Reading time 4 minutes

The Dutch capital has more to offer than Gouda, red light, chips and frikandel! A trip to Amsterdam is especially worthwhile for beauty lovers. We have located the best beautiful addresses and the most relaxing places of the locals and invite you to a summer discovery tour through the beautiful harbor city:

Natural lip service

About a year ago, House of Balm opened its doors with a handpicked selection of organic beauty products. The special thing: in the small business you can try through the entire range. Our favorite is the natural lipbalm from the Amsterdam label kikoyo (about 12 Euro).

That's the smell of Amsterdam

Those who stay in the city over the weekend should absolutely grab a jute bag on Saturday morning and stroll to the Organic Farmer's Market in the trendy Jordaan district. From tulips and fresh raspberries over wild mushrooms to freshly caught North Sea oysters - here you will find everything your heart desires.

Sweet Treatments

During a long walk across the market, make sure to make a stopover in the congenial Eckcafé on the Noordermarkt. In the angle 43, there is the best apple pie in town - definitely try with fresh whipped cream!

Beauty sleep

Cool, urban and hip meets history - this recipe for success describes the hotel, which stretches across five canal houses along the Herengracht with its historic and highly photogenic stone façade. As in his hometown of London, The Hoxton Amsterdam is not only a stylish lodging but a meeting place for the international and local creative scene.

Organic nice

A natural way of life inside and out - this is the philosophy of the small beauty salon in Herrenstraat. At Cosmetics and Care , you can not only book soothing facials, pedicures and massages, but you can also find locally certified Organic cosmetics in addition to international ones.

Healthy unhealthy

The light-flooded restaurant serves all sorts of healthy delights daily - prepared with fresh, seasonal, seasonal ingredients. The Pluk is the perfect lunch spot for a light lunch between the morning spa treatment and a nine-street shopping tour.

With its luxurious Art Deco interior, this small spa looks like it was taken from Paris in the 1920s and set in Amsterdam's city center. If you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a moment, you can relax in the sauna Deco in the pool, in the infrared sauna or with a treatment with a cup of tea.

Located directly on the canals, the FOAM photography museum is well worth a detour even on a short visit to Amsterdam. Here are regularly changing exhibitions by renowned photographers, including in particular young talents such as Ren Hang or Harley Weir shown. Currently on display: works by Adam Jeppesen, Roger Ballen & Asgar Carlsen and Gordon Parks.
