What you'll do

On my tour you will learn about Dutch culture, architecture & art through the lens of Amsterdam Noord's vibrant street art scene. During the tour I will show you many beautiful, hidden sites of the city. We begin the tour on foot at Centraal Station, but if you're comfortable going Dutch—we'll rent bikes together to be able to see more sights. We will catch the free ferry to Noord & its street art treasures. On the boat ride there you'll see & learn about many buildings including the spectacular new Paleis van Justitie by the architect Felix Claus. We'll disembark at the NDSM wharf & catch our first street art masterpiece: huge painting of Anne Frank by Brazilian artist Eduardo Cobra. From there we'll walk or ride together, learning & discussing Noord's hidden sights & street artworks that reflect Amsterdam's history & the constantly changing nature of the Noord area. After discovering Noord about 2 hours together, I'll return you to a spot near the ferry terminal. There you can ride the ferry back with me, OR you can try excellent apple pie or real Dutch fish snacks like fresh herring or fish and chips. After, you'll have my NDSM recommendations to further explore its vintage shops & art studios near the ferry. Our tour will end 2 hours after it begun at the meeting point.

Teresa

I am an art historian and critic, but most importantly for this tour: a lover of street art and modern architecture and giving these tours is a wonderful possibility to share my passion. As a teenager I started to paint and spray myself and I can explain you how it works, and will talk about the street art Codex and how artists communicate on the streets and structure their work. On my tour we will see how fast Amsterdam's street scene changes—even on a daily basis! To help you discover and explore on the tour, I'll share with you my curiosity and depth of knowledge as an expert in art and architecture. I have gained this expertise from my degrees in Politics and Art History, and more importantly from years of first hand field work looking at buildings & art, and conversing with the people who make them to learn their stories.
