The Rijksmuseum is a must-see after the reconstruction works. The building itself is beautiful and the collection is great.

Good to go and see. There are plenty of bits to look at - go early as it gets very crowded later on. The old musical instruments and jewellery was a highlight. Personally I think unless you're planning on reading everything you can get around...More

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
