No longer are museum cafés and restaurants places to grab a quick bite, but many are now restaurants in their own right, aimed at attracting outside diners as well as museum visitors. Here are six of the best eating options in Amsterdam's museums and other attractions.

Hacking Almost Everything in Amsterdam

Housed in the tower of one of Amsterdam's medieval buildings is something quite unexpected--a lab full of machines, incubators, petri dishes, and microbes. It might sound like the beginning of a gothic novel, but this is just where Waag Society's open wetlab--an initiative that strives to make biotechnology more accessible--happens to operate.

If being around really tall people is your kind of thing, go to Holland. The average man is 6'3". And that's without clogs on. As well as clogs, several other C-words can be ascribed to the Netherlands' capital city: canals, coffee shops and culture, for instance; all of which Amsterdam has in abundance.

I wanted to challenge the status quo through design. Nowadays, it's expected that you're happy, batting away friends and have loads to share. Albeit virtual, social media has become the dominant public space and it relies on the expression of such things.

Feeding a growing global population of nine billion people by 2050 is one of the world's biggest challenges--especially in the context of rapid urbanisation, rising amounts of food waste and climate change. During one day of discussions senior executives from agribusiness, policymaking and the NGO community examined approaches to food and nutrition security.

Why we Need to Revolutionise our Study of Cities

One of the key questions academics face with this agenda is whether there are limits we will have to heed with urbanisation. Or in other words, can the expansion of cities be a linear scaling driven by the number its inhabitants.

Why the Dutch Are Better Than Us...

Amsterdam is a city almost designed to be enjoyed on foot. It's not like trying to walk along the Thames in London. It isn't okay and picturesque for a bit and then you have to take a backstreet through a car park and down an alley to get back on to the path.

Leaving home is always going to be hard, be it a semester-long escapade or a few years of study, being thrown into a completely foreign country is terrifying. But it will be the best decision you will ever make in your life, as it is mine.

We've All Had 'Fiery Relationships' - This Was Mine

We have all had 'fiery' relationships. You know the kind, those volatile relationships that vacillate between rage and lust. They are the stuff of bad movies and cult novels. You enter into these relationships knowing the danger, but you do it anyway.

A Cycling Revolution

My journey into this flourishing two-wheeled world was certainly eye opening. There is a whole cycling scene that I simply had no idea existed. Lets kick off with 'Critical Mass'. Who knew that on the last Friday of every month hundreds of cyclists meet under Waterloo bridge for a "self-organized, non-commercial, celebration, spontaneous gathering

Within a trice we were driving through France towards Belgium. The boys had been at a party the night before and so they slept. In addition my musical taste is not theirs so whilst they dozed I was not allowed to listen to music, as my choices would have been too toxic.

European Comedy Tour Journal, Day Eight: Paris

The only thing more annoying than an irritating child being rambunctious on a crowded train, is a child conducting himself in such a manner in French. There is something rather excruciating about hearing incomprehensible high pitched words produced from the back of someone else's throat when you are already of a nauseous disposition.

I'm feeling positively charged already at the prospect of being in a city that allows you to be sovereign of your own consciousness without risk of incarceration. This in my opinion shouldn't be a luxury afforded to you in a very specific geographical location, but a worldwide liberty as an individual...

Shouldn't We All be a Little Bit Gay? Reflections on Amsterdam Gay Pride 2014

Not to be outdone, a bunch of enthusiastic Christians made some noise along the route proclaiming that "Jesus loves you". This was self defeating because it was essentially the whole point of the Parade. It was just another example of how God (whoever he or she may be) should never be invited to parties.

The only voices that weren't heard were the ones of the marauding mountaineers themselves. Too young to comment? Maybe. Or perhaps they were just confused as to why there was an argument in the first place - 'We've got our own museums anyway.'

The man himself was behind the bar when I visited for lunch. We were the only people there for lunch and our arrival didn't exactly bring a smile to Mr Power's face. Put it this way, there are warm welcomes and there are get out of my pub before I kill you welcomes. Try it yourself and see what you get.

This nationwide festival takes the Dutch free-spirited mentality to another zenith, and 2014 is going to be bigger than ever. Why? Because this will be the first year that Amsterdam celebrates King's Day since King Willem-Alexander's inauguration last year. Happy Birthday, HRH!
