13 Quirky Things to do in Amsterdam

13 QUIRKY THINGS TO DO IN Amsterdam Museum Corpus Experience Not one for the squeamish, Amsterdam's Corpus Experience is housed inside a giant, replica human body. Explore the oesophagus, take a stroll through the colon and meander through the molars and incisors of a giant mouth, this museum is nothing if not educational, with all sorts of fascinating exhibits that celebrate and explain bodily functions. mum Restaurant Moeders Welcome to a restaurant where every day is Mother's Day - Moeders is a traditionally Dutch dining experience that celebrates everything maternal. In its early days, Moeders would gift free food to any customers in return for a photo of their mother. Now featuring a somewhat overcrowded 'Wall of Mums', this is the perfect place to sample good, old fashioned Dutch cuisine in relaxed and homely settings. GloiGolf Ansterdam 00 GlowGolf Just when you thought crazy golf couldn't get any crazier – trust Amsterdam to take it to the next level. GlowGolf is a 3D, fluorescent, multi-dimensional golfing extravaganza, featuring eighteen glow-in-the-dark holes and a typically quirky local pub above for post-round drinks. Fluorescent Museum Get ready to feel totally psychedelic and a little bit dizzy, as you explore Amsterdam's technicolour dream museum – Electric Ladyland - the First Museum of Fluorescent Art. Started in 1987 as a gallery showcasing fluorescent art, this museum is now home to all things trippy, incandescent and multi-coloured, from its meandering walls to its stalactite-dripping ceilings. Sherlocked Channel your inner detective and get locked in Amsterdam's very first 'Escape Room' with a group of friends. Full of puzzles and concealing all manner of secrets, how long will it be before you manage to figure your way out? The CatBoat Feline fanatics will delight in the world's only floating cat shelter, situated in Amsterdam's Singel 38. Overflowing with loveable stray cats and open all day for petting and cuddling sessions, this is the perfect place to relax and unwind with a furry companion and stunning view across the canal. Pedalo Treasure Hunt What better way to take in the sights and sounds of Amsterdam's renowned canal network, than by thrashing around on pedalos, battling to uncover clues and hidden secrets in a fiercely competitive treasure hunt? That is a rhetorical question. There is no better way. -Indonesian Food Due to its former colonisation of the country, the Netherlands serves up some of the best Indonesian food outside of Indonesia itself. Sampling some prime rijsttafel (rice table) dishes in Amsterdam is an absolute must for any foodie. REM Eiland Get into the spirit of the swinging 60s and grab a drink at REM Eiland a bar and restaurant that used to be a pirate radio station. Overlooking the sea and elevated above ground level, not only does this unique bar serve up stunning views, but also a slice of Amsterdam's cultural history. 15 Bridges Amsterdam is famous for its multiple bridges and canal network, but if you find yourself pushed for time, you'll be pleased to hear that there is a way to take in the sights all at once. Locate the bridge crossing between the Reguliersgracht and the Herengracht, and turn your back to the Thorbeckeplein. At this specific point, 15 of Amsterdam's bridges should be visible! Blijburg Beach Not many visit Amsterdam for its swathes of shoreline, but should you find yourself longing for the sea air when visiting, fear not. Just a swift jaunt outside of the city lies the beautiful Blijburg Beach, a sandy expanse perfect for sunbathing the day away, and the ideal venue for outdoor partying after the sun goes down. Surfing in Vondelpark Whiz through Amsterdam's famous Vondelpark perched on a longboard, and jump on board the city's latest hipster trend. Propelled along by a guide riding a 'fixie bike', you will experience the park's famed scenery at full-throttle! Amsterdam Public Library Amsterdam can even transform something as pedestrian as a visit to the local library into a brilliant day out, with Openbare Bibliotheek's unique blend of quirky installations, inspiring exhibits, and of course, books. Have a tinkle on the lobby's grand piano, listen to nostalgic tunes on dusty record players and ogle unequalled views across the city from the seventh floor – you'll be taking out a member's card in no time! dealchecker.Couk we search, you save Sources,,,,,,, TonyV3112/ Blijburg aan Zee .....
