AMSTERDAM

DE CEUVEL

If you want to visit the future, go to De Ceuvel. The former shipyard in Amsterdam North has been converted into a scientific playground for those innovating sustainable technology. You’ll even see houseboats that have been brought on land and converted into offices. There’s also a sustainable café for when you need a bite.

ENTREPOT

If you want a locally-sourced, mesmerizing dinner experience, go to this restaurant located on a small dock and in a former warehouse space. For once, veggies are the stars of the show and meat takes a backseat. We recommend that you to go all out—order as much as you possibly can and get the wine pairing. It’s worth every penny.

FRITZ’S FRAU FRANZI

This Michelin-starred restaurant serves you a night to remember. The menu is small but the dishes are grand, which they sum up as “a world cuisine with an experimental touch.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

GREENTREES THE JUICERY

This juicery’s motto is “#TYBLAT,” which means “treat your body like a temple.” We couldn’t agree more. From their immune-boosting fresh juices to their soul-nourishing bowls, it’s all executed with love.
