Tips from Amsterdam Locals

No matter how many guide books you read or how many websites you visit, it is impossible to be informed about all the highlights and secret spots in Amsterdam. In the tips section of Amsterdam-Now you will find suggestions and recommendations from locals for tourists.

Amsterdam means so much more than the Canal Belt, Red Light District and Van Gogh Museum. Did you know that in winter you can ice-skate at Museumplein or sunbathe at the terrace or NEMO museum in summer? In this section you will find insiders' tips from locals. Amsterdam is a very budget-friendly city: lunch concerts, a tiny portrait gallery and ferries to Amsterdam-Noord are all free of charge. Be aware that coffeeshops are not the same as coffeebars, let a local explain to you the difference and read below 'Amsterdam and Coffeeshops'.
