Oost & De Pijp
What are you going to do?
On this walk, you'll encounter a cultural melting pot that's also rich in history, from typical Amsterdam markets to Jewish traditions. There are lots of trendy foreign restaurants offering lunch or dinner.
The walk starts out in the vibrant neighborhood known as the Indische Buurt, where trendy and exotic blend effortlessly. In between Turkish bakeries and grocery stores you can sip an espresso at a hipster coffee bar. You will also find Studio/K here—a popular neighborhood venue for film, theater and music. Continue through bustling Javastraat toward the Dappermarkt, one of the few remaining authentic Amsterdam markets.
Be sure to spend some time at the fascinating and often-overlooked Tropenmuseum (Museum of the Tropics). The beautiful building is home to an enormous collection of objects from numerous cultures. The museum also has a special department for children, with interactive exhibitions, where kids can create their own art projects and make music.
On your walk through Oost you will encounter lots of great places to eat and interesting shops. And there’s always something happening on the Albert Cuypmarkt. This time-honored market in the heart of De Pijp is an essential part of Amsterdam.
Because this walk finishes in De Pijp, why not consider something different and exotic for dinner? Nepalese, Surinamese or Moroccan, you will find it all right here.
