It’s best to always view the locations on Google Maps for the best route from A to B.
start your walking route through Amsterdam Jordaan / Westerpark
Apple pie at the Noordermarket
Start at Winkel43, where you can pick up a piece of the tastiest apple pie in Amsterdam, and believe us, you want to try this one several times. Then walk around the Noordermarkt, where you can find a market every Monday and Saturday morning. The arrangement of the stalls may differ slightly in connection with Corona. You’ll find a lot of things here! Oysters, the best cheese and other high-class culinary products. Normally on Mondays there are also a number of pieces of second-hand finds and antiques.
On the way to the Westerpark
After the Noordermarkt, you will walk through the Westerstraat to the Frederik Hendrik Plantsoen, cross the water via the Hall bridge and continue to the Van Hallstraat. At the beginning of this street Vegetarian Streetfood spot Vleesch Noch Visch will be a tasty spot for take-away lunch. At the end of the Van Hallstraat you will find the Restaurant Café Amsterdam with coffee, madeleines and toasted sandwiches TO GO on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 to 16:00. Continue to westerpark.

When you walk into westerpark turn right left. First get a coffee or other drink to go! Pacific Amsterdamis always a nice hotspot. With a lovely terrace! And now on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 12:00 to 20:00 open for take out. Then you walk through the Polonceaukade towards the Ton Ton Club and via the Gosschalklaan along the Gashouder. Let’s take a moment to think about all the good parties you’ve had there! Mussel & Gin is an address to remember when the catering industry is open again. They recently created a new terrace. Turn left onto Klönne Square and walk all the way to the Westergas terrace and walk through the path all the way to the back of the park along the water towards the direction of the center. You will eventually arrive at the Conscious Hotel and De Bakkerswinkel where you can get something to go if you feel like it. From here you walk towards haarlemmerplein.
End your walk at Amsterdam Jordaan / Westerpark
Hotspot street Haarlemmerdijk
From haarlemmerplein you walk up the vibrant Haarlemmerdijk. The Haarlemmerdijk and haarlemmerstraat, together the [category cat=”5775″ text=” Haarlemmerbuurt”], are the streets where you will find a nice mix of shops and food. You will find many vintage shops and coffee spots, such as: VINNIES, Coffee & Such, Marbles Vintage and Jutka & Riska.Despite the fact that almost everything is now closed, this street is still a lot of fun to walk through. For example, you can get something tasty to go at Ibericus or Petit Gateau. Walk down the street to the Herenmarkt and walk through the Brouwersgracht back to the Noordermarkt where the walk started.
