Planning a city break? We say base your travel plans on our new store opening in Amsterdam! Not only is the city now home to a Topshop, (just sayin’), but it’s also filled with inspiring cultural things to do. To give you the lowdown, we asked two stylish Dutch bloggers to take you on a tour through their neighbourhood and pick their favourite Topshop pieces from the new store.
“This tiny Italian restaurant has amazing Italian – very authentic, great atmosphere, and a nice crowd.”
HANG: PAPER PLANES
“This cafe is a great hangout with the perfect cappuccino!”
SEE: THE RIJKSMUSEUM
“The museum of The Netherlands – of course! An amazing Late Rembrandt exhibition is going on right now.”
‘GRAM: THE DAM SQUARE
“Gram the Dam! This square it’s perfect for Instagramming. I never put my phone down when I’m strolling through.”
EAT: BAR SPEK, barspek.nl
“This place is great for breakfast. The best eggs in town! Bakers & Roasters is my favourite place for lunch. The Foyer for dinner, a recent discovery I’m obsessed with.”
“In summer this park is is the place to go and have a nice BBQ with friends. When I want to opt for places less touristic, I head over to the Northern part of town, near the riverside.”
SEE: STED E LIJK MUSEUM, stedelijk.nl
“If you’re into modern art pay a trip to the Sted e lijk Museum – it’s my favourite in the city.”
‘GRAM: THE CANALS
“Pictures of the canals always do SO well on my Instagram. Especially during sunset. The centre of Amsterdam is like no other place in the world, so old and unique.”
