Around Town: Amsterdam Favorites Map

Amsterdam's unique atmosphere is evident in the renewal of old spaces with bold, new ideas. Along with important cultural and historical sites, there's an ever growing list of quirky spots to discover around the city.

Whether you prefer cozy corners, rough, industrial spaces or prefer to nestle in the grass under a tree, there are so many different ways to take in the sounds and scenic views of Amsterdam. I'm on a constant quest to find great places and discover a different perspective of the city.

After a few years of sharing my personal discoveries of Amsterdam through my blog, I'm often questioned for suggestions on what to see, eat and enjoy around the city. So, I recently teamed up with KLM to create an Amsterdam map with some of my favorite spots. This list includes great ways to engage with Amsterdam's rich history, along with excellent locations to sip a local brew, discover new tastes or catch up with friends to watch the world go by.

Late summer is a perfect time to enjoy all that Amsterdam has to offer and the flat city is easy to explore by bike, foot or boat. Feel free to share your favorite things to do, I'm always looking for new spots to discover a different view of Amsterdam.

Check out my map below and get exploring!

This map was made in collaboration with KLM who provide flights to the city.  
Come and explore Amsterdam!


  1. Hi! I am a fellow expat (in Stockholm now for a year and was in St. Petersburg Russia the 3 years prior to Sweden), originally from Canada. I found your blog via expatblogs and immediately fell in love with it - I laughed out loud more times than I can count (and found someone else who takes chili flakes out to restaurants. I am not alone!). I read the whole blog in a few hours and and now caught up and have to wait for updates like the rest of the people now. Anyhow, thanks for your blog, and I hope you have time to update amongst all your masters work.

  2. This pictures are very wonderfully shot and glad that you shared it with us..
