Saskia's perfect day in the city might look like this
“I would recommend taking the ferry behind central station to visit an exhibition at Eye Filmmuseum in Amsterdam Noord.
Then continue north and cycle through the historic Buiksloterdijk and Schellingwouderdijk and admire the wooden houses. On your way, stop for a coffee and apple pie at neighbourhood-owned café het Sluisje.
Fueled up, cycle the Schellingwouderbridge back to the eastern part of the city and gaze at the skyline of the newest parts of Amsterdam (IJburg and Zeeburgereiland) from afar. Stop at the Flevopark and taste a homemade jenever at het Nieuwe Diep.
After this, you’re probably hungry again, so cycle through to the former naval area, east of the city center. Once off limits for civilians, it’s now being redeveloped. The excellent restaurant Scheepskameel is one of the new pioneers and a perfect place to end your day.”
