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.

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.

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.
