Brouwerij ‘t IJ ,
Brouwerij ‘t IJ is a brewery with its tasting room in a windmill. Located in a more remote spot outside the city centre, it’s a popular haunt for locals. They brew seven beers all year round but their draught beer range varies with the season. A good place for sitting outside in the summer
The Cultuurpark Westergasfabriek, Jordaan & Westerpark
Culture, history, relaxation and nature. All of these work surprisingly well here and it's also very family friendly. This city park boasts great venues for events and exhibitions, a film theatre, historical factory buildings, a great place to cycle/walk and a range of cafes and bars. Their monthly Sunday market is one not to be missed.
Royal Palace, Centre
Built in 1665 the building, which is now know as the Royal Palace, served as Stadhuis (Town Hall) until 1808, when Louis Napoleon (King of the Netherlands at the time) declared it his personal residence. Today, the Royal Palace is used for state visits, New Year receptions and other official functions. But, when not in use by the Queen or members of the Royal House, the palace is open to the public and features a series of exhibitions throughout the year.
