Artistic. Bohemian. Convivial. Diverse. Edgy. De Pijp has so many facades that you could run twice through an alphabet of adjectives and still feel that you hadn’t quite pinned it down. Originally built fairly cheaply (by Amsterdam’s standards) for the city’s expanding population just south of the bustling centre, this neighbourhood now boasts some of Amsterdam’s most popular haunts. De Pijp holds dear its gritty persona, and although the scales have been tipping hipster-ward for some time now, you can still taste the original flavour with a wander through its beloved street market on Albert Cuypstraat. De Pijp is well connected by tram, bus and, more recently, the new North-South Metro station, which opened in July 2018.
