Hidden gems of Amsterdam and unknown places in the capital of the Amsterdam. (What you need to know or might not see.)
These best kept secrets of the capital are slightly out of the box, so plse be aware…;)

Why a hidden treasure in the city is more than a spectacle.

Even this street art Nightwatch is a hidden gem, as there is a market of front of it, except for….;)

Not only is it nice to be surprised by the city, but exploring also takes you to much quieter places.

Your tour becomes relaxed in the city. Most of the locals, the people of Amsterdam in those parts of the city, also love that you come. They might have a story for you about the hidden gem of Amsterdam where you are located.

A lot of the best kept secrets on this tour guide page are to be found in the emerging quarters of this compelling town: the East and the North.
For example: the first picture of my new Amsterdam’s hidden treasures  Instagram account ⇓ contains a cool house in AMS-North, on the so-called Nieuwendammerdijk. (Plse pronounce the name in your room. ;)
