Recommended places in Amsterdam

I’ve never been to Amsterdam and these recommendations don’t come from me. They come from football fans (I saw an off-topic thread about Amsterdam on a football mssage board). Here’s a summary of what the football fans recommended in Amsterdam:

Coffee shops:

For “coffee” Dampkring (by Dam Square) has a great selection and relaxed vibe. Don’t be afraid to ask them questions. They want you to get something that will have you coming back. Go to “De Dampkring” for the Buddha’s Sister.

Go to “The Noon” and sample the Blueberry. Go to “Katsu” for the Super Sage. Abraxis is another coffee shop that was recommended.

Barney’s is a good coffeeshop to hang out at because it serves food too. Try their Sweet Tooth. Their breakfast food was also mentioned for being good and reasonably priced.


The Anne Frank Musuem is a must and the Van Gogh is a close second. The Riks Museum was also recommnded.


Make sure you get on the trams. Once you get the hang of it, it’s easy and fun. Be careful not to get too close to the little bicycle paths that are next to the roads, the cyclists freak out if you wander there when they are about 100 feet away.


If you like Chinese food, you won’t find better food outside of Nam Kee in Chinatown. It’s better than anything I’ve had in New York.

    If you are male you might enjoy the red light district! Fourteen year olds and up prostitute there. A refreshing change from the controled society of America and you can buy Hashish there too, if you like that sort of thing.
