Neighborhoods
If you walk to one end of the 'Slijkstraat' (street), you will find the 'Nieuwmarkt': one of the most cosy (‘gezellige’) and well-known squares of the city, surrounded by restaurants, bars and terraces, but also filled with market stalls in the daytime. Go fine dining in the monumental building 'De Waag', walk further onto the 'Zeedijk' street to find a tiny Chinatown with plenty of Asian food, or walk 10 minutes more west to find the city’s best cocktails in Hiding in Plain Sight.

Have fun cycling, but be safe

All the big central attractions are at walking distance. For other places such as Museum District, Vondelpark, Albert Cuijp Market and others can be easily reached with public transport. You can buy your ticket in the Tram, Metro or Bus and pay only buy card. If you feel comfortable cycling it is very nice to rent a bike, it can get very busy in the centre so please stay safe.

Canal Cruising

The most beautiful way to get around the city is by taking a canal cruise or to rent your personal little boat. You will see the city from the waters of the historic canals: a unique perspective on this beautiful city! This is historically how all goods and products used to be transported here.

Trams are better connected than busses

Getting around by tram is a great alternative; public transport while still taking in the sights :) There are many connecting tramlines throughout the city and trams run so frequently that you won’t have to worry about missing your connection until close to midnight. Bring cash to buy tickets in any tram for 2,5hrs or buy a card and charge it with money to use any type of public transportation at a cheaper rate. Trams do not ride during the night but there are some night busses that will still bring you where you need to be.
