This is a historic building that tries to share with visitors a slice of life in Rembrandt's time. Most of the artwork are of Rembrandt's disciples and their practice pieces. If you set aside your expectations, you might find it enjoyable. If you are expecting...More

The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying

town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
