Why locals love it
This building has been a church, school and a printing business. It was squatted in the 90's by a collective of creative international people. Since 2000 this group officially owns the place and they are organizing a lot of events. Every Thursday the 'Dokkers' open their bar and they will cook for you.
Why you should visit it
Visit Plantage Doklaan if you want to have an intelligent conversation with one of the regular visitors or maybe the Dokkers themselves. About the artwork on the wall. About the Liberal Arts that are going on. About the history of Amsterdam. Or maybe about the great food that they will make you for just €5,-.
If you are open to all kinds of art, curious and respectful, this might be one of your best experiences in Amsterdam.
