Located in the Overhoeks neighbourhood, making it one of ClinkNOORD’s neighbours, The EYE is a real must for film lovers. It serves as both an archive, museum and cinema and screens both Dutch and foreign films. A permanent exhibition inhabits the basement whilst various multimedia exhibitions come and go.

Voted the most beautiful canal in Amsterdam five years in a row. They even stopped stopped having the election because it was always clear which waterway was going to come out on top! It connects to the Princes Canal and anything in between is called the Jordan area.
Winkel sits on a gorgeous square in front of the Noorderkerk (Nothern Church), just on the outskirts of the Jordaan district. It’s famous for its apple tart and absolutely must be tasted! The portions, with their delicious pastry, coarsely chopped apple and whipped cream, are generous and oven warm. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it! There’s an organic farmers market on in the square on Saturday mornings and a flea market on Mondays. Pie and shopping – a good combo in our books!
