Alternative Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a city like no other. Famous for coffeeshops, bicycles and prostitution, the city is also renowned for its liberal laws, alternative housing arrangements and being the first in the world to recognize marriage equality.

Join us as we delve into the alternative scene that makes Amsterdam a must-visit destination for people the world over. We explore the origins of these facets of Amsterdam society, such as the post-WWII housing crisis that began today’s current phenomenon of living in boats or in squats, or the counter-culture movements that developed into today’s unmatched atmosphere, such as the city’s most famous coffeeshop, and the street art hidden in the city center.

This is the real Amsterdam – the side of the city that locals love, and that visitors come to experience. This tour is a must for anyone wanting to really experience this unique city!
