Amsterdam - De Pijp (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the De Pijp chapter from Lonely Planet’s Amsterdam guidebook.

De Pijp’s village-like character is due in part to the fact that it’s an island, connected to the rest of the city by 16 bridges. With gentrification continuing apace, this arty, foodie neighbourhood retains a community-oriented bohemian spirit.

  • transport
