Join the 2h guided walk in the Transvaalbuurt in East and finish with a drink.
This area was predominantly a Jewish proletariat area up until WWII for, e.g. diamond workers. When most of the original residents never returned after being deported during the war, the area became a multicultural and “problem” neighborhood, Transvaalbuurt received economic stimulation in 2007 to improve the livability and safety. As we walk through this area, we show you these ‘stimulation areas’: playgrounds with African animals, community gardens, book exchanges, and the placards of the Outside Museum for extra information.
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,
