AMSTERDAM CITY GUIDE: EAT SEE PLAY SHOP

Rijksmuseum

After taking the children to the Rembrandt House a while ago, we thought it would be a good idea to now take them to the Rijksmuseum to see Rembrandt’s most famous painting, the Nachtwacht (Night Watch). The Rijksmuseum is Amsterdam’s Arts, Craft and History museum and houses a large and important collection of paintings from the Dutch Golden Age (think Rembrandt, Vermeer, Frans Hals).
There are some lovely publications for sale in the bookshop that will help you make the visit as interesting for your children as for you. And the doll’s house is seriously amazing, I still remember that from my childhood, and I’m pretty sure it made an equally big impression on my kids. Don’t miss it!

For a country that is renowned for its wonderful cheeses --such as Edam and Gouda, it comes as no surprise that even the selection of cheese available at your local grocery store is great. You really can’t go too far wrong! There are many good cheese ...

Marqt
December 20, 2008
I'm sure I'm telling the food-concious Amsterdam inhabitant nothing new when I say the word 'Marqt'. Because Marqt came and conquered, and we didn't look back! The concept behind Marqt (not a supermarket but a 'fresh market') is fresh food, mostly organic, coming from local farms in the neighbourhood of Amsterdam and of very high ...

Located in the middle of the canal district we loved visiting this small but very interesting canal house. Still owned by the aristocratic Van Loon family you will find some parts of the house closed off for obvious reasons, but the parts which remain open are simply stunning. The house gives you a real insight ...
