The Rijksmuseum is Amsterdam's most popular museum. No wonder, here you can admire high-ranking artworks of the old masters like Rembrandt's Night Watch but also paintings of Jan Vermeer, Frans Hals or Jan Steen. But also the building itself is worth seeing with its towers and elements of the Neo-Gothic and Renaissance! There are approximately 8,000 masterpieces in the museum, especially the collection from the Golden Age of the Netherlands are of great value.

Among them is one of the most famous works, the Sunflowers, which the artist painted in numerous versions. Van Gogh's self-portrait in front of his easel or the still life of his bedroom in Arles can also be admired here. In addition to the famous paintings, the Van Gogh Museum also houses over 500 drawings by the artist and 700 of his letters. Besides the works of Van Gogh, the museum shows pictures of his companions such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Claude Monet or Paul Gauguin.
Fancy a walk or a cycle ride in the countryside? Then you should definitely take a spin through the Vondelpark. This is a popular meeting place for young and old and is known as the "green lung of Amsterdam". The Botanical Garden was the city's first public park. Today it is a great place to relax. A break with a picnic or a book or a walk along the water or through the rose garden is a great way to switch off. In the summer, Vondelpark regularly hosts concerts, open-air cinemas and cabaret performances.
In the centre of Amsterdam is the Paleis op de Dam, the Royal Palace on Dam Square. The central main square was named after the dam, which was built in the 13th century. On this square are several historic buildings such as the Royal Palace, the Nieuwe Kerk and the Old Town Hall. A visit to the Royal Palace is well worth it! The palace, which dates back to the 17th century, first had the function of a city hall. Then Napoleon Bonaparte gave the palace to his brother, who was to be Holland's king, as his residence. Since 1939, the palace has been the property of the Dutch royal family and primarily serves as a venue for events and exhibitions and can be visited by visitors.
