Beautiful city museum, with a bicycle lane that just goes through the building!
A very old, beautiful museum housing all kinds of stuff from Dutch history including Rembrandt and Vermeer paintings, as well as armor, boat models, artifacts, etc. Rembrandt's most famous painting, The Night Watch, is here.
The Rijksmuseum (National Museum) was founded in The Hague on 19 november 1798 and moved to Amsterdam in 1808, where it was first located in the Royal Palace on Dam Square and later in the Trippenhuis. The current main building was designed by Pierre Cuypers and first opened in 1885. Pierre Cuypers…
Don't miss out on the newly renovated Rijksmuseum with reopened in 2013 after an extensive 10 year renovation
Only 1,5 kilometers away to see some of the best paintings from the middle ages. Make sure you see the famous 'Nachtwacht' by Rembrandt van Rijn
“Houses most of Van Gogh's work in basically chronological order (except for Starry Night, which is at the Met in NYC). Tickets sell out quickly for it, so reserve online in advance.”
“Similar to Central Park in New York City, with its expansive natural areas. Very beautiful park that is often filled with people on nice, sunny days. It is located in the Old South section of Amsterdam, a very affluent area.”
“You need a timed reservation to enter, which sells out quickly, but they release a few new tickets each day at 9am, 10am, and 12pm. As you probably know, this is where Anne Frank and her family and friends hid during the Nazi occupation of Amsterdam before they were betrayed.”
“Probably the most well known market in Amsterdam, with stands selling everything from shoes and luggage to fresh vegetables and fish. You’ll also find typical Dutch treats like raw herring or warm, freshly made stroopwafels. The market is situated in the heart of the De Pijp district, one of Amsterdam's liveliest areas, filled with (ethnic) shops, cafés, restaurants, and cosy bars... Definitely get a matcha latte at Matcha Mafia.”
