Things to do in De Pijp
In the heart of De Pijp you can visit the famous Albert Cuyp market. It is a good place to stock up on fresh produce such as cheese, roasted nuts, fish, bread and flowers. You will also find a lot of clothing and of course a stroopwafel stall. Do you want to buy some souvenirs? You will also find them in abundance on the market.
Those who prefer to leave the crowds behind can walk to the quiet Sarphatipark. Sports enthusiasts can run, play volleyball, table tennis and basketball and you can relax on the lawns or by the pond. You can also visit a working monumental polder pumping station and there is a play forest and a playground for children.
Another well-known attraction in De Pijp is the Heineken Experience in the north of the district. Here you will learn everything about the process of beer making and learn more about the famous beer manufacturer.
Are you a lover of culture? In the east of De Pijp you can go to Cinetol, where emerging bands take the stage. Theater CC Amstel is located directly opposite Cinetol and provides approximately two hundred performances every year.
What you shouldn't miss in De Pijp is eating delicious world dishes. With an enormous amount of eateries and restaurants, it is a true Valhalla for foodies.
What to do around the Pijp
You can easily fill a morning or afternoon with a walk through the lively Pijp. But this part of the city is also incredibly central, making it very easy to explore other parts of the city from here. For example, you can park in De Pijp by parking your car in a parking garage in De Pijp, after which you travel on foot or by public transport to the center or to the museum quarter in Amsterdam South (link to parking Amsterdam South).
Here you will find three well-known and interesting museums: the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum. There are also some smaller museums in the area, such as the modern art museum Moco Museum Amsterdam and the Diamond Museum. The Concertgebouw is also located here. Culture lovers have come to the right place here.
From the Albert Cuyp market it is a half hour walk to the Palace on the Dam. That sounds like a long walk, but if you consider that you walk through the beautiful canal belt and that you can visit sights such as the Foam photography museum along the way, you will understand that walking through the city is really no punishment. If you think it's too far to walk, you can simply transfer to public transport after parking in De Pijp.
