We often get the question: ‘What are the best places to visit in Amsterdam?’ Of course, this is not an easy question to answer since everyone’s opinion of what’s best is different. But we can at least share our five favourite places to visit in Amsterdam. You can decide where to go afterwards. By the way, if you’re looking for a three day itinerary in Amsterdam, you should definitely read this post.
1. NOT A PLACE BUT A NEIGHBOURHOOD: AMSTERDAM NORTH
You might have already found out when you visited this website: Amsterdam Noord (North) is our favourite neighbourhood in the city. We even have a tour that shows you around in what some people call the Brooklyn of Amsterdam. There is so much to see: street art, forests, parks, old houses, modern houses. Literally almost anything you can think off. Curious to see this neighbourhood and feel like a local? Book a tour with us!
2. OUR FAVOURITE MUSEUM: HUIS MARSEILLE
We’ve been raving about this museum on and on and on. Situated in an old canal house, this photography museum is probably one of the most edgy locations in the city centre of Amsterdam. Young photographers are exhibiting their work in different kind of rooms and for anyone who wants to refresh afterwards, there is the opportunity to have a drink in the garden of the museum.
3. A PLACE TO EAT: BAUT
A place as well decorated as Baut should definitely be in this post. This pop-up restaurant has a different location in the city every once in a while. That is what it makes it so unique! If you want to have dinner at a location where they put their best effort in everything, even into the tiny details, this is the place to go.
4. SOME PLACES TO SHOP FOR AMSTERDAM BRANDS
Did you ever taste chocolate from one of these three chocolate brands? We’re particularly big fans of the bars of the Chocolatemakers. Another great brand founded in Amsterdam is the lingerie brand Love Stories. More a sneaker fan? Here are three sneaker brands that you should know! As you can see, there are plenty of nice brands to shop over here!
5. ENJOY A PARK OTHER THAN THE VONDELPARK
We have so. many. parks. over here. Vondelpark is not the only one. Park Frankendael for instance is beautiful. They even have one of our other favourite restaurants de Kas over here, which is a restaurant in a greenhouse. The Amsterdam forest is a really nice place to chill as well, as are a lot of other parks and forests. Go and explore the options!
