10. Hit the streets for cutting-edge art
You don’t need to head indoors for your fix of culture: Amsterdam has an active street art scene. Every corner of town is a place to discover images of all shapes and sizes, from freehand graffiti to stencils, sculptures and stickers. Dubbed the city’s ‘guerilla poet’, Laser 3.14 scribbles one-liners over city walls, whereas the brilliant Kamp Seedorf glue football-inspired cut-outs over the urban jungle. Many urban galleries have picked up on the street art scene, including Go Gallery on the stately Prinsengracht, which sells work by The London Police a stone’s throw from a giant wall-side example of their monochrome bubble-headed cartoons.
