I have not had the opportunity or have not put the time to go and visit this place; and it's a shame since it's amazing! Super cool decoration, at the upper floor there is couple of restuarants and bars, and a terrace. 7 floors to...More
What an impressive library. We visited to go to the top floor to view the city views and we were not disappointed.
There are places to eat and drink on the top floor with views which can't be beaten!
Very good location and good views....More
This is a fun, unique library with some surprises inside for visitors. Upon entering, you notice the artistic lighting, which gives you the idea that this is not your typical library. There are many floors to this library. An escalator takes you up level after...More
Too busy! The library is busier than a coffee shop on a Sunday. Wifi is free in the bar area on "ground level" (which is not wheelchair accessible as far as I can see, as it is up a couple of stairs), but on the...More
Located a few minutes away from central station in Oud Zuid („eastern part“), you‘ll find a fine, white building close to the water: This is the central city library, which is open to students, book worms and the general public. There are reading areas, play...More
I envy Dutch students. If I had such library as this one, I think I would have studied more when I was student. The location is a little bit offy, but the library has everything you need in one spot. And the building itself is...More
This was recommended to us by the owner of our B&B.
He was spot on - good food at a good price. The downside was that the terrace was closed. It was dry and cold with no wind and we wanted to take photos, which...More
The library itself is cool to see, but maybe not much of a reason to stop on its own. However, if you are in the area anyways around lunch, it has a nice restaurant on the top story with an excellent view, and that makes...More
We had about an hour to spend between dinner & our tour of the Anne Frank Haus, so going to the Openbare Bibliotheek was a perfect choice. We enjoyed a coffee while perusing the wide variety of magazines. Even for us non-Dutch speakers, we could...More
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
