The architecture is impressive. The region is full of options and close to many attractions, is where everything happens. Best of all, you can do almost anything on foot. But there are disadvantages, too. It is crowded with tourists, prices are higher, and many of the old buildings that are now hotels have not been modernized.

Centro Amsterdã
jordaan Amsterdã


In the heart of the historic center, surrounded by canals, charming cafes and a little far from the crowds, yet still within walking distance of all the action. If that is what you are looking for, the Jordaan neighborhood is the best option for you, but it is not cheap.

Papeneiland, Bickerseiland and Realeneiland.

If in addition to the beautiful architecture you also want a little peace, a little further away from tourist places, then these three neighborhoods are a better choice.

Museumkwartier Amsterdã

Museumkwartier, museum region.

As its name suggests, it is within walking distance of Amsterdam’s main museums. It is a very wooded area and with many restaurants. The Vondelpark, the city’s main park, is also in this region.


If your budget is tighter, this neighborhood may be a good option for you. It is a more alternative, cool region, with a lot of art on the streets and architecture different from what you see in the center. It is across the bay from Amsterdam. Transport to the city center is done by ferry. The crossing time is short, and the best: it is free and works 24 hours.


De Pijp.

In this region there are more refined cafes: modern, cozy places and a great street market (Albert Cuypmarkt). It also has many delicious foods.
It’s a bohemian neighborhood, cooler, full of bars and bustling nightlife. It is close to the Heineken Experience.

NDSM Eiland.

Street art, graffiti, exclusive cafes, modern vibes and the best flea market in Amsterdam. To get there, take the ferry across from Central Station.
