What to do in Amsterdam: cool, fun and off the beaten path ideas

You are visiting Amsterdam and you want to see more than the super famous spots? Then check out this article and experience the city like a local with me! I lived in Amsterdam for 2 years, and I am happy to share with you some activities that are underrated and not the obvious touristy things. So, if you are wondering what to do in Amsterdam, here are some cool, fun and off the beaten path ideas!

What to do in Amsterdam – here is an off the beaten path idea: exploring NDSM Wharf! NDSM Wharf used to be one of the biggest shipyards in the world. It’s located in the borough of Amsterdam-Noord. NDSM comes from the Nederlandsche Dok en Scheepsbouw Maatschappij (I know it’s hard to pronounce if you are not Dutch 😉 ), the shipbuilding company building and repairing ships at this place from the 1920s until 1984. In the 1990s the shipyard was mostly occupied by squatters, and in the 2000s it became a cultural incubator center. Since them, this area is very trendy, cool, edgy and artsy.

Things to do in NDSM

There are many cool things to do in NDSM! Here are some ideas:

  • Wander inside the huge industrial building of NDSM loods, the creative space of around 400 artists, designers, architects and designers. Address: NDSM-Plein 85, 1033 WC Amsterdam.
  • Grab a drink and something to eat at Pllek and enjoy the views on the sand in front of the IJ river. The menu is made with great quality organic products and offers some vegan options. There are often bands playing music and artists being exhibited. Address: T.T. Neveritaweg 59, 1033 WB Amsterdam.
  • Grab a drink and something to eat at Noorderlicht Café, a greenhouse with boho vibes and enjoy the views on the grass in front of the IJ river. The menu is healthy and responsible with vegan options. Musicians and artists are often performing here. Address: NDSM-Plein 102, 1033 WB Amsterdam.
  • Admire the cool street art everywhere (there is a giant mural of Anne Frank for example!).
  • Hunt for treasures in the biggest and most unique flea market in Europe. It happens once a month in the IJ-hallen. Address: T.T. Neveritaweg 15, 1033 WB Amsterdam.
  • Stay in a 5-star suite on top of a crane: check out Faralda Crane Hotel. Address: NDSM-Plein 78, 1033 WB Amsterdam.
  • Stay in a 3-star hotel room aboard a boat: check out Botel. Address: NDSM-Pier 3, 1033 RG Amsterdam.

How to go to NDSM

Location: NDSM is located at the North of Amsterdam behind Central Station, across the IJ River.

To get there you can take the free GVB ferry behind Central Station. You will find it on the left-hand side, follow “NDSM” (line 906). It runs every 15 minutes at peak hours, and every 30 minutes otherwise. It takes around 15 minutes and you can enjoy the view. You can check out the timing of the boat on google map (check NDSM-werf in English, or here GVB Ferry line 906 Central Station – NDSM.

My secret tip: You can go on the boat with your bike if you have one. It will make this area easier to explore and you will be able to see more stuff! The area is quite big.

Stroll in the trendy De Pijp

What to do in Amsterdam – here is a fun idea: strolling in De Pijp! De Pijp is a trendy neighborhood located at the south of downtown on the other side of the canal belt (but still very close to the city center). The ambiance there is lively and welcoming! I actually used to live in De Pijp and I absolutely loved it!

Wandering inside Hortus is like wandering in a tropical jungle! If you spend some time here, you will feel like inside a green oasis, and you will even forget that you are in Amsterdam!

It’s composed of a garden and 3 greenhouses.

I used to love going shopping here, wandering around, or stopping for a drink and something to eat. I recommend you go up and down the street and also enjoy the banks of the 3 canals.

Admire the 7 Houses Zevenlandenhuizen

What to do in Amsterdam – here is an off the beaten path idea: admiring the beautiful Zevenlandenhuizen! The Zevenlandenhuizen are known in English as the Houses of Seven Countries. It is a row of 7 residential houses, each of them representing the architectural style of a different European country (England, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Italy and Holland). They were built by the architect Tjeerd Kuipers in 1894. They are not so famous, but they are magnificent! You can find them close to Vondelpark and Museumplein.

  • House number 20 is Germany, in a romantic style, characterized by its large gothic arched window and romantic tower.
  • At number 22 you will find France, inspired by the Renaissance style of the Châteaux (castles) of the Loire Valley.
  • Spain is represented by house number 24 and was influenced by the Islamic Moors style (like in Andalusia). This is my personal favorite!
  • Number 26 represents Italy: it’s like a palazzo in a neo-classic style.
  • House number 28 for Russia will remind you of the buildings in the Red Square in Moscow: check out its onion shaped dome!
  • Number 30 stands for the Netherlands with a Dutch Renaissance style (dark red bricks and white ornamentation above the windows).
  • Lastly at number 30A, you will find a house looking like an English cottage: this is the English one.


You will anyway recognize them quickly as the names of the countries are written on the houses!

My secret tip: The cool thing is that you can even stay in one of them for the night! The English house is a charming 2 stars hotel. More info: Quentin England

Location: Roemer Visscherstraat nr 20 – 30, 1054 EZ Amsterdam.

Enjoy the views from the Rooftop of NEMO Science Museum

What to do in Amsterdam – here is a fun idea: enjoying the views from the rooftop of NEMO! NEMO Science Museum located close by Central Station offers a really cool panorama terrace! NEMO is the largest science and technology center in the Netherlands. You will recognize it immediately as it looks like a giant copper-green boat.

Perched at the top of this 22m high ship hull, you will find the highest city square in the Netherlands!

From up there you get to enjoy breathtaking views of Amsterdam, but also a restaurant and the open-air exhibition Energetica. This exhibition highlights the interplay between man and the elements. You can find out about the sun, wind and sustainable energy in a very interactive way! This is really cool for kids, but also for adults 🙂 .

To access the terrace simply climb up the steps on the eastern edge of the building.

My secret tip: I recommend you this place in summer when it’s warm outside. As there is a cascade and some water, it’s very pleasant!

Location: Oosterdok 2, 1011 VX Amsterdam.

Opening hours: every day from 10:00 to 17.30. As long as corona measures apply, it’s accessible free of charge to museum visitors, but if you do not have a museum ticket you must pay a €3.50 entrance fee. It’s closed when the weather is bad.

More info: NEMO rooftop.

Wander in the hip Haarlemmerbuurt

What to do in Amsterdam – here is a cool idea: wandering in Haarlemmerbuurt! Haarlemmerbuurt is the neighborhood located on the West side of Central Station. This quirky area is incredibly hip! It’s a great place to go shopping, have a drink or get something to eat.

Stroll in Westerdok in Haarlemmerbuurt

Westerdok in Amsterdam

This is my secret tip: Haarlemmerbuurt is quite lively, but there is also a part of that area that is quieter and perfect for a walk far from the crowd. Go to Westerdok, and you will find many traditional houses along the canal. It’s very photogenic and peaceful!

    All these places look so cool! We visited some of these spots in Amsterdam but there is still plenty of things to do there!

    I’ve been to Amsterdam twice now so next time I would really like to do some of the off the beaten track stuff next time. The Westerdock area looks gorgeous. I would also really like to have a drink on the rooftop at the W. The views look gorgeous and I am a sucker for rooftops!

    I’ve been to Amsterdam several times but only for a max of 48 hours between flights. While I love the Canal District and Jordaan, I know there is so much more to discover. I’m saving your post for my next AMS visit! So many cool suggestions!

      Amsterdam is such a charming city Marguerite! It worth staying a few days to explore a bit, I hope you can do that soon!
