Our adventure starts on the ferry. We cross the IJ and set foot ashore in the northern part of the city. For years, this part was seen as the ugly duckling. The term ‘North disturbed’, is therefore a common statement.
Join us however and be pleasantly surprised – hopefully at the end of your tour you’ll sayand be surprised and hopefully you say :
In the past Noord The Disturbed, now The Better Place!
We delve in to the heart of the neighborhood, visiting the local market where your senses will be bombarded by a host of delicacies – not to mention ice cream where you’ll find the very best ice cream parlor the North of Amsterdam has to offer.
Distinctly different to the ring of canals you’ll find in the centre of Amsterdam, the North offers you a host of different canals interspersed with small, beautiful wooden country houses allied with a great diversity of architectural styles typical of the 1920s & 1930s.
Further on your tour, you’ll discover the bired district with memories of the first world war in wich this area was built. From ‘Amsterdam School’ to ‘Berlage’ architecture styles together with a whole host of urban street art.
The North really does have everything to capture and hold your attention: from unexpected uber trendy restaurants hidden on industrial estates to small ports housing various shipyards, greenery galore and the all-important ‘real Amsterdam cosiness’.
Discover the surprising Amsterdam-North with our cheerful guides who will be happy to introduce you to a part of the north normally overlooked.
This really is the ideal tour to find out more about the north and find out for yourself just why this place is so popular!
Tip: If you book the North Sunny side up tour (bicycle tour), you’ll also get to see NDSM Warf: the festival and cultural site of North. If you want to see more Dutch green: book Rural Noord tour.
