Culture in Amsterdam

Few cities meld history with modern urban flair like Amsterdam. You won’t get far without discovering a masterpiece of art, traditional pub, buzzing market or waterway.

Highlights

1 VAN GOGH MUSEUM

This museum houses the world’s largest collection of the great 19th-century Dutch painter’s works. It is as much a tour through his troubled mind as through his work. There are also paintings by Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec, Monet and Bernard. Book ahead (vangoghmuseum.nl; Museumplein 6; 9am–7pm Sun– Thu, to 10pm Fri, to 9pm Sat, shorter hours Sep–mid -Jul; £15).

2 RIJKSMUSEUM

The Netherlands’ premier art trove splashes Rembrandts, Vermeers and 7,500 other masterpieces across its galleries. The crowds huddle around the Golden Age artworks, so the remaining rooms are free for browsing antique ship models, Dutch Delftware pottery and magic lanterns. Visit after 3pm and pre-book tickets. The gardens are free (rijksmuseum.nl; Museumstraat 1; 9am–5pm; £15).
