Amsterdam for Journalists and Writers

Practical help with research, fact finding, inspiration and more

For journalists and writers on Amsterdam subjects, I provide practical help with research, fact finding, inspiration and more. I have studied  extensively over the last 45 years. Lots of knowledge of facts and philosophy are thus stored on my “portable hard drive” inside my head. I can help you with many pointers and ideas.

I have assisted many journalist and writers with walks for the Dutch Tourist Agency in Amsterdam Walks during the last 18 years.

You may get a kick out of the Ambassade hotel Library. Here, famous authors leave signed copies of their work when they stay there.
