BEST OF AMSTERDAM – 11KMFrom: €38.50
Go! Running Tours in Amsterdam are the best way to discover the Netherlands’ historic, yet forward-thinking capital. Filled with art museums, medieval architecture and the decadent Red Light District, Amsterdam has something for everyone.
Our guided runs will take you round all the major sights, as well as some of the more unusual stop-offs. Learn about the historic and hedonistic, with a sprinkle of UNESCO, in the Best of Amsterdam route. The Urban Amsterdam tour is great if you’ve seen the sights and want to find some of Amsterdam’s best-kept secrets.
Located under sea level and with over 100 km of canals, it’s great for runners who are afraid of hills. So pack your shoes, some thermals for winter, and discover the city with our running tours in Amsterdam.
The historic centre is a fantastic spot for snap-happy tourists and culture vultures alike. Small, winding streets hiding over 7000 monuments snake out from the central Dam Square, so there is always something new to discover. Anne Frank’s House, the Van Gogh Museum and the Rijksmuseum are highlights among the top attractions.
To address the elephant in the room, the world-famous Red Light District is a stone’s throw from the centre. Floral-smelling coffeeshops and large windows lit by red neon dominate this neighbourhood. However, it is a gold mine of quirky tales that your personal guide will recount for you.
For something more mainstream, but just as decadent, head to Jordaan. Amsterdam’s foodie heaven, Jordaan is the cool people neighbourhood with all kinds of great places to grab a bite. Our sightrunning tours can take you outside of the centre where architecture, creativity and culture reign supreme.
You don’t get to look like the Dutch without an active lifestyle. Amsterdam has more than four times as many bikes as cars, but running is far from a niche activity. Vondelpark, Rembrandt Park and Westerpark are amazing places to stretch your legs and breathe in fresh, Dutch air. For something more serious, the Amsterdam Marathon takes place in late October.
Running tours in Amsterdam are the best way to soak up what the city has to offer in a short amount of time. From Dam Square to the Red Light District and off-the-beaten-track gems that you won’t find anywhere else, our guided runs are a fun, safe and sociable way to discover the Dutch capital.
