Amsterdam has a variety of places to captivate you. Some of them very curious. If you already enjoyed your visit to the Moco Museum, we invite you to know other very particular places in this beautiful city. We assure you that you will not get bored. It is difficult to choose the best options after your visit to the Amsterdam museum, but we are going to talk about some very singular ones. Let’s start with the Albert Cuyp Market. With an average of 260 market stalls, it is the largest market in the Netherlands. You can find this fun and particular market in the De Pijp neighborhood. The best part is the excellent prices and variety of products offered for sale. It is an excellent option to enjoy Amsterdam’s own products, aromas and flavors. It is well known that “the way to someone’s heart is through the stomach.”.
Places you never imagined to visit
There are many parts of the world that have unimaginable surprises. Amsterdam is not far behind. Surely you will think that there are not many places that can surprise you. Think twice. In this curious city there is The Cat Boat (Poezenboot). Do you like cats? Imagine seeing a cat sanctuary floating on an Amsterdam houseboat. If you want to come across this particular place, you must go to Singel 38.G. Don’t forget to leave a donation for the cute kitties. Another curious place to visit is the Sea Level Indicator in City Hall. In case you didn’t know, Amsterdam and much of the Netherlands is protected by dunes and dikes. This is because they are below sea level. Here you can see the sea levels in large tubes at the ports of Ijmuiden and Vlissingen.
Eccentric curiosities only for eccentrics
Here we are going to talk about two different tastes. Although Amsterdam has a special place for everyone, we are going to mention only two on this occasion. The first one is the Max Euwe Centre (Chess Museum). If you are a chess lover, this is your place. This museum honors the former Dutch grandmaster Max Euwe (1901-1981). If you want to join in with other chess enthusiasts, we are waiting for you on Max Euweplein (between Leidseplein and Vondelpark). Finally, if you want to learn a bit about cannabis, we invite you to the Cannabis College. You can get free information and advice on the recreational, medicinal and industrial use of cannabis and hemp plants. Come to the Oudezijds Achterburgwal 124 to see their organic, fully flowering public cannabis garden. We are sure it is an experience you will not forget.
