‘The art of travel is feeling at home everywhere you go’

Travelling with tips from locals

Travel is one of my favourite activities, and city trips in particular. Like everyone I have my favourite cities: Paris, Bangkok, as well as Amsterdam. I know them fairly well now and it’s only now that I realise how much time it took me to get to know these cities. I spent hours, days trawling through them to discover the great neighbourhoods, hotels, restaurants and cafés. Often I only found them with tips from the locals.

This is why I like writing for – it allows visitors to Holland to find the right information and get to the best places quickly. I would like to offer a few tips for hidden cafés in Amsterdam that you won’t easily find as a tourist, but which are definitely worth a visit.

My tip:

Proeflokaal Wynand Fockink. Try the old Amsterdam liqueurs in a 400 year old distillery. It is in a well hidden spot near Dam square. Other great sports are In 't Aepjen on the Zeedijk or The Tara on the Nes.

Give Sander some input and he turns it into a great article. About cities, beaches, museums or events – you name it.
