Hello Museum District

For your fix of Dutch culture and Golden Age art in Amsterdam, the Museum District is where you want to be. Works by the likes of Rembrandt and Vermeer represent the highlights of the Rijksmuseum’s magnificent collection, while the Van Gogh Museum and the contemporary Stedelijk complete the trio of renowned cultural institutions. Fancy stretching your legs afterward? The Vondelpark is just around the corner – watch out for the cyclists! – or you can do a spot of window shopping on the PC Hooftstraat. The Museum District not only functions as a place of high culture and learning, however, because if you wander slightly northwest of the Rijksmuseum you’ll stumble across the Leidseplein. As touristy as Leidseplein most certainly is, there are also a couple of really great bars that are worth making the journey for. These include a whiskey bar with over 1,000 different bottles while catching a late film at De Uitkijk – the oldest cinema in the country – is a great option for a more relaxed Friday night.

Stories about Amsterdam

7 cliché activities in Amsterdam you will actually enjoy

7 cliché activities in Amsterdam you will actually enjoy

Amsterdam is one of those cities that is drenched in clichés. I’ve overheard people saying that they thought Amsterdam was itself a country (Holland clearly isn’t interesting enough to benefit from word of mouth publicity), that the Dutch  all wear wooden shoes (imagine the pain!), that Amsterdam is  covered in tulips, and that literally everyone   smokes weed. All. Day. Long. I’m not here to smash your dreams into a thousand tiny pieces, but that’s plain bullcheese. On the other hand, some Amsterdam clichés are true and are definitely worth giving a try. They aren’t clichés for nothing, am I right?
