Taste the Old Town

Lovers of good food and drinks will discover the secrets of the old town during this fun activity. You will follow a walking route through the old town on your own. During the walk you will learn more about sights on the route and you will go in at various locations to taste local delicacies. Taste products made with love in the old town and for which residents like to specially return for. The city walk comes as a scavenger hunt, but you could also ignore the questions and only do the beautiful walking route.


The scavenger hunt will be sent to you by post, so that you can already prepare the activity at home. The package can be also be picked up at a location (will be discussed personally). The enclosed map shows the three locations that you will visit during the walk for tastings. During this activity you will enjoy:

  • an Old Dutch liqueur in a historic location;
  • a traditionally brewed beer in a brewery on the former beer quay;
  • a half sandwich of the addictive sandwich Zeedijk, a delicacy known to locals;
  • homemade chocolate led by the master chocolatier Kees Raat, author of the award-winning book Ice Age.

Reactions on the Taste the Old Town activity

"It was nice to do the walk at your own pace and to learn more about Amsterdam. The tastings were super, especially the liqueur. We were received very warmly and we had a nice conversation with the owner."
"We enjoyed a lot and especially laughed a lot. Although we all come from Amsterdam, we discovered new things. We all thought we had a fun day and that was partly due to the route and the nice and varied stops along the way."
"It was AMAZING! Everyone had a great time, nice questions and the tastings were very hartly."
