Noorderlicht means ‘Northern lights’, and this lovely greenhouse hangout on the shores of the IJ in NDSM Wharf is just as magical as its name suggests.

Enjoying a prime spot by the water, with a grassy garden that ambles down to the shore, Noorderlicht is a hub of creative energy and lovely beer, and a wonderful place to be at any time of the year. In summer, there’s an outdoor bar and a stage for live music and other performances (we once caught a most excellent didgeridoo set there). We find it just as magical in winter – especially on stormy days when you can snuggle up and keep warm with some good food and watch the waves crashing around outside.
