AMSTERDAM: EAT SEE PLAY SHOP

Amstelpark

We love taking the kids over to the Amstelpark for a walk and a play in the big playground. It’s also a great spot for a summery picnic —  in the quiet areas close to the river we’ve often seen rabbits hopping around our picnic blanket! Amstelpark also has a sweet little city farm and a ‘train’ that will drive you around the park and which the kids obviously love. There are a few places where you can have a drink and a snack but I prefer taking the kids to @7 on the Scheldestraat for lunch or a coffee (or for an ice cream next door in summer).

I always find something to my taste at Meys & Co! There's a good selection of classic styles mixed with more fashionable footwear, and ...

EAT
Restaurant As -- pure food
One of my favourite restaurants in Amsterdam is Restaurant As. Located in a modern chapel on the edge of the Beatrix Park, this is slow food at its best! The cooks use organic, seasonal food from local sources and are big on treating the food the way it should be treated, so that it tastes exactly ...
