The Pipe” is a neighbourhood connected to central Amsterdam by 16 bridges and fondly alluded to as the area behind Heineken brewery. Often referred to as the “Latin Quarter” of the city, it was a 19th century working class area with shoddy tenement blocks built to ease overpopulated Joordan. Today, it is a very vibrant and multi-cultural neighbourhood with its blue-collar roots mixed in with students, artists and young professionals. The artist Piet Mondrian used to live here. Funky boutiques stand beside falafel food stalls and Surinamese shops. The Albert Cuypmarket is located here – Europe’s largest daily street market with an international free-for-all of fresh produce, clothing and quirky Dutch souvenirs.
