dsc_0371

Ride your bike around the Eastern Docklands to get a sense of the diversity of Amsterdam culture. You’ll also see some of the newer buildings and bridges, such as the famous Python Bridge. Head west and end up on the IJ-zijd of Amsterdam Centraal Station. From there you can take a free ferry across the IJ river to visit Amsterdam-Noord. You can check out the giant flea market in IJ Hallen or wander around to explore the urban architecture and graffiti. Also in Amsterdam-Noord are the EYE film museum and the A’DAM Toren, both providing great views across the river of Amsterdam proper.
