Stopped off here for a beer. Husband had the paddle and I had a wheat beer. Gorgeous. Really different decor and a cool vibe.

I love beer. Not the usual lager that is served all over the world, but special beer. The appearance of microbreweries from across the Atlantic Ocean also touched the Netherlands. One of these tiny breweries is established in Amsterdam and is called "De Prael". Right...More

Kind of hard to find, but well worth it to find it. Tucked away on Oudezijds Armsteeg, it is definitely not slammed with tourists like most other bars in the area. They have a terrific beer selection and delicious food. We make it a point...More

Red Light District (De Wallen)
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
