Places you can visit when leaving the Moco Museum

You are planning your next trip to Amsterdam. One of the richest cities in art and culture. It is difficult to decide on all the places that this great city has to offer. One of the first visits of every art lover is to the Moco Museum. Its rebellious and young art will catch more than one. Although it is one of the most emblematic that exist in the city, there are other options of museum Amsterdam that you can visit. However, here we are going to talk about other places where you can go in Amsterdam. The first stop is the GVB Amsterdam Ferries. These blue colored boats will give you about 15 minutes of excitement on board. Hop across the IJ river to Buiksloterweg (Amsterdam North). No need to buy a ticket. That’s right, it’s free!

Get your feet or your bike ready for your next destinations

Amsterdam is full of places that will captivate more than one. There are many places that you might find creative and eye-catching. But let’s mention two that are worth a visit on your next trip. The first is the Skinny Bridge (Magere Brug). This wooden drawbridge spans the Amstel river at Kerkstraat between the Keizersgracht and Prinsengracht canals. Illuminated with more than 1000 light bulbs, it is only allowed for the transit of cyclists and pedestrians. The second is the Cuyperspassage Foot/Cycle Tunnel. It is located on the western side of Amsterdam Central Station which connects the city to the IJ ferry port. Its construction was completed in 2015. It has a width of 10 meters, a height of 3 meters and you will need to travel 110 meters to go through it completely. A highlight is the 80,000 glazed Delft Blue tiles adorning the pedestrian walkway.

More water and a place banned by the government

Amsterdam is surrounded by water. One of its great attractions are its water canals. Perfect for a romantic trip or just a relaxing stroll. One of the canals you should visit is the Amsterdam Canal Ring. This canal is part of the world heritage declared by UNESCO in 2010. It surrounds the city while enjoying a wonderful view of all the buildings full of stories. However, not everything is relaxing in Amsterdam. There is a no-go zone since 2020 by the city council. Guided tours are not allowed. The decision to go is up to you. It is called the Red-Light District (or De Wallen). Here you can get prostitutes behind windows, cafés, and even peep shows. If you decide to go, try to keep yourself in your 5 senses and pay attention to the pickpockets.
