Join the 2h guided walk at Marken & Kadijken in the center and finish with a drink.
This week we invite you to be transported back to Amsterdam’s booming industrial past as you discover the neighborhoods of Marken and Kadijken. Since the middle of the 17th century, these areas of the city have been home to everything from vast warehouses to pumping engine rooms. Its fascinating history and industrious past lives on in the striking architecture and historic monuments that have been left in its wake, many of them having been repurposed as contemporary working, living and dining spaces. And if all that wasn’t enough to reel you in, how about the chance to spot some zebras and giraffes along the way?
This walk is not about showing you the most obvious spots, though. It’s an intimate walk, trying to point out some of the meaningful and fun details that are easily overlooked.
The guide will share recommendations for lunch, dinner, beers, and coffee along the way so you can visit again later.
This tour is donation-based (cash, debit or credit card, or Tikkie).
Hope to meet you there,
