    We visited for lunch in the cafe not for the library. The selection of food and drink on offer was really very good and varied in choice. He priests are cheaper than you will pay in city. Inside tables and seating outside with views of the city. Friendly staff, bright and clean restaurant. Nice free views across to the south side of the city.
    Free ferry from central station. You can also use the free ferries to travel further up or down the river. Yes a FREE trip or trips. For library 5 min journey. Other trip along was about 12 minutes. If you have children they would love the boat rides.
    The library itself is light and bright with some nice display cabinets to look at.
    Other places to visit this side too especially if you have a bike or moped. You can travel free with those too.

    Very modern style exhibition center, with several separate halls, so there are usual many different kind of exhibitions going on, at the same day. I visited at special theme, during 3 days, finding that easiest way was to choose metro line towards Europaplein, and walk from there. When you choose right exit you'll be at the front of entrances. As it was (not yet) any hot summer (peak) seasons, they used plenty of warming/heating equipments inside. It was still comfortable climate inside.

    Very good restaurant with plenty of choice of the sharing plates. Staff were very attentive and it is good value for money. Good location by the water and easy to get to from the ferry.

    Yet another wonderful looking building along the beautifully completed Damrak. This main entry point in to the city has been so wonderfully restored. Looks so good.

    wacky, wonderful, fun. I was here for a global competition, buzzing with a few hundred passionate and fun university students taking part in a global competition. The venue was ideal for that.

    It's slightly offbeat, a great theatre apace with meeting and networking rooms to he side, above and below in a building with an eminent history, right in the heart of the City.

    I hold very happy memories of the event, the people I met, the Theatre in particular and of the neighborhood. A wonderful day.

    To me it seems unfortunate that only two ceilings are available for viewing to the public, while the rest of this large house is private offices. Those two ceilings are extravagently painted and worth seeing if you are in the neighborhood anyway-- the Rembrandt House is just up the street--but I would not go out of my way to find it. A woman on the ground floor welcomed us and gave us 5 minutes in English about the history of the house and the meanings of the ceilings. The colors have remained remarkably brilliant now, over 300 years after they were painted. Our entire visit lasted less than 15 minutes.

    Pink point is a wonderful place to shop anything pride related, cold drinks and more! The staff is friendly and helpful (pink point also is a LGBTQ+ information point in amsterdam). It’s a place loaded with queer history, right next to the homomonument of amsterdam. You can buy your pride flags, pins, and also postcards :) 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

    The World Fashion Centre Amsterdam on Koningin Wilheminaplein is a commercial centre for importers/dealers in budget garments.Don't expect the glamourous name to be reflected in the quality of the items of clothing for sale here for low prices.
    Koningin Wilhelmina is represented by a large concrete sculpture in front of the centre.
    The area has a small public park at -Heemstedestraat Metro Stop- offering 2 English style flower- borders maintained by local residents.
    Recent building activities have made the area an upmarked residential area.

    I travelled all the way from Belgium to Amsterdam for the Stephan Bodzin gig on 7th November 2021 and overall it was a nice 1st-time experience visiting 'The Marktkantine'.
    This is a well-managed club, there was strict Covid Pass control at the entrance (which I highly support) and a strip search.
    The atmosphere in the club felt very safe due to all the applied safety measures.
    I especially liked the different levels in the venue so you can either enjoy a gig closely from the pit or have a more relaxed stance on the balcony.
    Impressive sound system and sparse but efficiently used light gear.
    The only downside of the Stephan Bodzin gig was the overwhelming amount of decibels produced and noticeable distortion at times.
    i would certainly not recommend standing in the pit or even further back without ear protection. Aside from this small negative, a highly recommendable club.

    NAP ( Het Normaal Amsterdams Peil) or AOD is the reference point according to which elevation is measured in the Netherlands. Well, it's actually a very interesting place to know about the water level meter in the Netherlands and also in Europe. There's enough information about the history of the NAP from the short videos, pictures and posters but it's still difficult to understand for someone like me. On the poster, the entrance fee is € 1.00 but sometimes it is free. The most interesting is seeing the relief on the wall before you go downstairs. As you know "Nederland" means Low Countries, you will see the relief shows you the image of amsterdam that was originally under the water level. Amsterdam was built on poles. The location of this visitor centre is in the town hall.

    This is a large park with lots of greenery and water.

    It is great for running, walking or biking and there are plenty of food and beverage options in and around the park.
