City Tours

How did Amsterdam become the Amsterdam we know today? Several neighbourhoods tell their own version of the story. The Medieval origins around the Dam in the Amstel reveals the progressive, liberal, but moreover pragmatic ‘DNA’ of Amsterdam. The revolutionary design of the Canal Ring is the showcase of Dutch 17th century urban planning and architecture. The Jordaan neighbourhood has its very own ‘working class to gentrification’ story to tell.
