Amsterdam is a fabulous city that attracts tourists from all corners of the world. From its world class museums and exhibitions to its wonderful canals, Amsterdam is a place everyone wants to visit. However, there is one great thing that will catch your attention while in this amazing city. This is none other than its vibrant art scene which makes the city itself look like an exhibition. The Amsterdam’s art scene covers everything from graffiti, and sculptures to stencilled poetry that are found in museums and on the streets.
Amsterdam’s street art is a work of skilled artists on the street who want to show off their amazing talent to all visitors of the city. The beautiful artworks are everywhere in the city and you will enjoy them most while cycling on the city streets. One of the top spots you will find cool artwork in the city is the Jordaan area. Here, you will find the beautiful and famous mural on Primsengracht painted by the London Police. The artwork is all about smiling faces of small children characters that will draw everyone’s attention, especially your children. In this same place you will have a view of one of the beautiful canals of Amsterdam.
If you are not satisfied with the London Police artwork, you can cycle to De Wallen with yet other amazing street art. After De Wallen, you can take a ferry to NDS-werf, which also has stunning and beautiful artwork for a selfie. If you are tired with graffiti, you can walk or cycle to a small sculpture garden in Entrepotdok, where your eyes will be surprised with a metal kangaroo holding a baby in her pouch. This is an amazing sculpture you would want your children to see and take a picture.
In order to do all the above activities and get to explore the whole Amsterdam, you would definitely require a good nearby hostel to stay.
