Amsterdam - De Pijp (PDF Chapter)
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.
- feast your senses on the international free-for-all of fresh produce, cheese, fish, colourful clothing, accessories and quirky Dutch souvenirs at Albert Cuypmarkt, the largest street market in Europe to open daily (except Sunday)
- stroll through an urban oasis of lawns, statues, ponds and fountains in Sarphatipark, De Pijp’s central park.
- hop between exuberantly friendly neighbourhood watering holes, starting with borrel (drinks) at lively bars such as Boca’s
- restaurants & bars
Coverage includes: Neighbourhood Top Five, Local Life, Getting There & Away, Sights, Eating, Drinking & Nightlife, Entertainment, Shopping.
