Our favourite hotspots

The city of Amsterdam has its own zoo: Artis. Wonder through this historic zoo and be welcomed by all the animals. 

Fancy a glass of wine? One of our favourite wine bars is ‘Paskamer’. Located in the middle of De Pijp, this gem offers an abundance of excellent wines by the glass and a menu full of exquisite tapas-style dishes.

A new jewel in the city is Satchmo – a modern restaurant in an ancient building dating back to 1647 on the refurbished Rokin. Every floor of Satchmo has been decorated with an impeccable eye with smooth jazz in the background because Satchmo was Louis Armstrong’s nickname.

The best view of the city can be enjoyed from Skylounge, a rooftop bar right next to Centraal Station. Here you feel on top of the world, with Amsterdam lying at your feet in its full glory.
