Terrace tips
  • Hoftuin
One of the best kept secrets of Amsterdam. This cozy tea house is hidden between the ‘Nieuwe Herengracht’ and the ‘Nieuwe Keizersgracht’. In the middle of the busy center of Amsterdam this terrace offers some peace and delicious cakes, lunches or drinks.

  • Waterkant
Waterkant is a legendary hotspot to enjoy Friday afternoon drinks. This place is inspired by Paramaribo. You can relax at the quay of this fantastic summer hangout and enjoy Surinamese food and beer. We get the fact that you can’t resist licking your fingers after the famous Roti dish they serve!
  • Bar Brandstof
Locals love this terrace in Amsterdam, located just outside the centrum. It’s loved because of the atmosphere and tasty food. Locals will recommend the special burger evening on Thursdays!
  • Skylounge
Without any doubt the skylounge has one of the most beautiful views of the city. You can find this place on top of the luxurious doubletree hotel next to the central station. It’s the perfect place for a bird's-eye view over Amsterdam, while enjoying drinks with friends.
  • Café de Jaren
For a nice lunch or quick bite you should definitely go to Café de Jaren. They have an amazing waterside terrace and also a beautiful balcony with a lovely view over the Amstel.
