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.

This former circus theater is the best place to visit a play or musical in Amsterdam. If you get a chance and visit something you can understand, go here. The building is magnificent.

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
