Visitors arriving at Amsterdam leave by the main entrance and plunge through the Dam and pass the rip-off tourists trapas and eateries to buy poster of a van Gogh painting, should look back over their shoulder. Walk to the water side and take a free ferry that shuttles across the harbour to Amsterdam North. Here at the landing point you can enjoy one of the best baked apple pies and cream with delicious coffee in the Cafe De Point. Lovely looking female university students, earning some spare cash will on a sunny day suggest the garden and a new menu of small and varied dishes. All the food from local farms just twenty minutes bike ride away. A meal of delights with a full bottle of good wine for three people was affordable to this mid- income pensioner and traveller. The location affords wonderful harbour views. To the west the new swan-like grace of a Film Center, THE EYE with its own large terrace. The place to see the annual Amsterdam Sail. Beneath the harbour waters a new metro line is nearing completing that will make this small district of some of the best working class houses built in Europe, a place to live. After your pleasant meal. A walk through parks and along the canals to admire old sailing boats.
Just take a free ferry on the harbour side of Amsterdam Centraal Station and enjoy good food at affordable prices and the sense of a new modern water world with its promise of a floating houses.
