Mission Statement

thingstodoinamsterdam.com aims to create a platform that contributes to the symbiosis of tourism and the city of Amsterdam. In order to do so, we focus on the interests of the following stakeholders;

  • Travellers; every person has a different style of travelling and thus different needs. Where some like to explore new places all by themselves, others might prefer the comfort of tours taking them to highlights and attractions. Some travellers prefer luxury, others might be looking for the best deals. Whatever your style of travelling is we want to give you the right information and point you to the right places in Amsterdam.
  • Local businesses; tourism in Amsterdam offers great opportunities for local businesses in Amsterdam and surrounding areas. We believe that connecting your business to the right audience can help grow your business.
  • Citizens of Amsterdam; we’re well aware of the pressure of tourism on the everyday life of locals. We believe that providing visitors with information on culture and rules of conduct might relieve the pressure. Besides we want to urge tourists to look further than the borders of Amsterdam.

Dani van Rooij

Born in October 1988. Like sailing, travelling and soccer. Always in for a beer or two!

Favourite thing in Amsterdam

Definitely the canals! I’ve always been into boats. Amsterdam is such a pretty city to see when cruising the canals. In the summer I occasionally work as a captain on a small boat and I love to see how much people enjoy a boat trip through this lovely city.

Favourite hidden secret

The tiny villages and cities surrounding Amsterdam. I grew up in Weesp, a tiny city 20 minutes away from Amsterdam that not too many tourists get to see. Such a pity. I think the best travelling tip if you go anywhere is to take scooter or bike and get off the beaten track for a bit!

Favourite dutch food

As a snack I’d go for a dutch herring. My favourite Dutch dish is Andijviestamppot.

Floris Broekmeulen

Born in April 1990. I love to visit the beach for surfing, travelling and creating graffiti art. Always up to discover new places or a match of table tennis!

Favourite thing in Amsterdam

The city parks! With good weather, getting the best out of the day, with good company. The people in the city are open minded and mostly up for a small talk or real deep conversation (if they have time). Thanks to the fact that I live in the centre of Amsterdam, I just grab my bike and a new story begins!

Favourite hidden secret

Making a combination of a few hidden secrets is my “secret”. Starting the day at one of the local markets, grapping a good lunch, go to the park, taking a boat trip with Dani, eating out or cook for my friends and end the day at brewery ‘T IJ 1 minutes away from my front door. Just make every day count!

Favourite Dutch food

I’ll go for my mum’s dishes. Hutspot, andijviestampot, zuurkool and spinazie (spinach) schotel are definitely my favourite. Simply delicious!

Favourite Thing About Amsterdam

What I like the most is that there is always something new to do in Amsterdam, it is impossible to get bored! From new bars and restaurants opening left and right to a huge variety of events taking place every week where locals and expats mingle.

Favourite Dutch food

I go crazy for a good ”borrel”: bitterballen, cheese, bread and dips… next to a local special beer!

is a professional blogger and freelance writer who studies and works in Amsterdam. Born January 8th, he is also the founder and owner of Beejonson Web Content Writers. Chuka enjoys writing about his passions, his interests, what interests others and blogging about Amsterdam.

Favourite thing about Amsterdam

Chuka’s love for Amsterdam stems from the fact that it is a multicultural city. It is a city that accepts everyone from every corner of the earth. In his own words, “Amsterdam is like a mother. She takes everyone in, does her best to make them feel at home and makes sure that they are presented with all the tools they need to stand on their feet.” The city’s multicultural identity is the one thing that makes Chuka Nwanazia see Amsterdam (and the Netherlands) as nothing but home.

The canals and the small streets that run alongside them! The view of the sun against the water and between the buildings is a sight that’s hard to get out of your mind any time soon.
