Get comfortable on your sofa … we’re about to start the tour to the heart of the city.

Talk like a local

Dutch is spoken by around 24 million people as a first language and 5 million people as a second language, constituting the majority of people in the Netherlands and Belgium (as one of three official languages).

It’s the native language of Suriname where it also holds an official status, as it does in Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten.

Ready for a bit of Dutch?

Lunch time

The Dutch love herring, which they call Hollandse Nieuwe or ‘New Dutch herring’. It’s usually eaten raw on a bun or as a snack with some chopped onions and pickles. Tasty and healthy … what more could you ask for?!

EVENING

A busy day calls for a relaxing evening.
Mix a drink, snack on something heavenly and immerse yourself in a bit of Dutch culture.

Happy hour

Genever has a long tradition in Amsterdam, and though it’s been seen as something an older generation might enjoy, it’s been making something of a comeback. Try mixing it yourself and create a fresh “Fast Running Break” cocktail.

The munchies

Dessert for dinner … yeah, it’s that kind of an evening.
The local delicacy Stroopwafel might just be the perfect thing to snack on.
