Overview

Knowing the best places to experience Amsterdam’s artistic subculture can be difficult. Skip the crowded tourist attractions and discover off-the-beaten track cultural highlights on a bike tour of trendy suburbs and often-overlooked landmarks. Along the way, discover historic architecture, travel by ferry, and finish your tour at a microbrewery to re-energize with a complimentary beer and snack.

What to Expect

This experience will start in Amsterdam Westerpark in front of an old water tower. Then we set out to explore the history, art and culture of Amsterdam in classic Dutch fashion: by bike. We will end in a small brewery for a nice local brewed beer. Along the way, we’ll see modern architecture like the EYE Film Institute Netherlands and we will show you hidden art, nice cafe’s to hangout, old factories and neighbourhoods most people miss.

We’ll pass some of the most beautiful canals in the Canal District and Jordaan as well as former shipyards from the 17th and 19th century. While pedalling, we’ll pass historic drawbridges, an old Russian submarine, small canalhouses and see some of the most beautiful street art and graffiti at NDSM area.  We’ll also hop on a ferry at two different times to see parts of the upcoming Amsterdam North.

The tour ends in the microbrewery Troost, one of Amsterdams newest breweries. They have more than 10 beers on draft and also several non-alcoholic alternatives.

Time: 2pm – 5.30pm
Included:
– Bicycle
– A Local Craft Beer
– Dutch Snack
Meeting Point: Watertorenplein 6, Amsterdam
