Places to Stay


Reasons to Visit

BodyWorlds Exhibition

Gunther von Hagens’ BODY WORLDS: The Happiness Project is an absolute must-see exhibition in the heart of Amsterdam. It tells the amazing story of our own body and the impact of happiness on our health. More than 200 anatomical specimens of real human bodies show the complexity, resilience and vulnerability of the body.

Nemo Science Centre

Using a variety of playful exhibitions, Science Center NEMO introduces young and old to the world of science and technology. Its five floors are filled with continuously updated exhibitions, theatre performances, films, workshops and demonstrations. Everything is interactive, so everyone can join in with the fun and learning, especially in NEMO's Laboratory.

Micropia

We are all constantly surrounded by – even covered in – microorganisms such as bacteria. But while many people harbour negative associations with the word ‘bacteria’, most of them are actually good for us, helping us, for example, to protect our body against outside influences. At the innovative new Micropia museum, you can get acquainted with these invisible organisms. If you look at this world really closely, a new one opens up.

Artis Royal Zoo

Artis Royal Zoo was the first zoo to be established in the Netherlands, located right in the centre of Amsterdam. It is home to some 750 species of animals, including zebras, giraffes, elephants and chimpanzees. It is also home to the biggest Planetarium in the Netherlands.

Science Park Amsterdam

Amsterdam Science Park has a special focus on ICT and life sciences, and is home to several prominent research institutions as well as the University of Amsterdam (UvA) Faculty of Science. The park is a joint venture from the University of Amsterdam (UvA), the City of Amsterdam and the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).

Amsterdam Canal Cruise

An essential component of any trip to Amsterdam, a boat cruise along the canal can be arranged. Please contact us for details and prices.

Amsterdam Dungeon

Bringing 500 years of dark history to life in one terrifying experience, The Amsterdam Dungeon, a relatively new attraction to the city, takes visitors on a virtual journey through its gruesome past. On arrival, the sight of skeletons and the sounds of dark, Gregorian chanting makes for an eerie welcoming to the horrors of medieval Amsterdam.

Walibi Holland Theme Park

This theme park enjoys a reputation as Europe’s top spot for rollercoasters. There are more than 50 attractions and shows.

Rijksmuseum

This is the largest museum in the Netherlands. There is a large selection of paintings from the 15th century, until around 1850, as well as decorative and oriental arts. If you only have limited time, head for the Dutch Masters on the 2nd floor, including Rembrandt’s ‘Night Watch’.

Van Gogh Museum

Over 200 paintings and 500 drawings by Van Gogh are housed here, as part of the permanent collection as well as a selection of his Japanese prints and a good selection of work by his contemporaries, such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin and Monet.

Coster Diamond Factory and Museum

Each year, about 340.000 visitors come to see the Coster Diamonds craftsmen at work. Free guided tours demonstrate how the diamonds are cut and polished. The museum has excellent interactive exhibits with a 5 - 10 minute introductory video presentation.
