An amzing tour Emilie took us today through the history of Amsterdam in WWII in a very personal & sensitive way. We thought that we were familiar with the main facts, but we were wrong. Don't miss this tour !

Why are some of the monuments triangular? What is behind the costs of arms on the WW2 memorial? Why are carrots orange? Peter is your man. Highly recommended. Thank you for an enjoyable walk today.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
