Me and some colleagues did The Vault. It’s an exciting escape room with lot’s of challenges to overcome. Word of advice though: don’t go in on an empty stomach like I did. Becoming hangry does not make you better at escaping, I can tell.

Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some

There are some parts of the puzzle which won’t be reachable, but if the person is in a group, there’s still a lot to do.
