This a world class art museum which is a must see, Spent many hours there including a coffee break with Dutch waffles. Rembrandt's Night Watch is mesmerising as you walk down the grand hall. Also good to go to Heritage Museum which has more details...More

If you want to go to a specific museum like Anne Frank's house, Van gogh, you need to book online for a specific time, as many days in advance as you can. The I Amsterdam sign is always busy

We stayed in a B&B 1 1/2 blocks from the Concertgebouw. Easy walk to the nearby museums, some of the best in the world. Close to a tram stop, from which you can reach almost anywhere else. Big park. Lots of dining and drinking options...More

Great if you want to cram in visits to museums in a couple of days. Advance booking recommended due to queues on the day. The whole area is a bit tatty given it's a major tourist area.

Enjoyed walking through this area every day. There is a large grass area to sit, several museums to visit and a number of street food stalls. There is also the ‘I Amsterdam ‘ sign

We stayed in Hotel Piet Hein across from Vondel park. The pros of the area: It's quiet at night, safe during the daytime and night-time, well maintained, pretty decent for transport (Tram 12 to central, tram 3 to Haarlemplein) and is obviously the closest area...More

lots to do and see for all ages, from educational exhibits and fun activities to serious culture for grown-ups. Very attractive place to meet friends and share a coffee or drink in the Rijksmuseum gardens.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
