You will enjoy the Cheese Museum if you are in to cheese. You will learn about the history of the cheese in The Netherlands and upstairs you can taste the cheese. The museum is very small and it isn’t very much to look at, but...More

To tour Amsterdam and not stroll by Jordaan, is as sacrilegious as visiting the Netherlands and not feasting on their singular cheese(s); "why not indulge in both?" - so we thought. Upon entering the shop, you will fail not to be pervaded by a very...More

Cheese is best tasted on it's own. And the knowledgable and enthusiastic staff are ready to peel off a piece of cheese off of any wheel for you to try. You will be able to figure out the nuances in Gouda and get some wacky...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll

better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

In most cases the cheese you buy has a layer of wax, usually coloured (green, red, strong yellow, sometimes even blue) that you should take of before eating. It's role is to keep the cheese fresh for a longer period of time... More
