Are you an architecture enthusiast? Our local creator, Nik, shares his passion on this discovery walk across his neighbourhood, Eastern Docklands. Following in his footsteps, you’ll discover and learn about ‘islands’ connected by usual bridges, warehouses-turned-apartments, curious statues and buildings named after marine mammals… And you’ll get to recharge at the cosiest of cafes too. Fun location-based riddles will lead the way!


This playful walk across this Amsterdam’s modern neighbourhood sharpens your senses and encourages you to appreciate the most wonderful – and often hidden – details around you. Whether you know Amsterdam or just start exploring here, this experience gives you a perspective on discovery that will inspire your curiosity wherever you go next.

We know you’ll love our experiences, but if this is your first, rest assured - you can solve up to three riddles and still get a full refund, or in case of the Wonder Walks - all subscription plans come with one week free trial. See our T&Cs here.
