Hg2 : The Hedonist

A Hedonist’s guide to…

Amsterdam

Blue Boat Company
A long running company that cares about the environment as well, there is very little you can fault about these guys.
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.
Cinema Pathé Tuschinski
An impressive old art-deco theatre that still functions in its original capacity as a cinema.
Café Brandon
Cosy, retro brown café with the added treat (for some) that it often ignores the rules for indoors smoking.
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.
Amsterdam 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.
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.
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.
Barney’s Uptown
Something of a smoker's joint, so don't be surprised if someone blazes up next to you, but also has surprisingly good food and drinks on offer.
Gollem
Go on a hops-flavoured taste adventure at Gollem, which is stocked with hundreds of different ales. For people who really appreciate beers.
De Engelbewaarder
This a delightful old gem of a brown café, with an air of literary charm. A chance to get away from the bustle of the more touristy spots.
‘t Hotel
Set on one of the prettiest canals in Amsterdam, 't Hotel is the very epitome of comfort and cosiness.
