Runner on the ground - DAVID

Most people come to Amsterdam for the Medieval Centre and the famous Canal Belt. But there is another absolutely spectacular side to Amsterdam just a few strides outside the busy old town.
This running tour combines many of the must see of Amsterdam with urban life off the beaten track: world-class architecture, amazing views, and some of the best-kept secrets of Amsterdam. The tour also gives you a great insight into maritime history, Amsterdam’s main reason for its existence.
We visit Dam Square, the notorious Red Light District, the UNESCO canal belt and the Museum Harbor with its antique ships. Running through the scenic and historical ‘Plantage’ neighborhood we visit the oldest park in Amsterdam. We also pass a typical Dutch windmill and might come across some elephants while running along the zoo. Following east we explore the former docklands, harbors and warehouses that have been transformed into new and spectacular living and working spaces. This region, hosting the KNSM and Java Island, is renowned for its architecture and definitely a highlight for anybody interested in modern architecture and city development.

We will run along the river IJ, the boardwalk of Amsterdam, with spectacular views over the water and the rapidly developing north side of the town.
The run is full of surprises, picture and Wow moments. Most of the time our tour will only be a few steps from the water, spoiling us constantly with scenic views.
