Amsterdam is known for its Red Light district, but it also has some amazing coffeeshops! You can find a wide variety of strains here at great prices. If you’re looking for something more specific though, I recommend checking out these four:

Amnesia Coffeeshop

Address: Herengracht 543, 1017 PH Amsterdam, Netherlands

If you’re looking for a place to buy some weed, there are some essentials to keep in mind when choosing the right coffeeshop. First and foremost, check out their menu online before your trip (the best ones will have an extensive selection). If you don’t know what store sells what products and how much they cost per gram, then it can be overwhelming once you get there. The second thing is location: Is it easy to find? Is parking available nearby? Finally—and most importantly—what kind of experience does this particular shop provide its patrons? Does it specialize in certain strains or concentrates? Are there games or activities like pool or ping pong tables inside that might make your visit more enjoyable than others?

Location: Overtoom 301

Hours: 11 a.m.-10 p.m. daily

What to expect: The first thing you’ll notice when you walk into Dampkring is the scent of freshly baked bread wafting in from the bakery next door. You can’t miss it—the front display case is filled with pastries, cookies, and other snacks that are sure to make your mouth water (and distract you from all those pretty plants). While there’s no seating area in the coffeeshop itself, there’s plenty of space outside on their patio if you want to enjoy them with a view of the street.

What to do: Eat some cookies! Or pick up some pastries for later! Or maybe just buy some weed? In all seriousness, this coffeeshop has been around since 1970 and should definitely be added to your list if only so that you can say “I’ve been here.” It’s one block away from Leidseplein square (another must-see) and also close enough for anyone staying at one of Amsterdam’s famous hotels such as Hotel Pulitzer or Park Plaza Victoria Amsterdam Centraal Station .

Barney’s Uptown

You can find Barney’s Uptown on Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal 5. This shop opened in 1997 and is one of the oldest coffeeshops in Amsterdam. It boasts a great selection of weed and hash, including some amazing local strains you won’t find anywhere else in town.

It’s also one of the few shops where you can buy your bud and smoke it right there on the spot. If you’re looking for a place to chill out with friends or just enjoy some time alone while getting high, this is an excellent choice!

Bluebird Coffeeshop

Bluebird Coffeeshop is one of the best in Amsterdam, and while it’s not as well-known as its more famous neighbors, it’s absolutely worth your time. Located a short walk away from Dam Square and right next to the canal, Bluebird is known for its high-quality cannabis and warm atmosphere.

Visiting this coffee shop can be a bit overwhelming if you’re not used to smoking pot or finding yourself in Amsterdam coffeeshops (which is understandable). But don’t worry—we’re here to help! Here are some tips for making sure you have an enjoyable time at Bluebird.

Coffee Shop Tweede Kamer

Coffee Shop Tweede Kamer is located on Utrechtsestraat 27, Amsterdam. This coffeeshop is a small establishment that offers a cozy atmosphere for its patrons to enjoy their favorite herb in peace. The staff is friendly and helpful and will make sure you have everything you need before leaving.


Amsterdam is an amazing city, and I am so glad that I got to experience it. The coffeeshops have some of the best cannabis in the world, and they are also very affordable. Whether you are new to the world of weed or an old pro looking for something new, Amsterdam has something that will satisfy your cravings!
