For a more laid-back out of the "tourist trap" zone feel, try the Rusland

Coffeeshop Rusland was the first legal coffeeshop in Amsterdam, it’s also the oldest in the Netherlands! With license No. 001, she opened her doors on 30 April 1975.

The coffeeshop is spacious with several floors, including a large smoking room, and in every room a smart TV with live sports everyday.

Nicht schlecht!

Der Shop ist schön ausgestattet und geräumig. Da er ziemlich zentral ist, gibt es natürlich Zeiten an denen es sehr voll wird, doch das spricht natürlich auch eher für den shop. Die Qualität des weeds war guter Standart, jedoch nichts mit wow-Faktor. Absolut einen Abstecher... Full details

Rusland Remodelled!

I always visited the Rusland coffeeshop for many years, especially when nearby Greenhouse coffeeshop is overloaded. SO around the corner, it is very nice to go to a chilled out place like rusland. The menu was always solid but it has really gotten better lately also, around the time of the new remodel so i... Full details

Disappointed

The spacecake is really really bad. I felt nothing after eating one. And my tolerance is pretty low. They rip you  off i would recommend shops like boerejongens and the stud. More away from the centre of the city but with better qaulity. Full details

It's in a quiet lane some 20 min walk from Amsterdam Centraal.Marijuana menu: Nice menu of weeds, hash and pre-rolled joints (ranging from 2 to 5 Euros per joint).Service... Full details

Average menu but fair priced

Clean and fresh, Rusland is split across 3 levels with lots of comfy seating and a large smoking area. Decent menu. Good selection of strains, good quality and fair price. They also have a decent selection of hash. Friendly service. Seems to be more of a locals shop that allows tourists... Full details

A little bit off the beaten track but well worth the walk and the milk and yoghurt shakes were great

Quite comfortable, but mind the wire to the television upstairs (corner seat, you'll know it). Steps a bit steep when stoned & carrying two drinks, so the wife told me.Marijuana menu: Nice Desert Bud, lots of crystals on it and went very nice and crumbly, made you very thirsty, just as well we liked the...

This is the oldest coffee shop in Amsterdam

Nice decor, and plenty of space to sit and relax. The seating would have been rated 10 for comfort had they not put a ledge running round the whole place that dug into my back whilst attempting to lounge.....It is a little dark!Marijuana menu: Was short and sweet....They have AK47 on the menu... I tried some... Full details
