The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
This was the first museum of this kind we were into. You get to see some interesting things under the microscope, how the food looks when its rotten among the other things. You can also try to collect all the stamps.
They offer candlelight concerts (once a month?) and they are reasonably priced and it's a gorgeous way to experience the synagogue. What an extraordinary space and very inspiring, to think of the sanctuary that this city offered as early as the 1600's.
A modern, well equipped and well managed museum. The audio tour is very well done. The exhibition is informative and provides a lot of information about the impact of the war on the daily lives of ordinary people. Also the temporary exhibition on "Fashion during the war" was interesting and well presented.
It is a pretty neat idea that you can walk through the house where Rembrandt lived, sold his pantings and taught his students to become painters. Also, you can see the large collection of busts, shells and prepared animals he and his students used for studies. The audio tour tells more about the rooms and what they were used for....
Perfect decision for something a little different. Try the Haydari with some bread and the mixed grill! Chocolate pistachio mousse is divine. Perfect location! Absolutely delicious, so much food and what a nice atmosphere. The staff are the best! Will definitely come back!! 😊😊

"Well worth the detour outside Amsterdam Centre"
reviewed 4 weeks ago by paulvA2058RO
During the corona crisis Restaurant Elkaar offered a takeaway menu that was a representation of their normal menu. Unfortunately, that service has stopped, but the food in those 14 weeks was excellent and the service exemplary. I tried to shop local and varied as much as I could, but this restaurant was every Sunday on my list.
I enjoyed every...
Excellent!! My husband had the phillycheese steak sandwich and I had the healthy sandwich with onion & mayo. Lovely little cafe with great food & large portions. Defo recommend a visit if your in the area 😀
I will definitely recommend this hotel. It is situated in a quiet area of Amsterdam but walking distance to the city centre. The room is spacious with all what you need. The bathroom is huge and modern. The bed is very comfortable. There is even Nespresso in the room. Loved it. The staff are very friendly and always willing to...
Stayed at the property for a year, it feels like home in Amsterdam. We cannot go back from the standards that the team here has built for us. They literally spoilt us with being so accommodating and wonderful hosts. Loved every bit of experience at Wittenberg. It is worth ever penny.
I would definitely come back! I will recommend this hotel to all of my friends and family. Very nice hotel and friendly Service. The hotel was near Amsterdam City, it is only like 5 min away. Aswell there is a super market about 2 min.
From the moment we arrived the staff were friendly and helpful, always available at any time of the day. Allowed check in earlier than advertised which was really helpful and unexpected. The hotel felt very clean and therefore safe especially under the current circumstances. Rooms are compact but have everything you need and don’t scrimp in quality and amenities. If...
"Fabulous staff, contemporary rooms, 5 star service"

A much delayed review as I stayed in January before the whole corona crisis, but the hotel has left quite an impression for our family so I had to come back to recommend.
The five star service, cleanliness of the hotel, contemporary and luxurious interior, it had all the amenities you would need on a city trip. Not a flimsy...
