer, and could look out at the Waag. We love old buildings,... More

this little tower was part of the medieval defences as is the Waag on the Nieuwmarkt, view and then walk/cycling towards the Zeedijk (which really once was the dike to defend Amsterdam from the sea and is still higher then the other streets around) is nice. The St Nicolas Church itself is also very nice inside, always open and free... More

If you pass by the Central station and you have 20 minutes to spare and perhaps feel like having a beer in an unusual place, head down to the schreierstoren the weeping tower. In the past was the last building that separated Amsterdam from the sea, where parents, relatives, lovers waiwed the last greeting to the departing sailors that were... More

Strange looking building near to central station. Although the bar is very beautiful, go to the back room, here you have a nice view on the canal in the direction of the Waag. I only tasted the soup at lunch so no idea if the other food is any good. The staff is very friendly once you get their attention.... More
