Amsterdam - De Pijp (PDF Chapter)
This is the De Pijp chapter from Lonely Planet’s Amsterdam guidebook.
De Pijp’s village character is partly due 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 re-tains a community-oriented bohemian spirit.

- stroll through an urban oasis of lawns, statues, ponds and fountains in Sarphatipark, De Pijp’s central park
- set sail in an electric boat to cruise Amsterdam’s canals at your own pace
