Van Gogh Museum

This museum in Amsterdam has the world's largest collection of famous Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh's works, from paintings to sketches and even letters. The museum chronicles the artist's career, from his years living in Nuenen, Netherlands, beginning in 1880, up to his years in France and till his death in 1890. Some of Van Gogh's most famous works are on display in these galleries, including The Potato Eaters, Sunflowers, and Bedroom in Arles. The museum also chronicles works by some of Van Gogh's artist friends and inspirations, including Toulouse-Lautrec and Paul Gauguin, with whom Van Gogh had a close friendship, and Jean-François Millet.


Rijksmuseum, also known as the National Museum, is considered a true national treasure. It features a vast collection of artworks and historic artifacts from the Middle Ages to contemporary times, creating a veritable range of cultural riches. Its exhibits include the paintings of Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals and Jan Steen from the country's 17th-century Golden Age. Rembrandt's Night Watch is the museum's centerpiece. Visitors will also find works from the Middle Ages and the 18th and 19th Centuries, superb collections of silver and Delftware ceramics, old doll houses, and fantastic examples of Asian art. After undergoing renovation, the museum's 1885 Renaissance Revival building was diligently restored and revamped to accommodate modern infrastructure. The museum building itself is a masterpiece of art and architecture, designed by Pierre Cuypers and ornamented with sculptures, paintings, tile tableaus, and stained glass that allude to the nation's rich history.

The Jordaan

One of the city's oldest neighborhoods, the Jordaan traces its roots to the 17th Century as an area built for the working class. The neighborhood has since transformed into an upscale quarter. Today, the Jordaan is a harmonious blend of the old and new, with charming historical courtyards, stellar art galleries, and great dining options. Of particular interest are the weekly markets held at Noordermarkt, Lindengracht and Westerstraat, the Jordaan Museum, and the Westerkerk with its lofty bell tower. Over the years, the neighborhood's diverse makeup has also given rise to a distinctive musical style that is still celebrated through performances at Jordaan's many bars and cafes. Down the streets and along the canals of Jordaan, quaint historic homes and contemporary attractions vie for the attention of passersby.

Amsterdam Canal District

Grachtengordel, also known as the Amsterdam Canal District, is one of Amsterdam's cultural hubs. Declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this district comprises four principal canals, namely the Singel, the Herengracht, the Keizersgracht, and the Prinsengracht canals, a historic network that dates back to the 17th Century. This neighborhood is also noteworthy for its impeccable urban planning, which has endured for centuries. A major landmark situated in this area is the Anne Frank House, which is a museum commemorating the Jewish writer Anne Frank.

Anne Frank House

The story of Anne Frank is one that is known the world over. Featuring an unforgettable personal account of the Holocaust, it is now preserved at the Anne Frank House. Spurred by the German occupation of The Netherlands and the subsequent persecution of the Jewish community, Anne went into hiding with her family on July 6, 1942. Over the course of two years, Anne maintained a diary detailing life in the Annex, that was later published by her father. Although there aren't many memorabilia, films and other sources—including Anne's diary—present a vivid picture of what life was like during those times. The museum opened on May 3, 1960, and the enormous visitors' center was constructed in the 1980s.


Established in the 19th Century, this large park is one of the most-visited spots in the city. Sharing its name with the poet Joost van den Vondel (1587-1679), whose statue was unveiled here in 1867, the park features a picturesque landscape defined by lush lawns, scenic lakes and leafy trees. Tranquil and serene, Vondelpark is a restful haven for citizens away from the city's hubbub. Come here for inline skating, let your children play in the large playground or enjoy some refreshments at one of the park's restaurants.
