Starting in De Pijp, I went for a walk through Museumplein, Vondelpark, the canal area, the Jordaan and, finally, walked to the Oosterdokseiland and the Muziekgebouw aan’t IJ concert hall near the Passenger Terminal.

The Kleine-Gartmanplantsoen is a square in Amsterdam near Leidseplein. It contains 40 bronze statues of iguanas and lizards made by artist Hans van Houwelingen.

Sarphatipark is a small park located in De Pijp, in Amsterdam. It is named after the Jewish doctor and philanthropist Samuel Sarphati.
