One of best places in Amsterdam! Free cheese samples of all different kinds. Also a small free museum on the lower level. Really neat place and very helpful staff.

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll

quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.
