One of the best , oldest and most matured coffeeshops in Amsterdam !
De Tweede Kamer is a coffeeshop with roots in the history of authentic Dutch cannabis culture. This coffeeshop has been established since 1985, at the time Dutch cannabis regulations were quite a novelty. The name 'Tweede Kamer' is a playful reference to the Dutch Parliament, and literally means 'Second Room' which is appropriate for the cosy living room feel of the place.
Back in the early days , De Tweede Kamer was the first coffeeshop to start weighing and packaging products in front of the customers. This allowed customers to see, feel, and smell the quality of the wares, in the spirit of openness and transparency that still serves as the shop's philosophy. The staff has incorporated the rule that 'we don't sell anything we wouldn't smoke ourselves', and this ongoing quest for quality is evident in the extensive cannabis menu. No surprise, as the original owner is still present, while some of the veteran employees have been wading knee-deep in the cannabis sector for well over twenty years!
For the experience of the true old-fashion Dutch coffeeshop atmosphere, De Tweede Kamer is the place to be. This place is a testament to the genuine smoker's culture, feeling right at home as soon as taking a seat. De Tweede Kamer has an intimate and cosy feel, supported by a dedicated staff. Local smokers who know where to go visit regularly, so for adding some cultural depth to a quality smoking experience, De Tweede Kamer is definitely the place to visit!

I had never seen such a huge variety as on the menu of the Tweede Kamer coffeeshop in Amsterdam. The quality is very good and I have been smoking for many many years, so I do sort of know what I am talking about ;o) Great vibe, chill staff and busy but still cozy and relaxing.
I love this place. Check it out!!

Been coming here on and off for many years and it is still my favorite and the best coffeeshop in Amsterdam. Staff is always helpful and very friendly, great hash and weed and good music as well! ambiance is very relaxing and the prices are reasonable to good, A must go to when in Amsterdam!
Low-key, small and specialty. This shop is a little tough to find, which is all the better. Employees are a little harsh with tourists but act like a good barkeep for the experienced smoker. Intimate and warm, its alleyway position lends itself to some nice, clandestine people-watching.
