WHAT TO DO
What to do during the 'Corona Times' in Amsterdam? Well, there's plenty of cool stuff you can do, so here are a few suggestions!
Picnic in the park
As soon as the sun is out, locals love to go for a picnic in one of the many parks in Amsterdam! Of course, everyone knows the famous Vondelpark, but have you heard of Westerpark, Oosterpark, Sarphati park or Rembrandtpark? Grab some snacks and drinks and enjoy! Please ask reception for our take away options.
Private boat tours
What would Amsterdam be without its canals? The 17th century canal ring area is listed as one the worlds UNESCO Heritage sites, it is very unique and it is definitely worth enjoying from a boat. A private boat tour is the way to go or just do it yourself in a Mokum boat! Prices starting from 95,- for two hours.
Nine Streets District
These nine little streets are crossing the main Amsterdam canals and are covered with little boutique, vintage, design and speciality shops – something for everyone’s liking. One of the city’s most photogenic neighbourhoods.
Rent a Bike
Join the locals and hop on a bike! A great way to get around the city and experience different parts of Amsterdam! Cycle to one of the many city’s parks, go for a ride along the Amstel river or enjoy a ferry ride together with your bike to Amsterdam Noord!
Private Walking Tours
Group tours are often missing the personal touch, however, Amsterdam offers great possibilities for tailor-made individual city tours. Learn about the city from a locals perspective and hear stories you never heard before! It is also a great way to support the local tour guides!
Amsterdam offers great shopping opportunities to everyone’s liking, starting with the shopping streets Kalverstraat and Nieuwendijk, that winds through the whole centre of Amsterdam, boutique stores in the Nine streets district and on the Haarlemmerstraat. Or if you want to fancy it up, visit the Amsterdam’s fashion district – PC Hooftstraat. Warehouses and shopping malls like Bijenkorf and Magna Plaza are just a few minutes away from the hotel and corona proof. Non-essential stores like clothing shops and boutique stores must close at 5pm.
What’s a better way to get to know a city. Just get lost in the beautiful small streets along the canals and experience Amsterdam. Immerse into the Dutch architecture, have an Instagram worthy photo shoot on one of the 1753 city’s bridges or visit some of the city’s highlights, such as Museum square, Dam square or the Jordaan area.
Amsterdam offers a great variety of markets. Albert Cuyp market is a great place to try Dutch street food, like fresh stroopwafels, and buy locally produced cheese. Every Monday you can enjoy 150 different stalls at the Westerstraat market in Jordaan. But if you are into vintage findings, Waterlooplein is the place to be, as well as IJ-Hallen where they, once a month, host the biggest flea market in Europe.
Museums are open again untill 5pm, taking into consideration all the necessary safety measures. Museum square offers a variety of options, from classical art at the Rembrandt or Van Gogh museums to modern and contemporary art at the Stedelijk and Moco museums. Furthermore, Anne Frank House, Royal palace Amsterdam, Tropenmuseum, Rembrandt house, the Amsterdam museum and many more are looking forward to welcoming back the visitors. Book your tickets in advance!
