Although I have lived in Amsterdam for almost twenty years and have made it my job for Your Little Black Book to share my tips about the city, there is always something new to discover.

In addition to this huge list of fun things to do in Amsterdam, I will also share some things to do that are totally free of charge. For example, take a long walk! On Your Little Black Book I have worked out several walks for you in: the Jordaan, Amsterdam-North and Amsterdam-East.
Or go to an outdoor market in Amsterdam and get the tastiest snacks or taste street food from all corners of the world on the spot. For example, I like having breakfast with dim sum on the Albert Cuyp market. Or take a tour of Chinatown and shop the tastiest things at the Asian supermarkets and shops. I can also recommend making a street art tour by bike! In short: there are plenty of fun things to do in Amsterdam that are completely free. Nice to combine with one of the tips from this list for which it is useful to buy tickets in advance.
