What a fantastic cafe - possibly THE best Amsterdam brown cafe I've visited in my (so-far) 3 months in the city, Cafe Chris is located just a short walk from the the Noordmarkt, Westermarkt and Anne Frank House, and yet down a side road it...More
The very best of Amsterdam’s famous brown bars. This is definitely a place for “locals”, but the very friendly barman made these “tourists” feel like locals as we sipped a couple of pints of Amstel and snacked on the best (and least expensive) bitterballens we...More
Old as time itself, this amazing place is testament to the rule of "if it ain't broke don't fix it"!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.

hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
