A Hedonist’s guide to…

Amsterdam

Stedelijk Museum
The historic Stedelijk Museum offers up an impressive collection of contemporary and modern art and design in Amsterdam’s Museumplein (Museum Square).
De Hallen
Home to indoor markets, eateries and bicycle shops, Amsterdam’s recently refurbished tram depot, De Hallen, is now one of the city’s hippest cultural hubs.
Vondelpark
Amsterdamse Bos
A vast green space on the outskirts of central Amsterdam. There's a fair few things to do there, and plenty of space to meander around.
Van Gogh Museum
The Van Gogh Museum is wonderful way to gain an appreciation of the art and importance of possibly the most important artist of the 19th Century...
Sarphatipark
Probably the prettiest park in the city, Sarphatipark is also one of the few parks that doesn't allow dogs, so leave Rover at home.
Amstelpark
A wonderful park for families with younger kids, with mini golf, pony rides and a miniature train.
Rijksmuseum
One of Amsterdam's most famous museums, this is an art museum with many high points, from the Rembrandt collection, to Hals' The Jolly Drinker.
Oosterpark
A less crowded park than the more popular choices, Oosterpark has its share of monuments and green space.
Westerpark
Beatrixpark
Perfect for those sunny days out when all you want to do is lounge around and appreciate the surrounds, Beatrixpark is tranquil and relaxing.
Cinema Pathé Tuschinski
An impressive old art-deco theatre that still functions in its original capacity as a cinema.
Royal Palace
This grand, imposing home of the royals looms over the hustle and bustle of the Dam Square. It'll come as no surprises that the interiors are splendid.
Historisch Museum
A fantastic museum in a city of museums, this one tells the story of Amsterdam from its humble origins in the 1200s to the present day.
Tropenmuseum
A well-respected anthropolocial museum set in the beautiful Oosterpark. Good reason to take a break from the centre of Amsterdam.
Rembrandthuis
The former residence of the artist Rembrandt, restored to what it might have looked like when the great man lived there, including many of his and his contemporaries sketches.
Het Muziektheater
Home to both the national opera and ballet, this is the centre of high culture in Amsterdam and the country.
Hermitage Amsterdam
Linked with St. Petersburg's State Hermitage Museum, this place has an incredible collection of Russian art and works.
Het Concertgebouw
A concert hall with a century and a bit of experience and excellent acoustics. Home of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
Foam Fotografiemuseum
A gallery of photographic images, where the only linking theme seems to be artistic excellence. Let yourself be captured in frozen moments.
Filmmuseum
Everything and anything to do with film, with screenings, an immense library, a collection of film scores and posters, and best of all, a very nice café.
De Nieuwe Kerk
The New Church hosts not only national ceremonies but also offers a series of exhibitions on topics varying from art to anthropology.
Anne Frank Huis
The home of the famous diarist, this museum is a moving and poignant experience. Can get very busy, so plan your trip carefully.
