To me it seems unfortunate that only two ceilings are available for viewing to the public, while the rest of this large house is private offices. Those two ceilings are extravagently painted and worth seeing if you are in the neighborhood anyway-- the Rembrandt House is just up the street--but I would not go out of my way to find... More

Really not much to see except for the gorgeous, magnificent painted ceiling. If you're nearby, stop in, there's no charge & it will only take 5 minutes of your touring time. If you don't get a chance to see it, don't despair, there are many more interesting sights in Amsterdam.

Because of my curiousity what it is behind the green door of the big white house number 69, I decided to go inside. It was a library in the past and now? It is still a library but....a swapping library. You can bring your book there and swap it with another book that you want to have it. Isn't it... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
