The beer bike can be banned from central Amsterdam, judges say

1 November 2017

The beer bike can be banned from central Amsterdam, judges say City officials can ban the beer bike from central Amsterdam after all, judges ruled on Tuesday. The ruling clears the way for the introduction of a ban on November 1, the Parool reported.

The court said the problems caused by the beer bikes – noise, public drunkenness and urination in public – are currently concentrated in a small part of the city and this is creating a public order problem.

The beer bike has become a symbol of the problems caused by too much tourism in the city centre.
