TOUR IN AMSTERDAM
Always nice to know where to go if you are paying a visit in Amsterdam, in this issue we are going to discuss 3 hotspots in Amsterdam North. First stop Movie Museum Eye. You can say that the architexture is well designed it is breathtaking. The EYE Film Institute is a center in Amsterdam devoted to cinematography. The building is on the opposite of the Central Station, on the north bank of the IJ. The building was designed by the Austrian architect Roman Delugan and Elke Delugan-Meissl and opened in early 2012. The museum has four film theaters and an exhibitionarea of 1,200 sqm. There is room for educational activities, a film lab, a shop and a café-restaurant with terrace. All these conviviality under one roof is definitely worth a visit. From the train station you can walk to the ferry that leaves every 10 minutes to the museum so go on to your favorite cult movie and bring your bucket of popcorn along.
The biggest flea market of Europe ‘’De IJ Hallen’’ are you a digger or are you the best negotiator this is the place to test your skills ;-) Due to its size the market ''supply and demand'' come together perfectly as this results in a very high succes rate for the exhibition holder and the end consumer! You can take the ferry from Amsterdam Central Station, take the bus or get to the IJ Hallen by car. Parking is free. The entrance to the flea market is 4 euros per person.
Fieuw this was a exited day, Now it is time to relax and talk over all the experiences during the day in Amsterdam North. We highly recommend cafe de Ceuvel. Here you can relax in a hammock or just have a beer on the side of the shipyard. The pavilion is located on the Ceuvel, a former shipyard that has been transformed in recent years into a self-sufficient office park where old houseboats are lifted on land and equipped with the most sustainable techniques. Between the houseboats grow plants that clean the bottom. This location inspires the café to go looking for the most sustainable solutions and be a platform for the challenges facing the planet now faces. In addition to these exciting developments Cafe de Ceuvel serve great vegetarian croquettes ;-) and not to forget there main courses for not to much money you can enjoy delight full burgers fresh vegetables form 50/50 green (just around the corner) and there tasty home made limonade!
