Most Sustainable Hotel in the Netherlands
Green Amsterdam regularly gets asked for green hotel recommendations, so we decided to dive into the Amsterdam sustainable hotel world. First on our list was Hotel Jakarta, declared the most sustainable hotel in The Netherlands. We had to see that for ourselves! This 4-star hotel on Java-Island opened just nine months ago and oozes luxury, in a natural way. In reference to Java, the hotel is inspired by Indonesia, which you find in all kinds of details in the hotel.
Sustainable House Boats
Want to escape the busy city life and enjoy some vega(n) food? Head over to the circular paradise called De Ceuvel in Amsterdam North! This sustainable project looks like a secluded mini village of house boats where you can find creative workspaces, a cultural centre, a floating hotel and a cafe-restaurant. You can sit on the terrace at the water in seats made of old boats or seclude yourself on a raft. And in summer time you can even take a refreshing dive in the old shipyard!

Tomatoes are one of my favorite vegetables (or fruit, whatever). The thing about the average tomato in the Dutch supermarket is, you never know what to expect. One day they’re orange and tasteless, the next they’re watery and hard. And if there’s one thing that turns me off, it’s watery, tasteless tomatoes.
Plant based fast food
Most vegans have the urge to eat some junk food every now and then, just like normal people 😀 Luckily we have two, almost three, Vegan Junkfood Bars in Amsterdam serving a 100% plant based snack menu.
Typical Dutch Food and best places to eat it in Amsterdam
What is typical Dutch food? The Dutch have a hard time explaining their ‘cuisine’ to outsiders. As a Dutch citizen I’ve heard it numerous times from people around the globe: We have a lousy kitchen. And truth be told, it might not be the most divine cuisine in the world, however there are some typical Dutch foods even foreigners can’t resist.
