Make your choice in Amsterdam:
Amsterdam was in the 17th century a world power in itself, und the unbelievable wealth at that time created a marvelous and large old city center, very well preserved. A walk runs from the medieval centre, pieces of the old city wall, along the famous canals, a piece of China town, the former Jewish district, not to forget a piece of the famous Red Light District.
Rembrandt died 350 years ago this year. In the Rijksmuseum there is a wonderful exhibition 'All Rembrandts'. And we have a Rembrandt Tour, which could be a nice extension.
Along painted or drawn places. Where the Night Watch was painted and where it would hang later. We also see his studio and his first home, and where his loved ones were buried.
The Amsterdam's Eastern Docklands have been developed since the seventies from a harbour site to a highly popular residential area with superb and diverse architecture. The district even became an important tourist stop: architecture tourists and everybody else enjoy the site.
The city's newest residential district is situated on artificial islands in the former harbour mouth. IJburg provides fascinating walks. You can also choose for a bicycle tour from the city centre, which runs via 10 really amazing bridges.
This tour runs through former Jewish districts. Along famous monuments, with one of the most impressive synagogue complexes in the world, but also through a piece of world history. How the Amsterdam Jews, ended up in the 'Jeruzalem of the West’, finally to a large extent were murdered by the Nazis.
Mentioning district Old-South (Oud-Zuid) the top district of Amsterdam is nothing eccentric. Amsterdam is the Mecca of the social housing an the enormous richness of it is especially to be seen in district Old-South and surroundings.
A walk along the Western Islands, Western Docks, Western Gas Factory, Westerpark. Along the top of the Amsterdam School architecture. The world famous Silodam. The Houthavens with container dwellings.
The Jordaan has that picturesque, small scale atmosphere that everybody loves today. Highlights are the many 'hofjes': a collection of small houses, grouped around a court yard.
Old City by bike
In no global city you can bike so safe and easy thanks to the many bicycle lanes. Advantages: you get a quick overview of the entire city. You will hardly miss a highlight. We get off from time to time for a mini-walk or a visit to a building or courtyard.
'Grand Tour' Architecture
Amsterdams architecture in only halve a day. That's possible thanks to our ‘Grand Tour Architecture Amsterdam’ with car oder van. An excursion with mini-walks through new districts.
The South Axis of Amsterdam has a lot to offer. A grandeur, hardly fitting in the Dutch tradition. Top architecture by Dutch and many foreign architects.
The New Bijlmer
The Bijlmermeer, before by many people considered as a ‘nogo area’, is being converted to a top district. For the real ‘Bijlmer believers’ the Bijlmer has always been like that: a park landscape without cars, with comfortable dwellings, splendid views, etc.
