Museumsplein holds some of the best Museums in the City. Such as but not limited to: Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum or the famous Amsterdam sign. You can spend a full day here and you will not be able to cover all museums. My favourite...More

Very spacious, green, well-kept park with places to sit and picknick and surrounded by very important Amsterdam Museums. This 'square' is really a park now and you can go to the Rijksmuseum (with Rembrandts Night Watch), the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam (Amsterdam...More

A large, lovely open space where several museum (art galleries) live. Each museum is well worth a visit and can take some time, depending on your interest. We booked tickets early so as to plan our days there. Entry to the Van Gogh museum is...More

Even if you are not wanting to wait in line for the museums, just wandering in around the place and taking in the amazing architecture and layout is worthwhile.

This is an easily accessible large green space. It is right near the Van Gough Museum and the Anne Frank house. People were out in drones, eating, sleeping, reading, paying sports and just hanging out with their families or friends. It was a very relaxing...More

This is not a square you would travel to see but given its proximity to many museums you are quite likely to find yourself here at some stage during your stay in Amsterdam. Home to the large 'I Amsterdam' sign the park is usually very...More

Your eyes adjust from the dim Museum interios to the natural hopefully sunfilled breathing space that is the green lung of the Museum area

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
