  • We at Amsterdam In Your Pocket have decided to give you a little walking tour of the city

  • and what better place to start than at the Amsterdam Central Station.

  • Built in 1889 it's a huge transport hub and chances are

  • if you've flown into Amsterdam Schipol airport you'll take a train here for only a few euros.

  • Within 15 minutes the whole city is in front of you.

  • So come along with us on this little tour and we will show you some of the best

  • streets, squares, canals and other things worth seeing.

  • In the Netherlands bicycles are literally everywhere and Amsterdam is no exception.

  • We are here at the fietsflat, the four-storey bicycle parking lot next to the central station

  • which has to be the largest bicycle parking lot in the world I suppose.

  • While you are in Amsterdam we definitely recommend renting a bike.

  • You can see the whole city that way and basically be like a local.

  • If you take the Damrak straight from Central Station, you will eventually reach Dam Square.

  • Behind me is the Royal Palace which wasn't always royal.

  • It was actually built in 1655 as the Town Hall but was eventually appropriated

  • uh... by the Royal family.

  • There's also Madame Tussaud's on one side

  • and there’s plenty of other stuff to see. On the other side is the National Monument

  • commemorating the Dutch who suffered under the Nazi occupation and who resisted the Nazis.

  • Usually full of street performers and buskers. Some are actually pretty good.

  • [Music]

  • We are on Leidseplein, which is pretty much one of Amsterdam’s most popular squares.

  • It's always packed with people even during the day like now

  • and this is basically where Amsterdam’s nightlife begins and ends. It’s just filled with cafés, restaurants, bars, clubs

  • you name it and even the Bulldog coffee shop across the street located in a former police station.

  • Only in AmsterdamSo it’s also a good place to just hang out and check out what's going on.

  • And it's also as you can see behind me, a major tram stop so basically

  • all the trams that come in from Central Station going down that way, they all stop off here.

  • There are also plenty of street performers in the area all kinds of buskers and break dancers and God knows what.

  • [Music]

  • We are here on Museumplein, and right behind me is the Rijksmuseum, which is where everyone goes to look at Rembrandt.

  • And around here is also the House of Bols experience and the Van Gogh Museum

  • and this huge park as well where people hang out and have picnics.

  • But most people also come here to relax and hang out. And, of course, tourists always come here to get

  • their pictures taken next to Amsterdam’s tourism slogan: “I am Amsterdamor “I Amsterdam”.

  • We are not exactly sure why, but everyone loves to do it.

  • [Church bells]

  • We are at the famous Amsterdam flower market.

  • Amsterdamers are quick to point out that it's the only floating flower market in Europe.

  • But it's not actually floating. Some of it is on barges but most of it is on dry land right here.

  • The one thing that you can get here is plenty of bulbs. Bulbs, bulbs, bulbs and more bulbs to take home and plant in your own garden.

  • Of course there is plenty of souvenirs to be had on both sides of the street.

  • It's basically a market and a tourist attraction all in on one.

  • It’s no secret that Amsterdam has plenty of beautiful canals.

  • But in our opinion the area where the Prinsengracht meets the Brouwersgracht, or theBrewersCanal

  • is one of the most picturesque areas of Amsterdam. It’s got all these beautiful buildings in the background

  • that once served as breweries and theyve got all these excellent painted shutters.

  • So it’s really a great place to take pictures and to just wonder around.

  • It’s also the beginning of the Jordaan district. It’s a bit of a Bohemian area of Amsterdam

  • with lots of great cafés and things to see, as well as the Noordermarkt which is right next to a church.

  • It's a great market square where you can find excellent things to buy most days of the week.

  • [Music]

  • This is Rembrandtplein named after, you guessed it, that guy over there, Rembrandt

  • Other than the statue of him, there really isn’t that much else to see here

  • except for lots and lots of clubs and cafés and bars and hotels.

  • Other than that it’s a popular place to just hang out for a little bit and grab a snack or something.

  • But at night this place is usually raging with lots of clubbers and what not.

  • [Music]

  • The building to the right is the most impressive of Amsterdam's remaining city gates.

  • It was called St. Anthony's Gate and it was built in 1488 but eventually became obsolete.

  • It was then used as a weigh station for merchants. The apartments upstairs were used by local guilds

  • including the surgeons guild. Every once in a while they would actually dissect a freshly executed criminal

  • up there which was open to the public. They also became obsolete and eventually

  • it became the restaurant that it is now.

  • It's located on the New Market Square which is full of cafés and bars and also a market, of course, true to its name.

  • Everyone has heard about Amsterdam’s Red Light District, but not everyone knows that the city also has its own Chinatown.

  • Complete with its own Buddhist temple which is supposedly one of Europe’s largest.

  • It’s basically a few streets that go from the Nieuwmarkt up towards the Central Station.

  • Obviously there’s also plenty of supermarkets, and Chinese restaurants and all kind of great places to eat.

  • Just look for the restaurants with ducks hanging in the windows.

  • So were in the Red Light District right now. This is the main drag basically where

  • everyone comes to see the girls. There's also plenty of sex shops and

  • live performances and God knows what else.

  • But we have to be quick about this because if the girls see us filming they'll be very, very pissed off.

  • Basically I actually came here once to interview them during the day and

  • they were not amused. They thought that me paying them for a couple of questions

  • was incredibly perverse. So anyway in the end we found out at least that

  • It’s €50 if you want to go here and have 20 minutes with the girls.

  • So, if you are in the market then this is the place to go. It can get a bit sleazy

  • at night but there's also tons of tourists who are here to laugh at you as you go up and talk to the girls.

  • So, do or don't have a good time.
