Tours and Tickets

The area
Neighborhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Quaint back alley

Quaint little alleyway featuring some interesting architecture including the ancient City Credit Bank.

A hidden gem
May 2016 • Couples
Make sure to walk down Nes, you find great bars, restaurants and hotels such as Rho and V here. They are fixing up a lot of the buildings here, gutting them out. We can't wait to come back to discover the new places!

Commercial street one block from Rokin
Jul 2014 • Couples
Most tourists do their strolling on Rokin, but one block beyond the waterway, where the construction just seems to go on and on, is a different neighborhood entirely. Check out the low-cost restaurants and other businesses. This is probably not the best street to be walking on alone after dark. Watch out for the puddles of urine and/or vomit which mark where revelers have deposited the products of their evening intoxicants.

Lived here for a bit...

...and wouldn't recommend it unless you are a heavy sleeper, and enjoy the charm of tourist wandering about at all hours urinating and shouting each others names. On the plus side the location is great for shops, there are a couple of nice bars along the Nes and you're minutes away from Rembrandtplein.

What a great Street!
Jun 2014 • Couples
It looks like a poky back alley, but explore a little and you'll find all sorts of restaurants and hotels, plus a little bit of peace and relative quiet just off Nes square. There's also the Comedy theatre and other venues. Seems to be very popular with locals. I can recommend De Brakke Grond for lunch and Van Kerkwijk for dinner.
