      D'Maris Coffman recommended Oude Kerk
      Dutch for 'Old Church,' this church is smack in the middle of the main bit of the red-light district. For those interested in architectural history, it is purportedly the oldest building in Amsterdam. ... read more
      The spartan interior speaks to the aesthetic of Dutch Calvinism and there is something for grave-hunters too.

      The 'Old Church' in the center of Amsterdam's red-light district, the spare wooden interior of the church is truly lovely, and has great atmosphere. Numerous eminent personages are buried beneath the ... read more

      Julia P recommended Hotel De Goudfazant
      I do love me some industrial chic, and Hotel de Goudfazant delivers in spades, shovels and exposed infrastructure. The "Good Pheasant" restaurant features adventurous plates like veal tongue along ... read more
      with less challenging tastes like gnocchi with chioggia beets and goat cheese. I really enjoyed not only the adventure of getting here, but the experience of being here. Exceptional service, great atmosphere, and delicious food. Four thumbs up!

      Julia P recommended Noordermarkt Organic Farmer's Market
      Those who enjoy a good stroll through piles of vegetables and towers of cheese, with an occasional stop off to fondle scarves and antiques, will really dig the Noordermarkt. I definitely did. Stop off ... read more

      Julia P recommended Entrecôte et les Dames
      Steak, fries and salad. Incredible tarragon sauce for the steak, mayonnaise that's a cut above for the fries (yes, I have been living in Europe for almost 8 years, and I have mayo on my fries. So ... read more
      there, Pulp Fiction.) And to start, fresh, nearly perfect gem lettuce leaves. Other sexy little touches include leaving your bottle of wine on the table and charging only for how much you've polished off at the end of the meal, and the delightful second helping of steak and fries that comes to the rescue just as you think the deliciousness is about to end.

      Take the ferry to the north side of Amsterdam, crossing the 'IJ' towards NDSM werf. Have a drink at Noorderlicht or Pllek. Visit the EYE filmmuseum. Check out the skatepark http://www.iamsterdam.com/en-GB/Ndtrc/Skatepark%20Amsterdam%20in%20de%20NDSMloods. Into music? visit Muziekgebouw aan het IJ, Paradiso (Leidse square) or get last minute tickects for the Concertgebouw (main hall); all 3 great buildings! In any case, rent a bike and tour the city.

      Matthew Crompton recommended Maoz Falafel
      Maoz is a falafel joint, of the order that keeps Europe thanking the Middle East for bringing something this awesome to its streets. Step one: head inside and select your base; I prefer the falafel ... read more
      with hummus and aubergine. Step two: load up with tasty toppings from the bar. Step three: stand there with the rest of the crowd mowing down. Step four, head back to the bar for more toppings and repeat steps two and three until embarrassingly stuffed. Maoz: just another little thing that makes Amsterdam great.

    • Coffeeshop AmnesiaHerengracht 133, Amsterdam, Netherlands
      Pro 2014
      Matthew Crompton recommended Coffeeshop Amnesia
      Let's be honest: for many people, the name 'Amsterdam' is synonymous with drug tourism. And while the red-light district is chock-a-block with places selling high-grade sinsemilla, few coffeeshops (as ... read more
      such establishments are called in the Netherlands) have as pleasant an atmosphere as Amnesia, located a short distance away on the Herengracht. They've got the usual selection of edibles and pre-rolled spliffs, and vaporizers available for those who aren't cool with smoking. The coffee isn't bad either.

      One of my favorite "coffeshops" in Amsterdam.

    • Mac BikeWeteringschans 2, 1017 SG Amsterdam, Netherlands

      Matthew Crompton recommended Mac Bike
      The ubiquitous Mac Bikes (riding one instantly brands you as a tourist) was my go-to source for pedal-powered transportation whilst in Amsterdam. While the cheaper black bikes are okay, I'd suggest ... read more
      going for the slightly more expensive bikes that have actual hand-brakes, as the coaster brakes on the black bikes I find generally less reliable. All in all, equipment is well-maintained, and the guys at the shop are friendly and helpful. You can find them on the north edge of the center, near the train station.

      Definitely rent a bike and just cycle around -- it's the perfect way to see the city.

      This is cool, especially for those of us who are into tulips. Really enchanting. And it is stunning to contemplate how long these markets have been in operation.

      Sort of hard to give this a miss, but I was a bit underwhelmed. Lots of biographical detail. Your mileage may vary though and it is hard not to admire the great master!

      Hard to miss this really.

      D'Maris Coffman recommended De Kas
      Upscale dutch dining may seem like a contradiction in terms, but this is a great little restaurant with an inviting atmosphere and very good food with a social conscience.

      Brilliant museum and very important in the history of public museumship as well. You can spend a day here, but should at least spend an afternoon. Centrally located too.
