My recommendations of local places to visit in Amsterdam..

Brouwerij Het IJ

Brouwerij ‘t IJ is an Amsterdam Brewery where only speciality beers are brewed. Brown beers, blonde, white and many other types of beers. The brewery is located in the East of the city. The beer is brewed on two locations. On the Funenkade, next to Mill the Gallo, all draft beers from the Brewery brewed. In the second brewery on the Zeeburgerpad all bottle beers brewed. You can also have a guided tour or a beer tasting in the brewery.

Bath house

The bath house was formerly also a real bath house, which is still clearly visible inside. The terrace of the bath house is located right on the javaplein and is therefore perfect for in the summer when the sun is shining. You can have lunch and dinner and it is a fine place for a fine drink!

Béguinage of Amsterdam


This beautiful and cultural square was founded in the 14th century and is enclosed by the Kalverstraat, the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal and Spui. In the 17th and 18th century facades of houses were replaced, but eighteen houses still have a Gothic timber frame. There is one wooden facade, the Begijnhof Chapel in which paintings hang over the miracle of Amsterdam and the English church.

From about 1150 women started a form of religious life outside monastery all related to. They did much to health care. One can say that this is the place where the first Beguines were. Beguines were no nuns. They lived not in the confines of a monastery. They had no order founders and no eternal religious vows. They are unmarried, had a vow of chastity and obedience they were payable to the parish priest.

Also they had made no vow of poverty and so they could keep the decision on their own property. They could cancel their vows at any time and leave the Beguinage, for example, to marriage.

Blijburg aan Zee

Of course, there is no real sea in Amsterdam. But you can find an ”fake” sea at Blijburg aan Zee. Here you can swim and there are on this sandy beach often summer parties. Stay here on sunny days and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere. in the evening there is live music and DJ’s make the party complete while you cozy around the campfire.
