Been here many times: I'll get the bad out of the way first: -first time we went some very in-your-face (literally) bouncer dude was on the door doing the check your eyes in yer face number, completely OTT, IMO. Wife couldn't relax with him buzzing about and giving off his heavy vibe. Fortunately he's moved to the other dampkring (... More

I have been visiting the Dampkring for 15 years and they never cease to live up to my HIGHEST expectations!!! The weed and hash are top notch and the staff are super knowledgeable and helpful. On my last visit, I overheard the staff explaining to a newbie customer that one should never eat a whole "space cake" at one go... More

Great menu, great atmosphere, and a great decor. Me and one of my friend visited DAMPKRING after it was recommended to us by our fellow bagpacker friends in our dorms. The staff is courteous and people really help to find you best herbs on the planet. It's almost full everytime we crossed it. They have a lovely cat aswell. Will... More

The stuff we bought here was really good and the atmosphere, whilst touristy is much better than the other coffeeshops. The staff were super super helpful and knew exactly what to do when I had a b it too much (dextrose and water)! Also they have an awesome cat there.

Loved this coffeeshop, came in the morning on Fri 25th Aug, it was raining really heavy so we were lucky to get a seat as we had already tried it twice and was too busy but were keen to try. Lovely decor in there, great weed, good music and a wider range of food and drink than most coffeeshops. I... More

A must each time I visited Amsterdam. In a street close to Kalverstraat you'll find De Dampkring (the original one). The place is curious, with warm lights and music. It's used to be pretty full, but this time it wasn't that much and we were able to have some spots easily. The menu is great, and you'll have different choices.... More

Great atmosphere And lovely staff. Weed is good not the best in Amsterdam though. If you're in the area definitely check it out and if your lucky the cats will sit beside you.

I personally liked the place, because all of the people working in it are your friends. Never force you to buy anything until you want to do it yourself. Very helpful in choosing a staff and warn you about side effects :-) I don't smoke, so I tried a cheesecake and chocolate muffin! It was great. They do serve alcohol,... More
