A question I get a lot but is probably the hardest one to answer. Most people visit Amsterdam just for a few days. Totally understandable but also a bit pity, because you’ll be missing out on the most amazing things.
But still I will try to make a few suggestions to get you on the way. Of Course there are the more touristic locations like the Rijksmuseum, van Gogh museum and the Anne Frankhouse. And don’t get me wrong. They are great. But besides those amazing places, there are also a few places which I can recommend which are not so touristy.
Let me start off with 3 amazing lesser known museums.
- Moco museum, a modern art museum with a big wow factor. The most amazing Banksy and Banksy-like art will be on display.
- Museum van Loon, A hidden museum on the Keizersgracht (Emperors canal) they really show you the wealth that Asterdam used to live in during the 17th century. And in the garden they have the most beautiful carriage which you can observe a fall in love with.
- Jewish National Museum. I know that it is very hard to get tickets for the Anne Frank museum. But there is a good alternative. Because Amsterdam has a large jewish history, we have rich history all on display in the Jewish National Historic Museum. And you will see more than only the Anne Frank story.
