In our earlier posts, much was said about the famous Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein. While those are the go-to entertainment districts in Amsterdam. There are other neighborhoods in the city that are worth visiting.
This is where a majority of museums in the Amsterdam can be found. The famous “iamsterdam” sign can also be found here. If you are into culture and want to know more about Dutch history, Van Gogh, Anne Frank, contemporary art and the like, you definitely want to visit museumplein.
This is the central square in Amsterdam. It has the palace of the Monarchy, the National monument, A huge protestant church and of course there are shops with lots of touristy goods and cafes where you can sit and relax after a long day of walking around the city.
This is more of an entire neighborhood and has both Leidseplein and Vondelpark in it. However in the Vondelpark area, especially, in and around overtoom street there are sprinklings or bars and cafes hidden in plain sight so you might want to check those out.
De Pijp translates to “the pipe” in english and is a neighborhood located to the south of the city center. It also has a sprinkling of bars and cafe’s that are not as concentrated as Leidseplein or Rembrandtplein but we believe they are worth checking out. De Pijp is also home to the “Albert Cuyp” Market which attracts a good deal of tourists. De Pijp is a also one of the most diverse neighborhoods in Amsterdam which a lot of Immigrant Dutch have chosen to call home. As a result of the diversity that has come to define De Pijp, it is one of the more interesting neighborhoods in Amsterdam. In De Pijp, you also want to take a look at Marie Heinekenplein which is a small square in the area that has some bars and cafes.
Well that concludes our party-trail of Amsterdam. Don’t get off the trail just yet. We are off to the Netherland’s best kept secret.
