Going Green is nothing new to the Dutch. Over 400 years ago, the city of Amsterdam planted trees along the canals to “green up” their beautiful city. And, with 400 km of bike paths, it’s a city where green transportation is no joke. 

And there are many other ways the green spirit of the city shows: the city is boosting with initiatives by green startups and conscious entrepreneurs. Explore the fair side of the west side with this true fashion shopping route.

Jump on your bike with this map (or go by foot) and treat yourself to a day of discovering beautiful fashion, furniture, and art.
