If you are a cinema-lover, architecture lover, art-lover...you MUST visit the Tuschinski Theater in Amsterdam. It was designed in 1921 by the Dutch architect Hijman Louis de Jong in the Art-Deco style for 4 million Guilders (a lot of money in 1921). The 3 Tuschinski...More

We don’t usually see movies on vacation, but this theater was very special. It was built in 1921 by a Jewish man who was murdered in the Holocaust. The main theater is where you want to be to see the original masterpiece stage. Movies shown...More

As lovers of Art Decor, this is just fabulous. It looks stunning from the outside and is equally fantastic inside. It’s dark and atmospheric but very chilled atmosphere. The staff were nice and the ticket and snacks were cheaper than London. Screen 1 was lovely...More

Easily the most ornate movie theater I’ve ever been in, we saw a movie here one night during a stay in Amsterdam. The building is beautiful inside and out, and the seating has been redone - large, cushy, chairs with lots of legroom. The food...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
