De Pijp

Hotel Okura Amsterdam is situated at the Ferdinand Bolstraat, named after the artist Ferdinand Bol, and is considered the heart of De Pijp. Noteworthy, most of the streets are named after Dutch painters. ‘De Pijp’ is often referred to the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam.

Cosmopolitan and vibrant neighbourhood De Pijp is a local hotspot with hundreds of bars and restaurants within easy reach of all of Amsterdam and its surroundings.

The Netherlands’ most famous outdoor market, the Albert Cuypmarkt is located in De Pijp. The daily market offers a place for more than 300 stalls and sell almost everything: cheese, fresh seafood, meat, fruit but also jewelry, clothes and flowers. The Albert Cuypmarkt is only one of the great shopping experiences that De Pijp has to offer.  

The former Heineken Brewery, where beer was brewed for a 100 years, has been transformed into an interactive sightseeing tour through the dynamic world of Heineken. Nowadays it is called the Heineken Experience.

The Sarphatipark is a small park in the middle of De Pijp. Although, the park is not that big, the large pond gives the park a relaxed atmosphere. 

De Pijp metro station has an entrance at the Ferdinand Bolstraat and Ceintuurbaan. Here, the metro takes you to Dam Square in just 5 minutes.
