The relaxed laws in the city allow millions of tourists to blaze up there each year. There are dozens of coffeeshops to choose from. Some are bustling hives of activity, whereas others are much more mellow. Each venue boasts its own unique vibe, meaning there is something for every smoker.

To save you from trekking around the city in search of your favourite weed spot, we’ve assembled a list of the top 10 coffeeshops Amsterdam has to offer in 2020.

1. BOEREJONGENS

Boerejongens deem themselves the best coffeeshops in Amsterdam, and they might be right. They have four sites across the city, including Boerejongens West, Center, BIJ, and Coffeeshop Sloterdijk. Everyone who visits this chain reports the same thing: exceptional quality. Each site is spotless and features a classy wooden interior and old-school lighting.

Their budtenders are highly trained, knowledgeable, and welcoming. What's more, their three-piece suits and bowler hats add to the sophisticated vibe.

2. DAMPKRING (COFFEESHOP AMSTERDAM)

Dampkring is another high-end coffeeshop. It’s an 18-minute walk from Centraal Station, so you can soak in the city on the way there. Dampkring has set itself apart from many of the coffeeshops that line the streets of Amsterdam. Many of these establishments are dark, overcrowded, and some even intimidating. Dampkring has turned this stereotype on its head. The venue is bright, spacious, and clean. The interior draws from Arabic, Bohemian, and Buddhist sources to create a tranquil and relaxing vibe. On top of this, the staff are helpful and super friendly.

Even experienced smokers will be shocked by the size of the menu. There’s a long list of strains, including Cheese, Sour OG, AK-47, Bubba Kush, and Gorilla Glue #4. The menu describes the taste, smell, and effect of every item—you’ll know exactly what you’re buying.

5. AMNESIA

Amnesia has earned its title. Your short-term memory will likely be compromised several minutes after you enter this coffeeshop. The prices at Amnesia are relatively high compared to its competitors, but there’s a reason for this; their buds are compact, perfectly manicured, and loaded with trichomes. The venue is located on the stunning Prinsengracht canal and provides a large selection of vapes and bongs for customers to use. If you’re feeling particularly wired, feel free to play the board games!

The interior is super relaxing. Dark furniture, purple decor, and soft lighting set the tone. The menu is nothing to be scoffed at. You’ll spot strains such as Killa Kush, LSD, and Cookies Kush. If you’re in the mood to get extra trippy, try out their award-winning Amnesia Time Bomb edible.

6. 1E HULP

1e Hulp brings chill to another level. The interior draws inspiration from East Asian design, with deep red colours and wooden decor lining the walls. The seating and tables are low to the ground, and the soft lights add just the right touch of illumination. Overall, this coffeeshop is a delightful place to blaze up. It’s a must when visiting the city.

Experienced smokers looking to shatter their tolerance won’t have much trouble. They offer incredibly potent moonrocks and infused hot chocolate with 70mg of THC. If you’re in the mood to get buzzed, try out their WIFI OG or Lindsay OG. If you fancy something chill, don’t miss out on the Pink Sunset and White Widow.

7. TWEEDE KAMER

Tweede Kamer is a highly respected coffeeshop, so much so that it featured in Zamnesia’s Coffeeshop Awards 2019. It’s located in the very centre of Amsterdam and has been serving locals and tourists since 1985. The venue made history as the first establishment in the city to start weighing and packaging their flowers, allowing customers to smell their products and view them up close.

Tweede Kamer boasts an extraordinarily comforting and classic interior. The wood-panelled tables and bar alongside old-school light fixtures add some serious character. The menu is extensive and has something for every taste. Choose from sativas such as Blackberry Glue Haze and Amnesia, and indicas like Girl Scout Choco and Choco Skunk.

9. KADINSKY

Kadinsky provides a relaxing and calming space. It’s an excellent coffeeshop to visit when you need a break from the hustle and bustle of the city streets.

The bar—positioned under several spotlights—stands out in the room, and large windows allow you to do some excellent people watching.

Pay it a visit and sample some Temple Ball Hash, Mango Haze, and AK-47.
