De Pijp Amsterdam (Deutsche)

Die Sommerferien nähern sich dem Ende; die meisten Kinder sind wieder in der Schule; der Altag trudelt langsam wieder ein…

Hier, in Amsterdam, genießen wir die Spätsommerhitze und gutes Wetter. Filmfestivals in Open Air Kinos, schwüle Abende in Amsterdam Roest, oder ein spontaner Abstecher zu den Foodhallen – der Tag füllt sich schnell, mit so vielen Sachen die man machen könnte.

An Tagen wie diesen halte ich mich vom Centrum, Rijksmuseum und Anne Frank Haus fern und genieße anstatt die gute Stimmung im Süden von Amsterdam. Der Vondelpark ist zwar wunderschön, aber bei gutem Wetter auch … Read more

The Hidden Gem Coffeeshops of Amsterdam

In a city where there are over 300 different coffeeshops, one would think that it is impossible to visit them all. With all these coffeeshops located in a city which is only 64 square miles, it isn’t that hard of a feat to accomplish! I personally, have managed to visit my fair share of coffeeshops during my time living in Amsterdam and have come across a few which stood out to me for certain reasons. Without further ado, let me tell you about my favorite spots in Amsterdam to go to hang out and smoke some of Amsterdam’s finest ganja.… Read more

So , after a interesting and fun Valentines day weekend our get your guide web page was finally updated with some lovely photos from last summers tour. This of course got me thinking as to how many people did we have on our walking tours last year in Amsterdam. It seems like a blur and with 8 tour guides helping out to get people around Amsterdam, it almost feels like we´ve had only 200 people on our tours. Luckily, I couldnt have been more wrong. We´ve had 2,610 people on our tours! This doesn´t count the people who have joined … Read more

David Bowie RIP

bowie-mug-shotDavid Bowie, was formidably one of the most iconic and influential pop stars of our century. After my first time watching “Labryinth” , I knew that this Lord of the Goblins, was a treasure to behold. After countless albums, movies, and even admittedly dancing around my room in my underwear to “Golden Years”, or using a fish bowl as a space helmet and belting out “Space Oddity”, His influence was curiously underrated in my life, until today, when he passed away. Upon further research , I discovered, he advocated many causes during his stellar time on this planet, but one … Read more

Paris, Amsterdam Brussels is it safe to travel again?

Friday the 13th is a strange enough day as it is,  with black cats, evil and ominous warnings etc hanging over the meaning of this otherwise meaningless day.  With the recent events of this year, however,  in Paris,  we found it unsettling that our normally quaint and safe city of lights was attacked in such a brutal way.

 

This fear was reflected in tour bookings, we could see people decided to cancel their bookings for walking tours and , and avoid going out in the usually vibrant city streets of Paris.

Then sadly, only a week later, we discovered … Read more
