These establishments were often founded and run by Amsterdam’s rich elite, who considered it their civic duty to care for the city’s less fortunate citizens. But today too, there are plenty of Amsterdammers who dedicate themselves to their fellow citizens and a better society. This tour will take you to a number of locations in the city, each with a link to the civic virtue theme. The trail will take around an hour and a half.
