Conscious shopping in Amsterdam Nieuw-West

Cycle the route through surprising Nieuw-West, and visit social enterprises that have a positive impact on society or the environment. There’s a sustainable beach pavilion, a tempting recycling shop, and a brewery that provides employment opportunities to locals with learning difficulties. And you can stop off for a tasty veggie burger, an anti-waste meal or a scrumptious high tea.

How to get there

The route runs from Overtoomseveld via the Sloterplas and Osdorp to De Aker, and ends in Slotervaart. It’s actually designed as a cycle route, but some of the addresses are within walking distance of a metro station on Line 50.
