At first you think your just walking around streets of houses, but you soon discover that every 2 minutes your passing a semi hidden away restaurant, bubbling with a cozy atmosphere, and laughter. I recommend finding one called The Burger, it is small cozy full of locals, and I think one of the best fillet steaks I've ever had... Remember... More

It was a great experience. Tijs is a good narrator, is very knowledgeable and it was fun to have him as a tour guide. We discovered the culture, the music and very special spots in this authentical neighbourhood. Thanks Tijs!

Tijs made the 2-hour tour engaging with interesting facts and cool stories. He even brought along historical maps and figures to help contextualize the sites we currently see in Amsterdam architecture and canal structure. I'd certainly take another tour with Old Amsterdam Tours!

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
