18th July 2016

One of the best things about Amsterdam is walking into a ‘coffeeshop’ and legitimately getting some that green herb. Just make sure you don’t confuse between a ‘coffee shop’ and a coffeeshop.

There are coffeeshops everywhere in the city, so here is a roundup of the ones are the must on your Amsterdam Travel. Compiled from two trips to the city.


  1. Prix D’Ami: One of the largest Coffeeshop is highly recommended apart from the obvious.
  1. Dampkring: This coffeeshop has a chilled out vibe and good quality strains. Their selection of tea is impressive, and the staff is happy to suggest you the best ones. Their special cake is something you should not miss.
  1. Amnesia: This coffee shop looks like a nice bar in the first glance, located in the Princhestraat canal Amnesia is a great coffee shop to chill. There is a good selection of strains, and they’re priced quite well. The board games and good music makes it a total hit.
