Amsterdam Counter Culture

Counter Culture & Gentrification on NDSM

This tour takes you to an area of Amsterdam where you can see the past, the present, and the future combined in a single space. After the glorious era of Dutch shipbuilding ended, a group of city nomads, craftsmen, and artists converted the former shipyard into a breeding ground for creative talent. But this artistic development also had consequences, with real estate prices going up and MTV and other companies moving in. There is a Hilton hotel now, and the former shipyard crane has been turned into luxury suites. Is there still space for alternative culture in Amsterdam, or is everything about money nowadays?

Giving back to amsterdam

By asking communities how our tours can enrich and give back to the places we travel to, we create tours that help preserve the beauty and culture of Amsterdam.

NDSM Foundation

A portion of the cost of your tour ticket goes to the NDSM foundation that supports the artists, artisans and other creative businesses in this large cluster of studios in the former shipyard.

“Not many people realize the impact of the squatting movement on Amsterdam. Many beautiful parts of the city would have been demolished if it wasn’t for them. I’ve lived in squats for almost a decade and I’ve learned how to oppose speculation and gentrification with ideals, solidarity and creativity.”
