A modern food market housing several restaurants, varying in cuisine from Vietnamese Street Food to ‘funky’ hot dogs. Make sure you come here with a empty stomach so you can enjoy nibbles from the stalls. If you don’t want to stay and eat at one of the crowded tables, you’re in luck, as most of the stalls offer take out. Here you can also find antique markets during the weekend, a brilliant souvenir shop and a art-house cinema.

Despite its many competitors, Pllek might be the coolest restaurant and bar in Amsterdam-Noord. From a distance Pllek resembles a large collection of shipping containers, and blends in perfectly with NDSM-werf’s industrial surroundings. A golden riverside beach is hidden behind this metal façade, complete with deck-chairs, picnics tables and ultra-comfy beanbags. It is always worth checking out Pllek’s website before heading over the IJ, as they often organise open-air film nights.

This gourmet coffee bar and Nordic food hotspot is hidden away by Sarphatipark in De Pijp. Pop in for amazing coffee and say hi to their pup, Java.

Think bear sausage, fresh fish, foraged greens, and hearty Scandinavian soups. This is one of the hidden gems of Amsterdam.

Amsterdamse Bos is actually four times the size of New York’s Central Park and contains a massive variety of terrains, sporting facilities and other amenities. The park is located in Amsterdam’s southernmost suburbs and is something of a hidden gem -mainly as most tourists tend to stay within the city center. Besides its beautiful forests and glistening lakes, Amsterdamse Bos also has a large goat farm that can be visited without charge. The farm lets its herds roam freely and most of its inhabitants are exceptionally friendly.

A newer Amsterdam park, Westerpark used to be the property of the Wester Gasfabriek, a coal-fired gas power plant. After its closure in the late 1960s, the area lay derelict for years and became a not-so-nice place to be. In the 1990s squatters and artists moved in, followed by the city of Amsterdam. They decided to clean up the pollution and make a lovely park on the property, and they did an amazing job! The redevelopment has given the area a great gentrification boost and brought a lot of life to the neighborhood.
