There are plenty of nice places in Amsterdam, you just have to know where to find them. What are the seven best sidewalk cafes in town? We have compiled a list:
Volkshotel Amsterdam, in the Wibautstraat 150, cafe (with hottub) located on the top of the hotel.
Cafe/Restaurant Nel is located on what may very well be the nicest and most quiet square of Amsterdam. Right in the middle of the city, you can replenish your energy here at the end of a hectic day. Address: Amstelveld.
The Hoofdstad Brasserie is the brasserie of five star hotel l’Europe. This means the food and drinks you’ll find here aren’t cheap, but the beautiful location at the exact point where the river Amstel flows into the city’s canals definitely makes up for this. Address: Nieuwe Doelenstraat 2
If you’re looking for a cheaper place in more or less the same location, you might want to try Café de Jaren in the Nieuwe Doelenstraat 20. This café offers two amazing terraces at the waterside.
Another great place to relax is Hannekes Boom. With some nice music and a little touch of flower power, this is another very enjoyable café at the waterside. Address: Dijksgracht 4
More, much more expensive, Double Tree hotel, the Sky Lounge. Adress: Oosterdoksstraat 4, near Amsterdam Central Station.
Also expansive but with a swimming pool near the Palace at the Dam square is Bar Hotel W. Adress: Spuistraat 175
