Amsterdam, a wonder of invention built on a reclaimed ground, still brims with the aspiration, religious tolerance, and entrepreneurship that fueled the Netherlands' 17th-century Golden Age, when the country led the globe in commerce, naval power, culture, and economic strength.
This is the city of Rembrandt, Anne Frank, the Red-Light District, Johan Cruyff, and the Dutch East and West India Companies; it's a world full of exciting history, mesmerizing art, and time-tested architecture. Below is the list of finest places one must see in Amsterdam.
Museumplein: More culture may be found in just one plaza in the Museumkwartier than most other cities.
The Museumplein is located in Amsterdam's affluent Oud-Zuid neighborhood, which is known for its opulent homes, upscale stores, and Vondelpark, the city's favorite park.
However, the grassy square and its cluster of world-class institutions must be your primary objective.
The Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum, the Stedelijk Museum, and the Concertgebouw, one of the best places to visit in Amsterdam to see a classical symphony, are all included here.
