Quote from: Gurke and Hare on July 03, 2022, 01:32:50 AMIf you're going to go to lots of museums/galleries check out the I amsterdam city card which covers most of the main stuff and can save a decent amount - it also acts as a travel card.

Quote from: dr beat on July 03, 2022, 12:26:11 PMLike cheese? Amsterdam Cheese Museum is really a shop with a perfunctory museum in the basement, but lots of free samples and some interesting stuff. Staff seemed friendly too.Dont like cheese? I wouldn't go.

Quote from: shoulders on July 03, 2022, 09:42:30 AMFinally, other pubs I heard are very good but haven't got around to visiting:Twee ZwantjesBlauwe ParadeCafe Brecht - I like this place. It's a Berlin-style 'living room' cafe with Jever and Weihenstephan on tap. Gets very busy though.Thiejssen - Amazing interior (it used to be an olde worlde apothecary), good atmosphere, nice terrace, decent menu but often staffed by very pretty, bored students who couldn't give a toss and take ages to serve you, assuming they even got your order right.Papeneiland - Just around the corner from Thijssen. One of the most quaint cafes at a stunning location at the junction of two canals. It's so picturesque you'll see it on a lot of postcards. But in my opinion, the cafe itself is really nothing special. Sure is pretty though.HegeraadBlaffende Vis - Not bad, but nothing to go out of your way for. It's a bit of an institution and popular with a younger crowd. A hotspot on sunny days and around King's Day.De Reiger - Love this place. Art deco interior, lovely staff, great food.Cafe ChrisCafe ChaosGouden FlorijnDe PelsL'Affiche - A little off the tourist track but not far out of the centre and it's a really cosy and slightly funky place with a bit of a Belgian twist. A great cafe.EijldersDe Zotte - One of the first / only dedicated Belgian bars in the city. It's fantastic, and they have great food, but it's so tiny that you'll likely need to book a table for dinner if you fancy being able to sit down.Cafe PieperHeuvelBerkhoutFoedersGruterWellingHesp
