Amsterdam walking tour

The tour also visits the popular Jordaan district. Once a working-class neighbourhood where typical folk culture flourished in the narrow streets and small houses, the Jordaan has now turned into a favoured destination for students and artists and has grown into a trendy hotspot over the years. At Dam Square, you can marvel at the magnificent Royal Palace. Nearby is the Begijnhof, a tranquil courtyard surrounded by dwellings – former almshouses for religious women – from the 16th, 17th and 18th century, including a wooden house that dates back to 1528. The tour then swings by De Wallen, Amsterdam’s Red Light District, where the guide will tell you stories that you wouldn’t hear anywhere else. And last, but not least, participants will have the opportunity to sample some typical Dutch delicacies.
