I finally made it to Amsterdam!! Can you believe it took me 29 years to visit this gorgeous city, even though it’s just a really short flight or train ride from Germany? I did a lot of research to make sure I see all the cutest spot in a short weekend getaway, so I’m happy to share my must sees with you <3
When in Amsterdam, I wanted to stay somewhere really special and I found the cutest hotel concept I could ever dream of: the SWEETS hotel consisting of 28 of the old, iconic bridge houses all over the city transformed into independent hotel suites on Amsterdam’s canals. Every bridge house has a different design but all of them have one thing in common: the most inspiring views of Amsterdam’s canals for sure! We stayed at the colorful, 3-storey Gerben Wagenaarbrug bridge house on the North Holland canal, which is the largest of all the bridge houses, including a living room, bedroom and bathroom. Just lovely!
Amsterdam really has the coolest food spots and most delicious treats ever. But my personal favorites are:
THE DUCHESS: located in a stunningly glamorous setting in one of the best-kept historic gems of Amsterdam, here you can find exquisite cuisine for a special night, creative cocktail variations and maybe the best afternoon tea in the Netherlands! Served in the elegant Tea Room, you get spoiled with the most tempting treats, like the Alice in Wonderland tea party came to life. My personal highlight: the golden egg with beluga caviar – scrumptious!
Van Wonderen Stroopwafels: The best stroopwafels in Amsterdam, freshly made for you with your favorite toppings. The store is super cute and the stroopwafels are the perfect souvenir to bring back home!
MaMa Kelly: Not only the cutest and most stylish restaurant / bar I’ve ever seen, but also fantastic simple food! They are famous for their chicken or lobster, but I can highly recommend the steak sandwich – maybe the best I ever had!
I finally had the chance to take out all my new favorites found at Shopbop for this trip to stroll around the cute neighborhoods of Amsterdam. Perfect for the first spring days: my pastel pink aviator sherpa jacket. Tip: go one size up for a oversized look! The perfect match and imho the coolest kicks right now are the FILA Disruptor sneakers. How do you like them? I love to style them with feminine colors and fabrics like sexy leather pants or cute dresses to make them look a little less edgy. Can’t wait to show you some more looks!
