I cannot recommend this highly enough. Both of these museums are well worth time time. Pieter was an absolute superstar of a guide and helped us get the most from both. For Rijksmuseum, he explained the nuances and key features of the Dutch masters (which certainly we would not have picked up on our own). And for Van Gough, he... More

About our tour to Italy “Italian Wonders” September 4th – September 14th, 2016. Unfortunately, not everything was perfect on our trip. First, what is with the constant changing of hotels? When it was mentioned on our documents that a change is possible, we understood that hotels will be equal with a level and proximity to areas with restaurants, attractions, etc.!... More

The trip covered many aspects of Nederland's past with visits to places covering cheese making, clog making, waffle baking, wind mills (the original purpose as well as various other uses) and how the land was drained and...

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
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 destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
