Alternative Amsterdam Tour
  • English English
  • 2 hours

Amsterdam is famous for its coffee shops and liberal laws. Embark on a 2-hour walking tour of the city and learn all about its alternative scene. 

Alternative Amsterdam Tour

Head to the National Monument on Dam Square, in the city centre, from where you will begin your tour by foot.

Accompanied by an expert English-speaking guide, discover what makes this city different from all the rest. Learn about its history as you wander towards its canals and find out about Provo, the Dutch counterculture movement, founded in 1965. Unlike other proposals contrary to the established social order, its activists would use humour to challenge the authorities.

Your guide will also reveal the origin of boathouses in Amsterdam, an alternative housing arrangement to try and solve the serious housing crisis that affected the city after the Second World War.

You will also admire the city’s most stunning street art as you stroll through its historic centre and finally, learn about the history of its coffee shops.

Ticket to the MoCo Museum

Complete the experience with a ticket to the MoCo Museum, the Amsterdam Museum of Modern, Contemporary and Street Art. This ticket gives you access to the best modern art in the city, with exhibits by Banksy, Warhol and other big names in the world of contemporary art.
