For visitors who want to avoid the well-known tourist spots and discover the locals' favourite addresses, and for residents who want to get to know their city even better. Written by born and bred Amsterdammers, the book includes lists such as the five best vintage markets, the five best small museums and the five best concert venues, with a total 500 locations and facts that few people know. Includes extensive maps and a comprehensive index.

Saskia also writes about city life and travel for the Amsterdam newspaper Het Parool; Guido writes for a.o. de Volkskrant and co-edited a travel guide about communist heritage in Eastern Europe.
