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 a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
Very cool exploration of the microscopic world. This is a truly unique museum. Learn about bacteria and viruses. Covers everything from diseases to soil to fermentation (i.e. beer), with interactive exhibits. The olfactory (smell) display is quite interesting. I highly recommend if you are in to the microscopic world and looking through microscopes.
They offer candlelight concerts (once a month?) and they are reasonably priced and it's a gorgeous way to experience the synagogue. What an extraordinary space and very inspiring, to think of the sanctuary that this city offered as early as the 1600's.
Wow! We spent HOURS here. We started in the Kid's section since we had our 10 & 14 year olds with us, but it was so interesting for the adults in the group, too!! It really gave a good glimpse of life in the Netherlands during the time of the occupation. Our only regret was since we spent so much...
This is the second visit to Artis and it’s incredible! A highlight of our Amsterdam trip, again.
The oldest zoo in Europe — it’s so charming. We went in the late afternoon (3pm) and the animals were very active. 2--2.5 hours seems about the right amount of time. Fun for all ages, just do it.
While we looking over the menu, the owner was bringing out a sampler tray to another table. We looked interested so he paused and let us look it over. So we also had the every-on-the-menu sampler sampler tray....yummmm.
Nicely decorated & clean.
Watch out for bathroom doors. Men's and Women's are opposite from each other and the doors open out...

"Wonderful staff and equally wonderful food"
reviewed March 10, 2020 by ellel601
Wonderful staff and atmosphere, food is delicious and locally sourced and Instagram worthy! It is a must go place, not cheap but that’s because they take pride in the food they produce and source it locally. I had Eggs Florentine and an oat milk flat white, best meal I had whilst in Amsterdam, you won’t be disappointed!

"Elkaar at home!"

During this time of confinement, we decided to support this excellent restaurant by ordering online their menu of the week. The three courses were all delicious! Special mention for the 24hr cooked porc belly!
The meal was packed in nice paper boxes and the instructions on how to heat up the main course were explained in the menu. You can...
We stayed here for my boyfriend’s birthday weekend and absolutely loved Luxury suites! From the complimentary balloons decoration to the complimentary mini bar snacks and drink on arrival, to the complimentary late check out, this hotel went above and beyond. We were upgraded free of charge as the royal penthouse suite with a canal view was available, and it was...
Very nice place to stay. The common areas are beautiful and well designed and staff is very friendly and helpful. Especially the roof top terrace is worth a stay. The rooms are exactly as featured on the photos and good quality for value.
"Booked for May 2020-could not go due to Corona-very nice management"
reviewed 3 weeks ago by JessieMuc
We were booked to go to Amsterdam and stay at the Wittenberg for 7 nights. As travel is not recommended the management was so nice and let is rebook to 2021. Quick response, very nice collaboration, looking forward to our stay in 2021!
Vaule for your money. Everything about the hotel oozes class and with attentive and friendly staff.
The hotel bar was nice and had a pool table. I tend to use the 'Pint of Beer' metric when frequenting bars and at €8 a pint it was quite expenisve.
I haven't actually been able to stay at the Monet Garden Hotel in Amsterdam due to my trip being cancelled because of Covid19. However, the staff have been excellent throughout this difficult time providing a full refund and cancellation.
I will definitely be returning when the coronavirus is all over and look forward to my stay at the Monet Garden...
