What is it?
The Lastage area was a marshy land east of the center of Amsterdam till the 16th century. Nowadays it is a popular neighbourhood due to its relative tranquility in the midst of a lively central location in the city.
Why do I like it so much?
Amsterdam is known as the biggest village in the world. In the Lastage you can see why. You will find a good combination of history, beautiful canals, nice little streets, good restaurants and fine bars without the crowds.
My favourite restaurants
Blauw aan de Wal.
Fine dining in the red light district.
Small Italian restuarant with good atmosphere and food.
Western part of the city.
Excellent Dutch food in center Amsterdam
