HOTSPOTS & HIDDEN GEMS | 8KM OR 15KM TOUR

Highlights: Rembrandt, Canals & Windmills

Audience:  Tourists & Expats

Duration:    8KM (1.5 hours) and 15KM  (2.5 hours)

This is the ultimate running experience for tourists or expats new to Amsterdam who want to explore the highlights of the city in a relaxed way. This guided tour is a great blend between running along the UNESCO World Heritage canal belt, the scenic Amstel River and the peaceful Amstelpark which is known for its beautiful gardens. Your guide will share historical knowledge, insights into local life and makes sure to stop at the best spots for taking pictures.

We start at Rembrandtsquare (city centre),  run past the Royal Theatre, cross the historic 'Skinny Bridge' and carry on to Amstelpark, one of our most beautiful city parks. We'll continue to the Riekerwindmill, a historic polder drainage windmill, alongside a statue of Rembrandt that celebrates the many sketches he made in this area. When you can't get enough (book the 15KM instead of 8KM tour) and we’ll continue to lovely Ouderkerk aan de Amstel, a very charming town located on the water side. If you feel like a drink, we'll end the tour with a craft beer in one of our local bars.

Want to stay away from the crowded downtown area and enjoy nature? This tour lets you unplug and experience Amsterdam in a mindful way.

Your guide will share insights into local life and makes sure to stop at the best sceneries for taking pictures.

WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING

'Awesome experience! We did the 8KM Hotspots & Hidden Gems tour with Marije. Good orientation to the city and running along the canal belt and Amstel river was simply beautiful. Marije was very relaxed, friendly and knowledgeable. She also provided us with great bar and restaurant recommendations along the way. We celebrated our run afterwards with a craft beer at a local bar. We definitely recommend to book this tour.'
