A two-wheeled neighbourhood tour

Noord, Amsterdam

A two-wheeled neighbourhood tour

Join an expert-led bike tour of Amsterdam-Noord, famous for its shipyards, cutting-edge architecture and artist colony. Leave the tourist trail behind as you explore a transfigured wharf, modernist masterpieces and a half-sunk Soviet submarine.

Most Amsterdam bike tours pass through the city’s most well-trodden hotspots – but not this one. Led by a resident who knows the city inside and out, you’ll make your way through local hangout Noord, a pocket of Amsterdam with a rich and varied past. The trip will be tailored to your interests, but will likely include the Westerpark, the NSDM Wharf (a shipyard turned creative hub) and Prinseneiland, one of the charming western islands.

Where you'll go
You’ll meet your guide at a café, where you’ll get acquainted with your bikes and hear a bit about Westerpark and the Gashouder Westergasfabriek – your first two stops. The tour will be tailored to your interests, so where you go next will reflect that. Most people include the NSDM Wharf, historic canal houses, buildings constructed by the Amsterdam School and charming Prinseneiland. At the end, you’ll cycle back to Westerpark.
What you'll sample
No two tours are exactly alike. Depending on what you want to get out of your experience, you might explore Noord’s modernist architecture, wander through 19th-century shipyards, or discover the local street-art scene. If you get peckish or fancy a break, ask your guide to stop at a microbrewery or café, where you’ll be able to sample classic Dutch snacks like apple pie or raw herring.
