Amsterdam

So I'm finally heading to Amsterdam and obviously I'll be doing research on which coffee shops to visit, and other attractions, but it's always nice to see what other people have done and what were their better experiences. So my question to HLTV is, out of your own experience, where are the best coffee shops to visit? Best tourist attractions? Nice areas to visit? -420blazinsquadUNITE

How much is "overpriced" from a coffee shop? I was looking at prices yesterday and they were 3-7 euros for a joint which I don't think that's too bad since it's actual weed from Amsterdam and considering the prices I have to pay here for bud, it works out the same and this is just normal English bud.
2014-02-03 13:25
don't buy the pre-rolled joints. they use the buds that they can't sell or its shake(dust). Just don't pay anything stupid like 15+€ for a gram. You can get amazing weed for like 8-12 euro. Some of the shops take more care of their weed (cured/flushed/organic) and some just want to make money selling to tourists.

We had great fun doing barhopping in the red light district!!!! We ended up in a clubbish bar with a dancefloor and such - was great fun
2014-02-03 13:29
Was in bulldog, but I think there is a couple of them, and the guy who was selling there was so rude, but I guess he won't be working there anymore lol. Also the first shop I went to is close to centraal station and is called "hotel coffeshop Voyagers" which was very nice with friendly staff. And also keep in mind those tourist attractions can be quite expensive, but that money should be enough for you, I had like 80 euro for 3 days and it was enough, altough my meals was from hotel.
2014-02-03 13:31
Voyagers has the best weed in town.
2014-02-03 13:34
I see, good to know cuz I wasnt very well that night :D
2014-02-03 13:37
all of you smoke weed? too bad
2014-02-04 13:30
If you've never tried psychedelics before I'd highly recommend making use of the availability and legality of the magic truffles. It's such an amazing experience to be able to walk through the streets, blatantly tripping your face off, and not have to worry about getting into any sort of trouble for it.

My plan is to try truffles, can't wait!
2014-02-03 13:36
yeah, tried them once in my life (in netherlands). Had a great time and laughed myself to sleep :)
2014-02-03 14:05
aren't truffels the same as magic mushrooms? I'm my country in autumn you can go to special place where they grow and collect them yourself, and belive me they are not worse than the ones that are sold from abroad... + they are natural :D just collect about 30 pcs. and get a trip :D

yeah they are, shrooms in most countries are legal until they've dried up which is when they become illegal
2014-02-04 15:03
I visited about 10 coffee shops, imo the best were bulldog, barneys and greenhouse, there was also good coffeeshops out of the center but i cant remember their name. i've seen some awful coffee though, tourist attract and full of people with weird music ahah/ redlight district is great to visit, and there are some great museums too
2014-02-03 13:38
Amsterdam coffee*tourists*shops where all the prices are damn high. GL
2014-02-03 13:38
we don't mind the prices that much, it's about finally legally smoking weed in an nice environment
2014-02-03 14:02

I was in a wax museum in amsterdam (might have been in den haag or utrecht, was way too high to remember), anyway it was really nice. Visiting coffeshops and exploring the cities with friends is what I basically did, had a great time.
2014-02-03 14:01

I went to the zoo 2 few years ago. It was the shittest thing ever. More than half the cages had nothing in them. It looked more like a business estate with empty cages.

Careful with smoking weed in NL, we have extremely high THC levels in our weed. Just so you know. If if you are doing truffels, it takes +5 hours to wear off. and can be VERY intense depending on what type you get. And Amsterdam has so much more to offer than drugs and prostitutes. Rent a bike and go exploring, and ofc smoke Some grass now and then ;-)

my plan is to get high, cycle round dam and eat truffles all day
2014-02-04 13:48
Go see the Dam for an hour and get away from there. Tourist trap. And did you ever do truffels/paddo's before? Cycling and truffels don't mix, so are busy places. Go to the park and do them there, you'll thank me later.. Hope you will get the good stuff and not the tourist crap. GL & HF!
2014-02-04 17:53
Avoid the more central "tourist attraction" coffeeshops. They often have average and overpriced product. The best are the small "untouched" organic places imo. A couple of my favs: Cafe Media Katsu Amnesia (for the original amnesia haze) Bluebird (for their hash) Barneys (their G13 haze = death) emilyheskey gave the best advice on the pricing. Basically if you see white widow (standard strain) for 15+ euro per gram, get the hell outta there! The worst ive seen was greenhouse, im pretty sure they had white widow for 16 euro per gram one time i went. I got outta there fast.

If you plan to stay active then don't smoke before you go out, you might end up having a change of plan. hf
2014-02-04 14:00
The Rockery, The Doors, Route 66, Pinky Flyod all worth checking out.
