Area Information
De Pijp, Amsterdam

Just a short tram ride south of Centraal Station takes you into one of the most cosmopolitan and vibrant districts of Amsterdam. Welcome to de Pijp. For the eternally inquisitive, many will try to second-guess what de Pijp stands for but the truth is, no one really knows. Perhaps it owes its name to the long narrow streets that resemble pipes or to the infamous gas company, the 'Pipe', which used to supply energy to the area. Whoever or whatever is responsible for the name should be proud of the association.

Formerly a working class quarter built to ease the overpopulated Jordaan in the 19 th century and to house labourers, de Pijp as we Amsterdammers know it today is without doubt a melting pot of cultures and nationalities. Thanks to previous settlers such as Heijermans, De Haan, Bordewijk, Mondriaan and scores of students in search of a cheap room to rent, de Pijp continues to breathe life as the lively bohemian district known as the Quartier Latin (Latin Quarter). The young, old, students, artists, and families have all chosen to make de Pijp their home, a 15 min walk from the hustle and bustle of central Amsterdam, this homely alternative is appealing. Today, de Pijp is so popular that house prices have gone up an astonishing 350%!

Like the neighboring district Jordaan , de Pijp is brimming with fantastic cafés, restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Of course, a visit to Amsterdam wouldn't be the same without a trip to the Albert Cuypmarket, flanked by over 100 shops. If you wander down Albert Cuypstraat and Ferdinand Bolstraat, the main streets in de Pijp , you\'ll find many exotic and authentic Syrian, Moroccan, Surinamese restaurants, to name but a few, and a typical Amsterdam pub is located on almost every corner. Also in abundance are the Islamic butchers, Surinamese, Spanish, Indian and Turkish delicatessens and grocery stores. Try one of these restaurants or bars for size and if you found one that hit the right spot, don't forget to recommend it to us

Aside from the bars and restaurants, the Leidseplein is a mere ten minutes walk away, the Van Gogh museum five minutes and the red light district just around the corner on the Ruysdaelkade , behind the Rijksmuseum. D e Pijp is the smallest of the three red light districts and coincidentally, it is also Dutch slang for "penis". But if you don't fancy venturing out of de Pijp just quite yet, and who would blame you, take a picnic down to the beautiful Sarphati Park which has its own surrounding lake. Or if you think of yourself as a bit of a beer connoisseur, pop into the Heineken Brewery.

The Heineken Experience
Even if you tried, you couldn't miss this enormous red-brick building on Stadhouderskade Although Heineken is no longer a brewery, it has been fully renovated and now operates as a museum. Not only can you trace the 244-year history of the Heineken Empire, pick up a few tips on brewing, meet Dr Elion. (Inventor of Heineken's magic ingredient), and look inside a hop boiler but you can also go on a Bottle Ride. Seated on a moving platform, you follow the production route of a bottle of beer. Of course, if you have worked up a thirst after running the whole gamut of activities on offer at the Heineken Experience, reward yourself with a pint or two. Cheers!
