I proudly introduce to you the Amsterdam Next City Guide App! The AMS NXT App allows you to take Amsterdam Next with you wherever you go, and can be downloaded from both the App store and on Google Play, starting TODAY!

Over the last few months I have been busy collecting and photographing over 200 different design and fashion stores, coffee corners, beautiful interiors and lunch spots in town. Some we already know and many new ones that haven't been added to the website yet but can already be found in the APP!  

Getting frequently asked for the latest hotspots in town, I started writing guides and blogging about the city years ago. From a few tips by email, a page full of addresses and the Amsterdam Next website, releasing te Amsterdam City Guide App is a new step on a journey I really enjoy! 


With a only a few days in town it is always hard to decide what to do and what to see, or even to remember where that one amazing store was located you visited before! And whether you’re new in Amsterdam or have been living here for years, there are always new hot-spots to discover.

Being born and having lived in Amsterdam my whole life I truly am in love with my hometown and I hope using the app you will get the most out of your visit! 

The App divides the city into 17 districts, allowing you to discover as much of the city as you want in a particular day. Only here for a few days? Pick a few different city walks, and get the most out of your visit! The app will show you exactly where to find all my favourite locations, the timeless classics, as well as the hottest new concept stores, and must-see designer stores in every district, and where to grab coffee or lunch in between.

Prefer to do your shopping topic-based? The app offers a collection of highlights, based on certain themes like Concept stores, Industrial design, Dutch design, and must-see designer stores to shop for yourself, your family, and your home. 

What makes this app extremely user friendly for those who are unfamiliar with the city's sometimes confusing lay-out, the app offers different city maps for every district and every store, which makes it easy to plan your route, or see exactly where you are.

Sissy Boy Christmas market on the Amstelveld | Utrechtsestraat area

The Amstelveld, located in the Utrechtse straat | Rembrandtplein area, is a quiet square dominated by a white wooden church, surrounded by trees and a view on the canal. Around the church yesterdays Sissy Boy Christmas Market was the place to search for small treasures, unique items and left over stock. Like on every real Christmas market lots of greens, wine, hot chocolate and fire pots to keep you warm.

In the Duif church on the other side of the canal, different designers and brands were represented with a small stable. In case you missed it, there will be another Sissy Boy Christmas market on December 20 in Laren. (See link here)
