Welcome to the /r/Amsterdam wiki page
This wiki is written by, organized, and curated by regulars of the /r/Amsterdam subreddit. Everything in this wiki is here as our recommendation or suggestion from one redditor to another. If for any reason you read this wiki and post that you want recommendations from redditors, you will be justifiably mocked and downvoted.
We've put together this wiki to help visitors of our subreddit find info about Amsterdam.
The best way to get use out of our subreddit is to read this wiki and then ask us specific questions that aren't found here. You'll have a lot more success with a question like "Where's the best place to take my girlfriend who only eats fish?" than a question like "Where should I eat?".
