T-8 DAYS

AMSTERDAM, WE'RE ON OUR WAY
 FOR ONE DAY ONLY

16.03.2019 | GASHOUDER, WESTERGASFABRIEK

SATURDAY - SORTED. SUNDAY PLANS? WELL, THAT IS ONE HECK OF A QUESTION...

CONTRARY TO BELIEF, THERE IS ACTUALLY MORE TO AMSTERDAM THAN JUST AN ABUNDANCE OF CANALS AND BICYCLES. 
HERE TO TALK YOU THROUGH THE HIDDEN SPOTS OF HER HOMETOWN; GYMSHARK ATHLETE: NOCHTLI GIVES US THE INSIDERS GUIDE TO VISITING AMSTERDAM...

THINGS TO DO, PLACES TO SEE 

HEINEKEN MUSEUM

Home to the famous green Dutch bottle, Heineken's self-guided experience is designed to provide something a little more than your average beer-and-hops learning experience. 

With a constantly evolving multimedia exhibit, past experiences have included virtually cycling through the streets of Amsterdam and watching the life cycle of beer in a 4D adventure, as you shoot through pipes and become one of the worlds most enjoyed beverages. Believe us, you were definitely still sober reading that...

All in all, it's an unforgettable experience...take that as you will.

MOCO MUSEUM 

Highlighting the phenomenon that is contemporary art with the likes of Banksy and Salvador Dalí adorning all walls, the Moco Museum is nothing short of a masterpiece. 

We'd be lying if we said it didn't take a whole day of research to realise that MOCO actually stands for 'Modern Contemporary'... it's got to be worth a visit, right?

BLOEMENMARKT

No longer deemed as mere romanticism, but more of a necessity, the famous flower market offers up a plethora of blooms year-round. 

The market has now settled on-land and remains a must-see location for not only the tourists, but locals too.

VONDELPARK

A private park for the wealthy until the early 50s, Vondelpark now occupies a special place in Amsterdam's heart. It's a magical escape, but also supplies a busy social scene, encompassing cycle ways, pristine lawns, quaint cafes, footbridges and winding footpaths.

On a sunny day, an open-air party atmosphere ensues when tourists, cyclists, in-lane skaters, pram-pushing parents, cartwheeling children and champagne-swilling picnickers, all come out to play.
