What to expect

Are you an architecture enthusiast? Your local creator, Nik, shares his passion on this discovery walk across his neighborhood, the Eastern Docklands. Following in his footsteps, you’ll discover and learn about ‘islands’ connected by usual bridges, warehouses-turned-apartments, curious statues and buildings named after marine mammals… And you’ll get to recharge at the coziest of cafes too. Fun location-based riddles will lead the way!

This playful walk across Amsterdam’s modern neighborhood sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know Amsterdam or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next.

Local wonders you’ll discover on this walk include:

  • Former warehouses turned into modern apartments and offices
  • Javaeiland, Borneoeiland and Cruquiuseiland

  • The stunning Python Bridge

This discovery walk is an educational and fun activity for friends, couples, families with kids, curious locals, visitors, and team building. You can fully enjoy this experience of connecting with the city while staying in your own group.

Along the way, enjoy meaningful moments of discovery, explore, learn and have fun! Use #secretcitytrails to be featured on the company's social media and enter a monthly raffle to win a free discovery walk.
