Cycle excursion Eastern Docklands

On KNSM island old and new ways of building fit beautifully together. The architects took in account the old port character of this island, which led to architecture of international élan.

Java island shows a completely different site, with its summer- winter- autumn- and spring gardens, small canals, bridges and fantastic apartment fronts.

We'll finish nearby Central Station Amsterdam.

We really enjoyed the architecture excursion through the Eastern Docklands. Our group of architects, urban planners, traffic experts and engineers had an informative but also very pleasant afternoon. According to us this excursion is not just for experts but is also very nice and interesting for everybody else.T. Douma / Gemeente Sneek

More than two interesting, entertaining and informative hours!! You get to parts of Amsterdam that you wouldn't normally walk to. It was very relaxed walking and listening to the guide. Also the organization by Local Experts was spotless, to the point without surprises. Don't hesitate to book a guide for say 2 hours and you really experience the city in a completely different way!
