Another fabulous pub at the edge of the Red Light district. Try the Gerardo’s Dubbel or Aepjen Bier if you want a really great Dutch Beer. Built as an inn in the 1600’s, this SWEET bar is oozing with charm.

We stopped in for a quick beer just to see the place. It is one of the oldest remaining brown bars in Amsterdam. Be sure to read up on it beforehand, there isn’t anything there to explain its history. Interesting decor and delicious beer.

One of the few remaining timber buildings in the city, lovely spot to step into and take time out with a drink in beautiful quirky surroundings as the world passes by outside.

The famous monkey bar has a beautiful decor. From the inside and out it reeks history. Our beer and coffees were just what we needed after a brisk walk of the neighborhood. I especially enjoyed my sweet cookie that was served with our coffees. The...More

I love int Aepjen. I loved it when I first set foot in this historical bruin "brown" cafe in 1998 and I loved it even more almost 20 years later. Amazing beer and friendly staff located a 5 minute walk from the main train station.

Really enjoy this place when in Amsterdam. Lots of history in this place can be empty or so darn packed you can’t walk. It’s told it’s the oldest bar in the dam. Pretty small and go to the toilets before you have a buzz.

This is a really, really cool little bar. It's got an atmosphere unto itself. Good beer selection. I recommend it, if you don't like it, so what, it's worth that chance. I need to defend the rude ratings a little bit. You have to understand...More

Considered by some to be one of the best bars in the world. It has operated continuously since 1519. Fascinating history as it was near the docks during the heydays of the Dutch West Indies company. Sailors would sometimes pay for lodging and beer with...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
view some of the city’s most picturesque canals,
historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples
of traditional local architecture – not to mention
Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist
temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
