Things to do in The Netherlands

High atop the temporary HQ of the Stedelijk Museum, in the edgy eastern docklands, sits this anomaly of dining and entertainment: occupying a full floor of a vast warehouse building, it has the merest hint of décor (some cheery yellow-green paint here and there, long picnic tables).

Tulip bulbs, seeds, and cut daffodils, roses, lilies, and more are for sale at this shop. Ask the shopkeeper for bulbs that are certified to pass U.S. Customs. Even if you don’t buy, a stroll through the urban garden atmosphere is worthwhile.

With 21 beers, 21 wines, and 21 whiskeys, this minimalist pub encourages you to taste, as the name suggests.

This floating flower market is always filled with people, who come for the experience, colors, and fragrances, even if shopping isn’t on the agenda.

With a name meaning "Studio Re-Use," it makes sense that the space holds a wacky collection of cradle-to-cradle objects, clothing, and accessories. Created by Jan de Haas, the space is meant to showcase every kind of reuse experiment that comes along.
