    The Amstel-area is, together with the Reguliersdwarsstraat area the trendy neighborhood. It is situated around the Rembrandtplein, a square with lots of terasses outside in summertime. Here you wil find many gay bars, from dance-bars to cosy small bars where people meet.

    Pride-specific: street parties on the Amstel are crowded, but with a pleasant business. Here you also have a great spot for the Canal Parade sailing by on Sat. afternoon, as well as being close by the Stopera for the Sunday afternoon closing party.

    Kerkstraat area
    The Kerkstraat-area is one of the oldest gay-areas around town, and is situated near the Leidseplein, where the Casino and City Theatre are. The Leidseplein is the area for most straight people to go out. The Kerkstraat is a cosy, gay friendly neighbourhood, and currently is undergoing a new revival. You will also find most of the gay hotels here.

    Other Areas

    You may want to consider staying at

    Vondelpark Quarter

    The most beautifull buildings in town can be found here; lovely and quiet. Please be aware that the Vondelpark is quite big; if you stay at the down-town city side, you may be a few minutes walk away from the Leidseplein and Kerkstraat area. However, if you stay at the opposite side of the park, it may take you more then half an hour walk. Renting a bike might be a good idea in that case.
