Join us in the Eastern Docklands to explore the city with our cool guided walk app. We’ll be waiting for you with a snack at the start!
Since we can only be in groups of maximum 4, we unfortunately cannot do guided tours with 15 people as you’re used to from us. Luckily, we have developed a fun app, so that you can enjoy the walk in a small-group setting. Either join with friends, with whomever you meet on the day off, or even just by yourself.
Note iPhone users: the app is only available in the App Store for iPhone users. Download here: https://apps.apple.com/nl/app/weekly-walk-amsterdam/id1531573143?l=en
Note Android users: we have a solution for you as well, although it is a small workaround. But you are more than welcome to join as well!
This route through the Oostelijk Havengebied (the Eastern Docklands), shows off some of the finest and quirkiest of Amsterdam’s architectural landmarks: the perfect place to see Dutch urban design come to life. The area’s been in a state of rapid change since it’s initial construction in the 19th century. Disuse in the 1970s led to many of the buildings in the docklands being destroyed, but thankfully, as artists and squatters moved in, many of the iconic spaces were saved. In the 1990s, the city of Amsterdam massively regenerated the area for residential use. The resulting delightfully vibrant collection of old and new buildings along the waterfront with intriguing architectural stories are just waiting for us to explore!
This walk is not about showing you the most obvious spots, though. It’s an intimate walk, trying to point out some of the meaningful and fun details that are easily overlooked.
We will be waiting for you at the start and end of the tour. We’ll get you started with a small snack, a small fun challenge, and share some tips & tricks for the app.
This tour is donation-based (cash, debit or credit card, or Tikkie).
Hope to meet you there,
Vince & Stephan
