With the Free Alternative Tour we go to the west side of the city centre. We take the route away from the normal tourist track.

Spui Straat

This is the original squatting street of Amsterdam. We explain the squatting movement of Amsterdam.

Negen Straatjes

Nine streets, where you find all the original boutique shops that sell unique things. No big franchise shops, but alternative, vintage shops from local entrepreneurs.

Homo monument

Next to the Westerkerk, you find the Gay Monument. We make a stop for the historical acceptance of gays, lesbians and transgenders in Amsterdam.

Anne Frank House

The most famous girl from Amsterdam. At her house where she was hidden behind a closet, we tell her story, and how life was for Jews in Amsterdam.

Tulip Museum

Why are these flowers from Turkey so special for Holland? What was the price of a box of flowers in Amsterdam in 1632?

Jordaan

We walk through this part that used to be a ghetto in Amsterdam. Now it is one of the most loved areas of Amsterdam to live in!

Alternative Red Light District

Yes, there’s more to the famous Red Light District than most know! Discover more about the story behind the red lit windows.

Back to the Dam Square so you do not get lost.
