QO Amsterdam Ambassador Favorites

Out and about in Amsterdam – February

Our Amsterdam Ambassadors like to share their love and knowledge of the city with you. Offering you insights in things to do, places to visit and people to meet.

We take great pride in curating a list of events each month. When cultivating our list of “Amsterdam Favorites for the Month” we are always on the lookout for that off the beaten track, which in turn opens up a different and inspirational side of Amsterdam to you.

Therefore we connect you to the city and help shape your experience.

Here it goes!

A Second Life

De KLOFFIE Markt is a vintage market where you can find a selection of second-hand designers, ethical fashion labels, vintage treasures and rare collector’s items. This market is a hub for those interested and inspired by fashion. Take a stroll through the market to find some hidden gems to give a second life.

When done shopping you can enter the adjacent Foodhallen and enjoy some nice food. So this culminates into a proper afternoon out in Amsterdam West.
