Never seen such a sad Plantage... 2 plants and one is nearly dried out. It costs only 3€ but even that is to much.

Went in here randomly, the man behind the counter was very helpful and full of knowledge, knew a lot about cannabis and answered any question that was fired at him. Only downfall was the "Cannabis College" was mis leading, you had to pay a donation of 2 euros (I think) to see "real life" plants growing but when you went... More

Extremely friendly staff here, they are doing so much to educate people about cannabis and its many uses, you can make a small €3 donation and visit their little grow room and take photos! Will be calling in again next time!

Best spot in Amsterdam, first place you should visit. Lots of free information. The staff are helpful and very knowledgeable, can help you to find the best coffeeshops and avoid the terrible ones. Great place to chill out and have a smoke, or try the vaporisers. Plus for a small donation you can visit the cannabis garden downstairs. Awesome !

Great information, everything free of charge. Passionate people will tell you everything you need to now about cannabis, coffee shops and even a tourist information ;) . I suggest everyone to start his coffee shops journey right there.

Not much to see. A great and friendly hosts but really not worth a trip and PLEASE avoid the basement 'garden' ... its a few plants behind the glass. And you have to pay but dont know what's down there till you go. THey do let you try their vaporizers, but that's about it

The Cannabis College ist interesting. It is like a museum for cannabis. There you can see, what you can do out of cannabis. It is really informative. But I think the 3 Euros for the cannabis garden in the cellar is not that good. I think you don`t have to pay for this. It`s not with it.

I was a little disappointed of what this establishment has to offer. I may have got the wrong day to visit but the guy working there was arrogant and kind of ruined my experience. It was interesting to read all about the topic, and yes, you may say what else do you expect for a free venue, but I also... More

The people here were not open to discussion that was not in line with their view, nor any critique on the "research" they display. Be prepared to be yelled at and shunned out if you bring your own opinion.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
