Ruigoord / Okay Ruigoord is on of the most amazing places I know. It is actually a small town where beautiful people live who are busy with art, spirituality, music, dance and a lot of love. They even have an old church where they give great parties. This place makes you go back to Woodstock ’69. Only go here when you reconice yourself in one of these aspects and there is a little hippie inside of you who appreciates nature. You can only visit this place when they have an event so check the website in advance.

Pllek / This restaurant and bar built of used shipping containers has a relaxed beach ambiance and an amazing view of Amsterdam. Just a 20 minute ferry ride from Centraal Station, Pllek may give you the feeling of a beach holiday. On a sunny day, relax on the beach chairs in the gravel with a beer in hand and watch the ships go by on the IJ. When the weather is not so nice, cuddle up inside on the comfy sofas upstairs or down. Beautiful spot to relax.
