Städtetrip Amsterdam | WDR Reisen


Amsterdam! A city that has more bikes than
Resident has, and constantly evolving. And the sun comes out! Two people, a weekend and only 300 euros. Mrs. Antje brings cheese from Holland! But can we afford it? Grachtenidylle and magical moments. Krass, Uwe look up! Does Amsterdam work for a small price? Amsterdam central, two and a half hours from Cologne and schwupps right in the middle! Beautiful or? Nice! And Amsterdam is worth a trip in any weather, right? That’s what you say in your youthful levity! What do you think of the city so spontaneously? Well, in any case, the whole
Bicycles, clear! Then Appeltaart, oh we have to try that! And of course the coffee shops! Coffee shops, clear canals .. we know everything! But the great thing is, this city is on the move, in transition. And there is still much to discover! So just the right thing for us both, I think. I’m looking forward! Where do we want to go first? In the nose, right? Nee not today, now only off to the hotel in the West! Okay, where is the west? That way! Well, Uwe will know it! I’m curious! The largest Dutch city is a melting pot. At the same time super traditional and extremely innovative. By the way, Amsterdam is of course the capital, However, the seat of government is The Hague. And here is the hotel somewhere? Yes, it would have to be the next street, around the corner. Uwe is actually on luxury, what did he choose here? Nothing like pure! Hello, welcome to the City Hub! That’s nice here! Do you have a reservation? One second … Yes, but you do not really need them, you can check in yourself. Come with me, I’ll show you! Okay, you just take a bracelet and activate it here. Without a chip on his arm, nothing works here. Yes, exactly, and ready! Your hub is number two. Uwe, that also applies to the bar! Bar sounds good! But it’s still here for now
a bit early. First check the room. Welcome to the battery, incredible! We are the number two we said, ne? No no no! You have to crawl in here now, that’s like in the ship! Look, magic light! Uwe, how do we find that? New, refreshingly new! Krass! Small, cool, but super central and
Cheap. We have already done worse. But now first off to the Grachtenviertel. Incidentally, this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So now we are right in the middle of the Amsterdam theme. Look at these wheels here! Amsterdam at a glance. And then
these beautiful houseboats there, great! So great, how comfortable it is there. Here you can even see a floating garden down here. And there everything on the roof completely greened. Since you have come up with something here, right? Yes that is … own! Man and back there those hammer houses! Amsterdam from the water, there I have
another small idea Uwe! If you say a little idea I’m scared again … No, surprise! OK! Well, Uwe does not seem so convinced yet, At the same time I wanted to keep him in a good mood for shopping. Try me … I love that, test a little bit! I know! Wonderful Amsterdam fragrance! Here are nine straatjes, great for strolling! Yes, then we go shopping, I’ll be right back! Nice! The Nine Streets – small, individual
Shops to feel good in the middle of the city. What a nice alternative to the
Eternally same shopping malls. Mrs. Antje brings cheese from Holland! Oh Tamina, I love cheese! You love cheese, I know. I think cheese is great too! In the Kaaskammer the cheese piled up to the ceiling. Most varieties, of course, 100 percent organic. Good day! We are so excited about the many
Cheese, how many varieties are there? We have 300 different varieties. My father-in-law founded this shop 20 years ago and I take over my wife and I now. So you could say you have your first
in your wife, and then in love with the cheese? Yes exactly and not the other way around! Can we try something? Because he loves cheese! Incidentally, Gauda does not designate the taste, but solely the form of the cheese. Learn something again! What can we take as a small souvenir? For some varieties Käsemann Jost travels even across Europe. What’s the name of this cheese? Remeker. And what does the Remeker cost? That makes 12,30 Euro. And now the most important thing. Thank you, all the best for you! Bye! Amsterdam is best discovered by
Water off. And this is not only possible with the well-known canal cruises, but also much more individual. That’s the surprise! These are the two girls with their boat, right? Who is who? Rachel? And Chantine, hello! This is Uwe! Uwe that’s two girls and a boat and we
may now make a small canal cruise. Okay surprise! Welcome aboard, rest assured! The girls are now showing us their Amsterdam. Do you understand a little German? Yes a little! I am Dutch and she is from Singapore. What a cool mix! Yes, that’s right! How come? We met on … … Tinder! Can not be, really? But we are only friends. Even if it did not spark at Tinder, Both fell in love with the city of Amsterdam. And what are you showing us today? The canals. That’s Amsterdam for me! That’s why I fell in love with the city. And we show that to our guests too. You learn the city from a whole
other perspective, from the water. That is totally relaxed! Yes it is nice and quiet! Nice these escapes, really nice! So what is that? Ahoy! Ahoy! Hey, that’s cool! Do you know him? I’ve seen him a few times already, that’s really magical! Magical! So beautiful! This is your water rally from Amsterdam. Sorry for the rain. So I play here
always in the canals, to give a nice song to people like you! The humans all stop and are enchanted. Uwe, now comes the wooden shoe! And now the tip gets into the shoe. I have something too. And look here we have … can I take a postcard with me? Very nice! You can also send them to Germany. Yes, exactly and tell that we met a really magical music boat. Many Thanks! I wish you a handful of water under the keel. We have that, handbreit water under the keel. How nice! Red Light District. This does not have the best reputation in Amsterdam either. Between bad drunk and greasy coffee shops But you can also discover exciting news here! Cannabis. Cannabis gifts. You want to go back in, right? Here you can trust yourself, I think. Yes, then dare to come in! Look, that’s all with cannabis, right? At least it is. Milk and honey. From cosmetics, to fashion, to food. And everything should be high? We have to ask! Hemp scarf or how? Excuse me? Hello, what do you want to know? Is this all about hemp? Yes, it’s all about hemp. We designed the store as bright and vibrant as possible, to also show the industrial side of cannabis. But the products do not have this special … No, no, that’s all without THC. This is a completely different plant. Healthy, good for the environment and you can make a lot of it. Marijuana is, so to speak, the illegal and hemp, the plant itself is healthy. Exactly. Same family, but not the same plant. Do you have a little souvenir from this particular plant for us? I have something very small for you here. This is a small Dutch mini garden. A small pot of hemp seeds. A small plant at home. Uwe, that will certainly look good in your garden! They have a speed, you, I’m still run over by the bike! Beware Uwe! Was that me, or did you do that again? I’m not sure, but everything went well. Ahh Tamina, stay here! That looks crazy! Oh God, do you know what that looks like? Like these body worlds. Anyway, right? Is that a real potato? That looks like something out of an alien movie. So a bit spooky, right? Does Frankenstein here in the middle of Amsterdam experiment with potatoes? We ask. That usually helps. Hello, what is this? Looks so scary! This is about potatoes. My business partner is Dr. med.
Pieper. He’s a researcher and very old, so it looks like a Victorian lab. Sounds exciting, but we still do not know exactly what Dr. Pieper is doing so. His parents found out that through a certain kind of preparation from potatoes and vegetables connects to the brain. Man Uwe, where did we land here? Let’s do this? Yes, we can do it! Quite a lot of fanfare around … fries! What a crazy idea! Delicious luxury rum with such a fat legend around it. Here are the fries with chicken and sweet and sour dip. With the mouth watering up! Since you also like to pay a few euros more. Happy fries in Amsterdam,
who has that? And hey, around the corner is our hotel again. That’s really around the corner! Let’s see what else is possible! I’m curious! Here is one thing above all – scan first, then mix. Not bad reaction! The decoration you think now please here. But of course. Wonderful Gin Tonic and a nice, fulfilled first day here in Amsterdam. You can say that, definitely! What do you want for tomorrow? So for tomorrow, I would love to go to the museum! Yes we can get it! And I would like to still in this north. In this great new district, where it should be very creative and exciting. And we should still cycling! Do we have a neat program! With well-mixed gin and tonic ends day
one of our perfect weekend. We have already spent 176 euros and we still have many plans. Whether 124 Euro rest budget not one
are a bit short? We’ll see! Amsterdam! Since the day starts well, Uwe did you sleep well? Joa, you know that! In the futuristic special place! Look at the next special place, we are on the museum square. You wanted a museum, right? Yes, but something from! So we have the Reich Museum here,
there Van Gogh Museum, lots of others. Now let’s have a look where it’s going to take you. Yes, I would say so long. The big art museums are definitely worth a trip, but we decided today for a small and very trendy alternative. Oh, look here, Banksy! Shall we go in there? Does it mean anything to you? Yes, this is a well-known London street art artist. Banksy is not only world famous, he is also a real mystery. And this museum is all about him. Man, such a great building! Such a historic house with modern art, that’s exciting! The Moco Museum is the youngest member of the museum grounds. Is that some kind of wall part or wall on which that was? Partially real walls, where he sprayed on it. Exactly. Hope, or she loses something … What will it be? The Banksy exhibition is totally hip. On some weekends, up to 2000 visitors come. Hello! I am the museum owner. Oh that’s exciting!
So you brought street art to the museum? Exactly! That’s special! Especially, Banksy is special! Banksy is even so special that not even the museum owner knows if she ever met him. Crazy! Did you ever meet him? I dont know. He wants to stay anonymous,
because once you’re a famous artist, like Warhol, for example, then everything changes. And so he can still participate in life and no one recognizes him. When I am in London and see his name on the front page, and everyone in the train is reading this newspaper, then I think, “Wow, he could just be with us now!” Well, Uwe, we’re watching out now, in the next cities, if we discover Banksy. Could be! Banksy wants to move the world with graffiti. It is not for nothing that his pictures speak of hopes and dreams. The Moco Museum helps him to carry on his messages. Doe maar Noordermarkt. And the sun comes out! And you are killing them all! That’s nice, that you can try anywhere. What would you like to have, madam? The gracious woman wants to either one … yes, such a small Müslibrötchen I found very delicious now. Het smaakt goed. Or how do you say here? Het smaakt goed. That means it tastes good, right? Yes! Okay and what does it cost? 1,75 Euro please. Time for modern Amsterdam. The north, the absolute trend quarter, is already waiting! The way to get there is not boring, there is art in passing in the Kaiserpassage next door. History of seafaring here. Here comes the new page. Wow, look at that! That’s right the new world, we have to go there, the north. And I just read on Facebook, the ferries here are free. They are free? Yes! All we need is a bicycle.
Look here, they pile up! We’ll surely find a cheap rental somewhere, and then we’ll get over there! Count me in! Star Bikes Rental. Hi good afternoon! Cozy here. Very nice, how do you say cozy
Dutch? Gezellig. Gezellig. Oh nice. We would like to rent a bike. Yes, the real Dutch Granny Wheel costs seven euros for the whole day. And we are open until seven in the evening. Here is your grandma wheel. So then we push that direction
Exit here. Oh hello, what is that? Oh Tamina, Appeltaart! Okay, we stay here. Oh, she brings them to you! Yes, she baked her. Do you want a piece? Yes, clearly we try! Oh look how it steams now! Oh how beautiful, thank you! And suddenly the bicycle shop becomes the most beautiful café with the best home-baked Appeltaart in the world! You eat from the corner, I eat from the corner! We are in for apple pie happiness
almost forgot that we still have a destination. The north, now! Help, nobody runs me over. Ah that’s great! On the way! So ferries have something of vacation anyway. Unimaginable that is still ahead
few years ago hardly a tourist in the north dared. Today the ferries leave every minute. Everyone wants to see what has become of the former dilapidated harbor area. Driving, or running? I push gently! At first, the Filmmuseum dared to cross the river. Then came the tourists and with it more and more restaurants and startups. The north is getting sexier, more colorful and busier. Especially the terrain around
the former shipyard shines in all colors. Look great, colorful and casual! The perfect place for creative spirits with new ideas. Small greenhouse complacent? The apparent greenhouse turns out to be a modern café. And that suits us right! We want something delicious now,
typical thing that goes so well here. Typically Dutch, which I can recommend, are Bitterballlen. Ah bitter bales! Thank you very much! Uwe, that looks great, look we’ll be full! And? Certainly hot! Mega hot! Yes, it looks like steaming. Is just really nice nasty. Deep fried and inside such a mushy, comforting paste. That’s the way it should be. Exactly. Now you turn off your camera. What’s that? Industrial Designs, Neef, Louis? Ne whole warehouse full of things. Dutch people love nonsense, but this exceeds all our expectations. On 1500 square meters, there really is nothing in this vintage hall that does not exist! Munich, we were already. We have already been recruiting. Oh look, that’s cool from the canteen kitchen. That would be something for you Uwe, because you can finally touch it really big. Eggpunch. Absurdities stand next to real classics. Hello, yes no problem. Let’s start with a few euros, but of course the price limit is open at the top. Hello how are you? Well! Do you like it here? Yes, totally, it is impressive! We just came in and discover this new world here. Well then, welcome to the new world. What is the idea? I love furniture, so I started to collect and repair furniture. and at some point I could not find my bed anymore and could not sleep anymore, So I opened a shop. Yes and people like it. And then it got bigger and bigger? Exactly. You see how life goes, it’s all ballast, furniture ballast. Cool business idea! Louis makes out
Ballast money. What a guy! Crazy! And if something is missing, find it here
you certainly! But really everything! Where are we going? To the water again? Oh, let’s go! Is great here on the water! Hey and there you can still go up. You can go to the roof. Is that probably free? No, unfortunately not. So, off in the elevator! If you look up, you can experience our lightshow. Krass Uwe, look up! We have already driven a cheaper lift, but we have not seen such a light show yet. I feel dizzy right now. Look right! That’s a great light! And this view reconciles us with the
proud price, complete! That’s great! That’s pretty chic, right? Yes! But a big city. It was worth it again to come up here and to look. Yes, that’s great. Unfortunately our time in Amsterdam is over. What is still missing, the Kassensturz. Blick, Banksy and boat cost 90 Euro. Saved, but not starved, we have
during the meal and came with just under 53 euros well over the rounds. Original, but not expensive, was our night in the sleeping box, 75 euros. Exemplarily cheap the transport. 22 euros for bus, train and Omafahrrad. There was enough left over for souvenirs and water music, 20 euros. Just 260 euros for our Amsterdam. There, behind us, the historical, ahead of us
Modern. That was the great mix! Yes, we really lived that,
whether we were eating fries now, with the cheese, everything new and still the
Connection to earlier! Of course, we know Amsterdam, we know the canals. But be with the girls so personally. Then this music man who came. Magic moment! Simply an exciting city, even if you already know it worth a trip. See you next time! Bye! And now we show: Amsterdam at night!
