De Pijp and the Albert Cuyp Market Information
De Pijp is an area of Amsterdam that lies to the east of the Museum Quarter, directly south from central Amsterdam along the Vijzelstraat or by heading south from Rembrandtplein following Utrechtstraat.
De Pijp is a popular, vibrant and multicultural area of Amsterdam and was one the original working class suburbs of this Oud Zuid (Old South) region of the city. The focal point is the Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and longest market in the city and people come from all over Amsterdam to buy anything you can think of but especially fruit, flowers and cheese.
Due to the large student community that has moved to the area it is gradually transforming into one of the most hip and trendy neighborhoods in the city. One of the top local tips is a night out here in De Pijp. There are excellent restaurants and nightlife to enjoy and it’s a completely different vibe to the central nightlife areas.
If you are exploring during the day then as well as the Albert Cuyp Market there are a couple of other places worth visiting. To the North as you come from Central Amsterdam you have the Heineken Experience, formerly the brewery of the world’s most successful beer brand and now a top tourist attraction in the city. Then another nice park to stroll around to the south of the market is the Sarphati Park.
