The Dutch and Belgium website of Secret Escapes launched more than a year ago. In June 2016 we opened up an office on the Keizersgracht in Amsterdam. The office and the location is great. There are a lot of eating option in the close vicinity of the office. Or you can just grab something to go and enjoy our lunch on our sunny rooftop terrace! We are a team of 5 in the Amsterdam office with ambitious growth plans. Once a month we travel to the Berlin office. It is always great to catch up with other team members, share best practices and enjoy after work drinks and food.
