Welcome Walks

Want to get to know your neighbourhood? Learn about all the practical matters and fun activities near you with our self-guided walks!

Ready to get to know your neighbourhood? Our self-guided Welcome Walks will cover the basics you need in your day to day life, as well as the hidden gems that make your corner of the city unique!

The tours started out as a way for international students to learn about all the practical information and fun activities in their new neighbourhood. Now, in the time of Corona, we've redesigned them to be self-guided so you can go for a solo stroll to discover all your neighbourhood has to offer.

You can download the routes for the following neighbourhoods:

Ebbingekwartier/Binnenstad Noord





We’ll be launching more guides in the future, so check back soon! All of the routes are available as downloadable PDFs, but you can always swing by our shop to grab a print version.
