Walking tour around the Pijp and Riverbuurd area. Bohemian De Pijp's narrow streets are lined with Middle Eastern eateries, old-school pubs and cafes with sidewalk terraces. Gregarious stallholders at Albert Cuypmarkt sell Dutch specialities like herrings and waffles. In a former brewery, the multimedia Heineken Experience chronicles the history of beer making and offers tastings.

After recognizing Pijp features we will move towards the South to spot and discover the Amsterdamse School architecture style. The Amsterdam School is a style of architecture that arose from 1910 through about 1930 in the Netherlands. The Amsterdam School movement is part of the international Expressionist architecture, sometimes linked to German Brick Expressionism.

Anna

I'm Anna, an artist who works internationally and lives in Amsterdam. Completed my BA in Amsterdam as a Textile Designer, then MA in London at the Royal College of Art as Information Experience Designer. At this moment a PhD​ researcher at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Frequent traveller​ and freelancer. I fell in love with Amsterdam and decided to make it my home forever. Pijp, the place to be now! Pijp and the Rivierenbuurt have been my neighbourhoods for more than a decade now, and it has changed as the city a lot. Would you like to know more about this city and its citizens? Amsterdam is made of Amsterdammers, the buildings are just a package for all of us. Experience Amsterdam individually, this tour will be very out of the box. Skip the hours of line queue to the museum and hop on a bike with me or walk if you prefer.
