Top ways to experience Grey Area and nearby attractions

The area
Address
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.

people who have trolled below obviously have no idea what is truly some of Amsterdam's finest. Im only speaking on 35 years experience.
Jon and crew at Grey Area are top notch folk. See and smoke for yourself.

Visited Amsterdam with my husband, it was our first trip abroad after having our daughter and first time to this city. I had read so many good reviews of this place so it was our first top only an hour after landing and checking in to our hotel. We were a bit shy as the place was so small (like most shops in Amsterdam we'd later figure out) and there was a lot of youngster there (under 25y).

We didn't bring any equipment to the place, but on our way to Grey Area we managed to find a small tourist shops selling some stuff. We really wanted a bong, but the only small bong they had that could fit in my purse was shaped as a pink male genital. Imagine how embarrassing it was to not only ask the staff at Grey Area to fill it with water, but then to use it openly in the shop in front of people. I will never forget it, as soon as we left the place we laughed so much of embarrassment. But the staff were super professional and so helpful, they quickly filled the bong with water and helped us find a good strain to smoke.

During our visit in Amsterdam we tried several coffeeshops and we found that all "famous" coffeeshops couldn't compare to the less unknown ones, but Grey Area was still the best one of all the famous coffeeshops. Dangerous though that they have the chocolate shop just opposite!

Loved the place though. Wish it was bigger so you could hang out there for a longer period of time, we were a bit shy being older (and smoking through the pink genitalia) but next time we go back we'll definitely try and enjoy the place a bit more.

The sativa strains in particular were amazing and had us all laughing uncontrollably for a good few hours. A very enjoyable experience overall, maybe not for first time users as the weed here is very strong, but me and my friends had alot of fun. Very friendly and helpful staff, one even gave me tokes on his joint while I was being served lol

Me and my boyfriend visited daily. Weed is tasty and cheap and they don’t mind if you just pop by to smoke up.

The line can be really busy so would recommend to roll some up for the queue

I was told to look out for this place during my visit as it had the best weed in Amsterdam, luckily it was really close to the hotel I was staying at so I visited on three occasions and I wasn't disappointed. The prices are good, the staff are quick so despite the place always being busy there's never too long of a wait.
As others have mentioned there's no a lot of room inside to sit and chill but take a minute to check out the walls and see all the cool things they've up there.

It's no secret that marijuana and hashish are tolerated in the grand old city. If the genever (Dutch gin) is doing it for you and you want "do as the Romans do"....this is a great place to grab a little something. Owned by Americans, this shop has the finest in pot, hashish, and kief (powered form of hashish) If you are a beginner or haven't partaken in years, ask the "weedkeeper" for something that suits you. Believe it or not, different products have different effects (relaxing, speedy, euphoric) Only a few tables so grab a bag and find a relaxing place to...unwind. But be careful...take a puff and see how you feel....this isn't the weed of days gone by....its potent....but if you use your head it makes for a lot of laughs.
