Amsterdam in a series of waterproof and tear-resistant, pocket street maps with their handy 10x10cm format cleverly concealing a collection of plans and road maps, plus a wealth of tourist information.
On one side is a street plan of the city at 1:15,000 approx., extending well beyond the canal girdle to include the whole of the Vondelpark, Rembrandt Park, the Pijp district and most of the old eastern docks. Tram routes are shown with stops and line numbers, and metro stations are marked. The plan highlights numerous places of interest and selected hotels. The index lists only main streets.
On the reverse, Amsterdam’s historic centre is shown in greater detail. A road map of the city’s outer districts and suburbs shows the surrounding motorway network with access to the Schiphol airport. Also included is a small map of the central part of the Netherlands with suggestions for day trips, plus a diagram shows the city’s metro and tram network.
Two illustrated panels have descriptions of main sites in the city, and further panels provide information on the city’s history and its main districts, listings of museums and other sights, and even a small phrasebook.
