Hello De Pijp
Where the Jordaan is historic and the Museum District is cultural, de Pijp is where you go in Amsterdam to shop, eat well and, in particular, drink beer: the Heineken Experience almost acts the gateway to the neighborhood when walking from the center of the city. The colorful Albert Cuyp Market is a great spot for picking up any toiletries that you might have forgotten or a bottle of freshly-squeezed orange juice if you’re in need of vitamin C. Herons swoop in at the end of the day to pick up anything left behind by the fish stall, which is your cue to find some dinner of your own. You won’t be short of options, either – from cavernous Middle Eastern restaurants to tiny Surinamese eateries, de Pijp ticks all the right boxes for foodies. You can then look forward to joining a youthful Dutch crowd on a bar crawl around the Gerard Douplein and devouring glasses of Heineken and plates of 'bitterballen' long into the night.
