Many of us choose to work remotely these days with ties to the physical office not as important as they once were. You might need to check your emails between meetings, tie up a few loose ends online at the end of a day or simple want a change of scenery but finding the perfect spot for a bit of surfing can be tricky. We've been looking for a good free Amsterdam Wi-Fi list for some time and after not finding any we decided to research it a little more and create our own. There are a few vitally important things when looking for a place with free wifi to work which are:

  1. A super-fast free Wi-Fi connection
  2. Plugs to charge devices
  3. Good coffee

All of the venues selected below tick all the boxes and are spread out around the city to give you an option for all situations. Make sure to enhance the list with some suggestions of your own in the comments. We'll keep this list updated and add to it so don't be shy to add new ones you find.

10. CT Coffee & Coconuts

A former cinema on the 20's, this is now one of Amsterdam's coolest coffee shops. It screams hipster-cool but that also means they serve a mean cup of coffee. Their excellent free Wi-Fi also means you'll spend hours working away here without being disturbed.
