Absolutely most enjoyable performance, highlights entertaining, great team of musician! Very good solo's: gitar, piano, tambourine, violins, etc. Great sketches and beautiful songs. The theater itself is already worth visiting. Great view from the first Floor balcony.

All of this is the Herman van Veen show. A superb comedian, singer, musician, he always provides you with an additional view on life and the ones that you live it with. You go home with happy and positive thoughts. Worth your while!

This is really a nice theater, impressive building with a lot of history. Although there are around 1,700 seats in this theater, the atmosphere is still cosy and very comfortable. For sure a must-see in Amsterdam.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
