That’s great – thank you so much – can’t wait to get there now at least I have an idea of what and where to go. :cloud9:October 27, 2005 at 8:44 am #708749
one of my favourite coffeeshops is Paradox, not far from the Anne Frank House – it’s a really small and freindly coffeeshop that doesn’t see too many tourists. I’ve visited it five times in the last ten years and every time I’ve been I’ve seen the same local faces 🙂 must be a good sign the gear is very good there and you’ll see lots of locals stopping off to pick up their stufff there — oh, and they have great fresh fruit milkshakes!
also, I would recommend some laughing buddha from Barney’s Breakfast Bar on Harlemmerdijk – though it’s always full of tourists the gear is good and they even have a microscope for you to look in detail at what you’ve just bought. great way to start the day!
I agree with globallon – go to the museums, it’s such a shame when british tourists spend all their time in coffeeshops or the red light district – amsterdam has so much more to offer than that. The stedelijk has been closed for refurbishment for some time now, but the van gogh museum is great – especially when you’ve just had some mushrooms 😉
one other recommendation – if it’s a nice day head to Oosterpark – it’s a lovely park to just sit and chill and have a smoke without going in to yet another coffeeshop
have a great time – i’m sure you will!!July 4, 2006 at 12:41 pm #708773

through the weed smoke-clouded memories i see a cheap backpackers hostel in the museum quarter just south of the rijksmuseum, was very cool and informal but properly clean and stuff. its one of these, i cant remember which tho…. we had a big bay window on the corner, so it was nice, but a few others got rooms with no windows, so make sure you ask for a decent room when you book.the nearest rokery smokehouse was my favorite caning venue, except maybe the greenleaf near dam square, that had some beautifully carved walls and massive buds under glass. anyway sorry to be vague, its in the nature of teh beast.July 4, 2006 at 10:06 pm #708786
I stayed at the ramenas and it was clean, tidy and cheap. me n bout 7 others payed 48 euros for 2 nights each and breakfast is included. the landlord even gave us a bong to smoke with in the room.
Nice little breakfast bar/coffee shop called barneys bout 5 mins away n this was the first place i smoked at, walked out so stoned the place looked different.

don’t know if it still exists but the Hotel Brian on Singel Canal is very central, cheap, clean, comfy beds

You definetly have to go to Barney’s coffee shop…. Is brilliant and the Barney’s breakfasts are to die for!!!!August 8, 2006 at 8:41 pm #708787

If you go to the cannabis collage down the red light district ask for a demo with the hooker pipe and if your lucky you and your mates can get a go:wink:August 9, 2006 at 8:28 am #708801
Looks good, thanks! Been there a couple of times this far but need some new ideas on where to go and what to do. We’ll be there 28th to 30th, a short time and in the middle of the week but the flights were really cheap. Leaves more money for other things… :bounce_fl
