Alles in Amsterdam is gezellig. Everything in Amsterdam is gezellig, a Dutch descriptive word that is not found in any other language and can only be loosely translated as cozy. Gezellig is easier to experience than to define. Roam the streets of Amsterdam, wander into the past through its streets and alleys, sit on a terrace of a café with a beer in hand or a cup of warm koffie-verkeerd in dim light, you’ll feel gezellig and right at home with the modern urban flair that the city exudes. Here’s a tip: Amsterdam is best explored on foot or by bike. And, if you want to go for a cup of coffee in Amsterdam, do not go to a “coffee shop”, go to a cafe instead. “Coffee shop” in the city is for smoking weed not drinking coffee.
