  • Start your walk day and finish there at dusk when the lights of the plush interiors lights. The show and beautiful, the architectures are worth visiting. Then arrested you at a Brown Café for drinks before dinner (in moderation).

  • The Joordaan is warm, soft-spoken full of colors and channels filled houseboats of different styles and colors ... not to be missed. A neighborhood where you can find the beautiful retro Café where you can stroll around and negotiate as a pleasure

  • This neighborhood is a must-see. It's a calm neighborhood with nice landscapes. The view of the canals and dutch houses is stunning.
