Top ways to experience Dampkring Coffeeshop and nearby attractions

The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Actually we visited here by accident in 2001 (close to our hotel), and again in 2003 and 2005 because we loved it! Staff was amazing, and it was such a cool place to meet people from all over. They had a house cat, and a chair outside for those who needed some fresh air! The girl behind the bar (cannot remember her name) invited us to a restaurant her friends had. Quite interesting! Very fond memories of the Dampkring! Someday I'll go again!

This place is cool. It’s a very laid back vibe, they served an amazing milkshake, and the prices for weed are really good. People are usually sitting and smoking and playing cards! They do not serve alcohol, not that I wanted any, but FYI.

I cant go to Amsterdam without visiting my favourite coffeeshop. Great service from all the staff, prices are very reasonable, theybave a good selection of munchies and the fresh milkshakes are to die for. Make sure you visit and have a smoke for me 😉

Interesting place with good weed and some snacks/milkshakes for when you get the munchies. Very quirky inside which adds to the atmosphere.

This was our first time going to a coffee shop. Crowded and no space to sit as a larger group. The man was nice but the woman was very rude, abruptly told us to order a coffee or leave when we hadn’t been told that was a requirement. Then told coldly we were in the wrong space and had to move. We were by a door but had made an effort not to block anything and there were literally no other seats available. Made us feel very unwelcome.

Along with Abraxas perhaps, this is one of the coffee shops people seem to hear about and gravitate to on an Amsterdam visit, and you can see why. A good selection of goods and drinks… plus you can smoke sat at the bar (not tobacco of course!) which still feels a bit of a novelty in Europe since most places banned smoking.
Can’t really fault it. Ok maybe a little cramped when busy but hey

This shop has nothing unique to offer bar an excruciatingly warm indoor environment.
They serve milkshakes etc but I couldn't stick the heat inside longer than 10 minutes

Weed selection isn't anything to write home about

Another one on the ever growing list to visit ( just around the corner from the famous fries place
So when the old
Munchies kick in you know what to do people ! I’ve got you
Covered !!! Busy when we arrived around lunch time manage to squeeze a stool
Seat - again as I’ve mentioned in previous ‘Coffeeshop ‘ reviews don’t ask them what they recommend unless you want ammo or some kind of lemon haze .. get I need some of that exotic potent flower don’t you know !! Tried a few strains and if I’m honest the quality wasn’t the highest but by no means was as bad as bulldog ! Worth a visit but would choose to spend my money elsewhere in future

YES, in case you're wondering: this is the place Anthony Bourdain visited in the episode 'The Layover Amsterdam'. There is a cannabis counter in the back offering a vast menu of cannabis strains, you can buy and consume here or elsewhere. They have pre-rolled joints or you can buy per gram. There is no obligation to consume what you buy here but you are legally allowed to light it up here and order a drink to go with it. Normal tobacco use is not permitted inside.
A WORD OF CAUTION AND DISCLAIMER: if you are not used to smoking cannabis, please be careful and only take a few puffs and then wait at least 15 minutes to check if you still feel comfortable. Do not smoke a whole joint in one go if you're not a regular smoker because you might experience anxiety or paranoia feelings.
The Original Dampkring is a safe place and the atmosphere as you might imagine is very laid back. Unlike mentioned, I didn't see anyone of the personal wear facemasks, so if you're Covid aware, this might not be the safest place to visit at this moment, because even off-peak hours it's still very popular and you'll be lucky to find a free table or bar seat.
