Only came here to look at the architecture which is outstanding. Plenty to see and do around this location so it's a must see. There's another Theater/Opra house but not as historical or charming in architecture. We were here in November and all the surrounding...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
