Unless there is an event happening there is no need to really go here to explore. There are some cute bars/places to eat dinner but wandering in the warehouse was a bit boring. I thought it would be busier because we were here between 4-8pm. Some cool graffiti but it’s mainly just people’s tags. Everything is very spaced out so take a bike!

If you like graffiti and street art, this is the place.
From Amsterdam Central Station, you can catch the F4 free ferry to get there.

You will find several opportunities to take some nice pictures, and if you're lucky, you can see some people doing graffities.

There is also an amusement fair nearby.

There's a free ferry ride that'll take passengers between Amsterdam Centraal and Amsterdam north where there's the former dockyards and now partly gentrified with art space and exhibitions. Good fun

The NDSM area is a former shipyard which was transformed in the nineties to a rough area for creative people, by repurposing the huge former shipyard buildings - "The rugged sister of the Museum Square". Now it is being gentrified more seriously with housing and museum development ongoing. It can be visited very easily by free ferry from Central Station to NDSM. There is one normal four star hotel -the Hilton DoubleTree- and a number of quirky hotels such as the budget Botel, the boutique ship hotel Kapitein Anna and the luxurious and outrageous Crane Hotel Faralda. There are numerous restaurants, such as Noorderlicht, de IJ-Kantine, Cannibale Royale, de Pannenkoekenboot, Pollux Pacific (a former naval instruction ship) and above all Pllek, a very hip and large restaurant in the former paintshop of the shipyard. Pllek looks on the outside like a junkyard but actually serves refined food and has a city beach on the river side. Every month one weekend is dedicated to a flee market in the enormous IJ-Hallen. An eye-catcher is the enormous colorful mural of Anne Frank by Eduardo Kobra - "let me be myself". Overall worth a visit or also good as a place to stay when visiting Amsterdam.

This area probably appeals to photographers wanting to compose shots of post-industrial, graffitied landscapes. Also good for Instagrammers who want to appear edgy online. However there wasn't much to enjoy. Not much art, the warehouse building of art studios was empty of people and closed up, and the 2 or 3 bars along the wharf were just bars. I hear Pllek does good food, but a lot of places do. I got the ferry back and headed back into the buzzy Amsterdam canals I came for.
If you want a modern, foody, urban side of Amsterdam, go to de Hallen and explore the Foodhallen and the Kanarie Club.

You have to take the (free) ferry to get here. It used to be a place where they build big ships. Now its a nice and rough place to go for a walk or have some drinks/bites or dinner in one of the restaurants. Every tourist should go here, because its something else!

Not on any tourist map but well worth the trip even for half an hour. Catch the free ferry from Centraal to the wharf. Stroll around and take in the various artistic creations. Loved the crane hotel.

Worth a visit. Parking however was full so we parked for free locally as cycled in and used the free ferry to get into Amsterdam. Enjoyed the graffiti walls!

Great place to visit if you like street art and alternative art. Also, a few really nice bars/restaurants with great outdoor spaces and a very relax vibe.

The place to be if you want some fresh pics for your instagram. Really nice to just stroll around and enjoy the vibe.
