Amsterdam-Noord has become more and more attractive in the last years. It used to be a place nobody went to voluntarily. Then bit by bit interesting spots settled on the other side of the water, and it became quite exciting to go there. Now, with gorgeous places directly at the waterfront like Eye, and the IJpromenade itself, Noord can rightfully be called a hot-spot!
The joy begins (and ends) with taking the ferry, I love the water and especially at night I love the lights, it always get me in a melancholy mood. Once you’re on the other side you have plenty of options. Museum, cinema, food, drinks, some vintage shopping a bit further away in Noord. Either way make sure that you go for a walk along the water and enjoy the peaceful view, even with hundreds of cyclists getting off and on the ferry every five minutes. Also a pleasure to watch!
