What you'll do

We'll meet at 11 am at the café KOBALT, Singel 2a, a short walk from the Central Station. From there I'll take you for a walk through the Mediaeval town, the Canals and the "Jordaan", the famous working man's quarter. A tour along many gable stones and five Courtyards- with Almshouses -around, through old Amsterdam. The tour lasts 2 and a half to 3 hours, depending on if we'll have a drink somewhere (recommended!). The tour ends right where we started.

Henk

For the last 7 years I've been a (voluntary) guide in Amsterdam. Every week I walk with small groups (no more than 6 people) through one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I have a passion for gable stones, the -very often beautiful- relief stones that served as the address since mediaeval times. You lived in the Red Lion or next to Abraham's Sacrifice. There are 1028 stones left and I know them all. I've worked out an unique tour along these stones in the open air museum called Amsterdam.

What's included

Equipment
You'll need good shoes and maybe a raincoat.

Where you'll be

The walk leads us through the mediaeval part of town, where the ancient harbour used to be, than through the northern part of the Canals, through one of my favourite streets in town, than on through the northern part of the Jordaan, where we'll see five courtyards that date back to the Middle Ages. And while walking I'll show you the most beautiful gable stones. About a hundred different ones.
