Amsterdam Noord City tour
Start your tour at the Amsterdam Centraal Station, where you can rent a perfect bike for your day cruise. Don’t be scared of crazy traffic! The district you will go to is absolutely safe for cycling.
After that, just like locals, you will jump on the ferry, that will bring you to the opposite side of the city, previously known as an industrial area of Amsterdam. The ferry travel will last 10 minutes only. In the meantime, the Amsterdam tour guide would like to show you beautiful view on Eye museum, Amsterdam Toren, a building designed by Mvrdv and other unusual architectural projects.
During your cycling tour, you will find out why this industrial district was developed into one of the most fashionable and beloved places for locals. Together with the guide, you will discover how rusty construction crane was turned into a luxury hotel or port containers, ferries and old trams into lovely comfortable apartments, art galleries or cozy bars. In one of those bars, the guide would like to offer you a little break, so you could enjoy a lovely carrot cake and incredible panoramic view, accompanied by stories about Dutch innovations, social projects, cultural life, subsidies and many others.
After, the guide would like to show you some other local sights, such as former shipyard turned into creative space with workshops; modern architecture; floating sustainable housing; eco-village and a little 3D-printed house, partly built of potato peel!
Finish your inspiring adventure at the Centraal Station, where you can leave your bikes.
