Amsterdam Streets and Lesser-Known Neighbourhoods

Join your (very) small group at the Central Station; there’s a max of eight people, so it is always an intimate experience. Your guide is a professional guide with a license and also a local from Amsterdam who is very knowledgeable.

Start at the Prinseniland and see the neighborhood’s most striking monuments, markets, street art hotspots, and little-known local haunts. Learn whether or not this colorful micro sub inspired The Beatles, either way, it certainly makes for some good photos. See the submarine which is just one of the hundreds of boats moored on Prinseneiland.

Many are classic wooden sailing craft or barges, and the wharf-lined docks are a bustling place to investigate on foot. The area attracts many artists, and it has a lot to offer visitors. See the picturesque and costly homes which in the past were all warehouses, used for storing the goods that came from Amsterdam’s port.

Continue onto the Joordan which is Amsterdam’s most famous neighborhood. Watch how the gentrification of decades has worked to attract more galleries, restaurants, specialty shops and upwardly-mobile residents to its higgledy-piggledy picturesque streets.

Follow your guide to 9 Straat Canals, Amsterdam’s 17th-century canal ring area and enjoy one of the marvels of the world’s architecture. Learn as your guide documents the history of this unique urban development.

Take pictures of these nine picturesque alleyways in the Amsterdam canal belt. In the heart of Unesco’s World Heritage, just behind Dam Square and on the way from Anne Frank to Rijksmuseum De 9 Straatjesis the ideal neighborhood to get to know Amsterdam in all its variety and richness.

The area offers a great overview of the architectural style of Amsterdam heritage. After 400 years it is still very lively with artisanal businesses, hidden cafes, hotspot restaurants and galleries, and a unique offer of specialized and authentic shops.
