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 oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
Very cool exploration of the microscopic world. This is a truly unique museum. Learn about bacteria and viruses. Covers everything from diseases to soil to fermentation (i.e. beer), with interactive exhibits. The olfactory (smell) display is quite interesting. I highly recommend if you are in to the microscopic world and looking through microscopes.
They offer candlelight concerts (once a month?) and they are reasonably priced and it's a gorgeous way to experience the synagogue. What an extraordinary space and very inspiring, to think of the sanctuary that this city offered as early as the 1600's.
Wow! We spent HOURS here. We started in the Kid's section since we had our 10 & 14 year olds with us, but it was so interesting for the adults in the group, too!! It really gave a good glimpse of life in the Netherlands during the time of the occupation. Our only regret was since we spent so much...

At the height of Rembrandts fame he lived and worked out of this house, meticulously recreated you are privy to his personal and work life. A fellow in his studio was mixing paints from exotic locations, (bugs that feed on cactus from Mexico) ground into pigment well before “tube paints”. Original etchings, and audio tour of each room, brief and...
This was my favourite zoo I've ever visited! My partner isn't a fan of seeing animals in cages but here they have an amazing layout so a lot of them are free to roam and have so much space. It makes it a whole new experience and we loved every minute of it. So glad we travelled a little out...
Wonderful staff and atmosphere, food is delicious and locally sourced and Instagram worthy! It is a must go place, not cheap but that’s because they take pride in the food they produce and source it locally. I had Eggs Florentine and an oat milk flat white, best meal I had whilst in Amsterdam, you won’t be disappointed!

Off the tourist path. Which is good. Small cozy place with mainly local guests.
Try their set menu or choose a la carte (as we did).
Everything is simply perfect - from the cooking to the presentation.
Nice and friendly personnel too.
This restaurant is one of these places you have in mind, when you want a warm, traditional dinner...
We stayed here for my boyfriend’s birthday weekend and absolutely loved Luxury suites! From the complimentary balloons decoration to the complimentary mini bar snacks and drink on arrival, to the complimentary late check out, this hotel went above and beyond. We were upgraded free of charge as the royal penthouse suite with a canal view was available, and it was...
OK we are what some would call seasoned travelers , been abroad dozens of times , this hotel was something " different " the check in was different for old folks like us , but with a little help from the great staff we were in and comfortable , the room was clean and well appointed , the sliding staircase...
Wonderful place that felt like I was in my own home, but with the service of a high luxury hotel.
Everything was a fairly easy bike ride away.
Check in was awesome and I was given a lot of great places to take my work clients for dinner.
Vaule for your money. Everything about the hotel oozes class and with attentive and friendly staff.
The hotel bar was nice and had a pool table. I tend to use the 'Pint of Beer' metric when frequenting bars and at €8 a pint it was quite expenisve.
I haven't actually been able to stay at the Monet Garden Hotel in Amsterdam due to my trip being cancelled because of Covid19. However, the staff have been excellent throughout this difficult time providing a full refund and cancellation.
I will definitely be returning when the coronavirus is all over and look forward to my stay at the Monet Garden...
