What You'll Do
  • Discover Amsterdam’s alternative scene, and take in squats and street art
  • Learn about 1960s counterculture, the Provo movement, and the White Bicycle Plan
  • Visit the city's most famous coffee shop
Experience Amsterdam’s alternative scene and hear the stories behind the city’s coffee shops, houseboats, bikes, and squats. You’ll learn about sub-cultures and drug policies, and encounter the real Amsterdam on this guided walk.
What to Expect
Amsterdam is a city like no other, known for its iconic landmarks and monuments and also for its coffee shops, bicycles, and prostitution.

As you’ll learn on this 2-hour guided walk the city is also well known for its liberal laws, alternative housing arrangements, and being the first in the world to recognize marriage equality.

Delve into the alternative scene that makes Amsterdam a must-visit destination for visitors interested in sub-cultures. Explore such facets of Amsterdam society as the post-WWII housing crisis that led to the phenomenon of living in boats or in squats, and the counter-culture movements that developed into today’s unmatched cityscape of unique coffee shops and street art.

This is an opportunity to experience an authentic side of Amsterdam that’s not typically included in traditional city tours.
