Ready for a short escape from the buzzing neons and bustling streets of the Red Light District and Leidseplein? Then we got you covered.
In contrast to the historical and charming buildings in Amsterdam Centraal, the free five minute ferry over to the North side of Amsterdam brings a cutting-edge vibe filled with cool street art, warehouses and amazing waterfront terraces.
Take the ferry from Amsterdam Centraal over to NDSM Wharf and enjoy a beer or a delicious lunch in the sun at Pllek, a perfect hotspot for Spring and Summer! Prices are reasonable, varying from €6 to €15 for a tasty lunch.
Afterwards, have a stroll around this part of the city while enjoying some cool street art created by the public.
P.S. don’t be surprised if you end up dancing around a bonfire with local hippies in one of the many hidden gems ;)
