Take one of the ferries once to Amsterdam Noord! Noord is known for its raw industrial vibe and has been hot and happening in recent years. With more and more nice tents and city beaches where especially summer is very good. Think of hotspots like Café de Ceuvel and Pllek where you can relax on the water. Other fine places on the water include the terrace at film museum EYE (at sunset!), Fish restaurant Stork, and THT.

One of our favorite neighborhoods in Amsterdam Noord is the NDSM site. The spot to grab the best festivals! In addition, Noord is also a Walhalla for vintage and cycle shopping. Not to be missed is the monthly flea market in the IJ halls where you can buy second-hand clothes for a good price. Also check out the other hotspots in Noord that we have selected for you in the Amsterdam City Guide!


During the summer period in Amsterdam we usually have many vegan food festivals starting from May until late August where you can find different vegan food stands. You can easily find vegan raw food, vegan indian food or vegan thai food for example on these food festivals so you never get bored!

Amsterdam Noord is home to several restaurants where you can find fresh, nutritious and stunning vegan dishes. The Green Canteen, it’s a true gem for vegetarian and vegan foodies. With a charming atmosphere, friendly staff and the chef’s contagious passion for sustainability, the Green Canteen’s creative cuisine offer healthy dishes packed with flavor, prepared with fresh ingredients and for an excellent price. On average, around 700 million kilos of edible food is wasted every year in the Netherlands. The Green Canteen is well- aware of this, which why their dishes are prepared with unused veggies from shops that otherwise would have been thrown away. Did I forget to mention that the falafel, their specialty, is served with an unlimited salad bar for only 5 euros?
