Old Town scavenger hunt

Would like to know everything about the historic old town? Then you've come to the right place! The scavenger hunt takes you on a discovery tour through the old town and leads you through the unique, historic city center with special places, people and stories. The scavenger hunt is perfect to introduce high school students or university students to the history of the city during a school trip to Amsterdam.

Route of the scavenger hunt

The walking route runs along the Nieuwmarkt, Chinatown, the Zeedijk, the Damrak and the Begijnhof and then back along the Amstel and the Zuiderkerk to end the Nieuwmarkt. The questions are aimed at gaining as much knowledge as possible about Amsterdam's history; the questions have a large variety. The route runs in a circle; where you start you also end. That is why you can decide where you want to start on the route yourself. A perfect activity in Amsterdam with friends or family. We also offer the scavenger hunt in Dutch.

"My friends and I did the old town scavenger hunt a few weeks ago and had a really great time. Have had to do the tour again for some other friends and it’s been really enjoyable — it’s definitely upgraded our walks, and much better than getting restless on a terrace still!"
"We had a wonderful afternoon with my family. I have lived in Amsterdam for years, but came to places where I had never been."
"We really liked it, everyone had a task, we visited things like the temple and the Chinese supermarket. The scavenger hunt was great."
