Walking Tour: Amsterdam Liberal Capital of the World

During the first half of the tour we'll dive into the history of Amsterdam and how it became the most liberal city in the world. I will take you on a story framed journey through the historic city center. You will learn how Amsteram became the World Capital for gay marriage, recreational drug use, prostitution, abortion and euthanesia. Then we'll take the ferry across the river IJ to an old industrial shipping wharf in Amsterdam North. It was abandoned in the 1980s and slowly converted into an underground hotspot for prospective local artists in the 1990s. Today the old shipping wharf in Amsterdam North is a salute to Amsterdam's Liberal Spirit. The artist community is mostly self-regulated and the city doesn't exercise much control. It is the most secret hidden gem of Amsterdam and a must-see for anyone who is interested in Amsterdam's local art scene! We'll check out loads of extraordinary pop-up art, street art, shipping-containers-turned-artist-studios and graffiti art.
