This bakery is one the of the oldest in town. They have very nice pies, and bread. My absolute faves are the tijgerbolletjes. And the Tuscan tart. Love it.

Lovely bread rolls. Some with cheese, some with seeds, some with both. Much to choose from. Over a couple of days I sampled: a pizza-slice; a croissant with old farmer's cheese; a cheese-roll with pumpkin-seeds; a spelt "boll" with pumpkin seeds. The spelt bolls were...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
