is a conversation
is an encounter
is an exchange
is a connection
is a moment
is a journey
Ondergronds is named for those exceptional conversations below the surface.
While travelling through Amsterdam on a daily basis, we pass by hundreds of strangers and rarely get a chance to connect. Ondergronds allows you to have a real conversation with one of those strangers – perhaps the connection will last, perhaps it may inspire other conversations on your daily travels.
