DIY GPS City Tours

Discover the city at your own pace. You can even choose your own distance and purpose, by picking one of 3 routes! All you need is a print-out* of the tour route plus your smartphone with QR scanner.

Here's a QR scanner for iPhone:

Tours (the actual tour files will be uploaded soon!):
- Long sight-seeing tour:
Discover both the famous tourist attractions in the city center, as well as the hidden treasures in a 4,5km long walk.

- Short sight-seeing tour:
Discover the favorite highlights of downtown Amsterdam in this 3km walk!

- Surprise puzzle tour:
Walk criss-cross around the city, and answer a question at 10 different locations to create a 10-letter Dutch word. Bring your answer to the party (on the printed sheet), and if you solved the puzzle correctly, you win a free Appsterdam T-shirt!

*Printed copies of the tour routes will be available at Bouncespace, aka "Appsterdam Centraal," located at the old Booking.com building on Weteringschans 28.

The starting time is, of course, just an indicator. If you print out the tour route yourself, you can start any time you like! Several other tours are happening at the same time, all tours finish at Nieuwmarkt around 16:00

    For Android users: I've changed the app tip in the description.
    Best way to use is scan the code and then select "Get directions"

    Thanks to Raul Portales for testing!

    For those who have downloaded the iOS app "QRReader", that was linked here earlier, after some testing I found out the app "scan" works a lot better with geo locations! I've replaced the link with that one.
