Must Do

If you are planning to visit a few large museums in Amsterdam, such as the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum, we recommend buying a ‘museumkaart’. This museum card pays for itself after visiting just a few large museums and allows you to visit more than 400 museums in The Netherlands. To avoid the fuss, we advise you to go early in the morning.

Don't Go Home Without

Take a trip to the Anne Frank House. Experience the location where the teenager Anne and her family were hiding from prosecution for over two years and read the original diary, where this brave girl wrote down her unbelievable experiences in the sobering atmosphere of a secret annex. You'll literally walk through Dutch history in this old house which contains this impressive story.
