What’s going on in Amsterdam

| Harbour Area

Hop on ferries crossing the IJ behind central station. Up to a 15 minute boat ride to the former industrial harbor area, now the home for creative companies like MTV. Take the ferry to NDSM and have lunch at the IJ-Kantine at the other end.

| Start in Vondelpark

Join a crowd of inline skaters on the Amsterdam version of the Friday Night Skate. The FNS-route is a different one every week. They combine the busy city-center with more quiet neighborhoods, ultra-smooth asphalt with occasional bumpy cobbles.

| Concertgebouw

Free lunch concerts at the famous Concertgebouw on most Wednesdays at half past noon.

| Just off Kalverstraat

The Begijnhof is a hidden courtyard of cottages just off the very busy Kalverstraat. Originally built in the 14th-century for a group of pious, charitable women (the Beguines). You will find one of the two remaining wooden houses in Amsterdam right here.

| Museum District

The Rijksmuseum is one of the top attractions in Amsterdam, yet many visitors may overlook its gardens: beautifully cared for flowerbeds, fountains and summer houses, as well as a collection of sculptures.

On top of Nemo | Near Central Station

Climb to the top of the Nemo museum to have a great view of the Old Harbour, The Maritime Museum and the city.

| Nieuwmarkt area

For more than 400 years, Amsterdam has been known as the City of Diamonds. In fact, the brilliant cut, which originated in Amsterdam, is also known as the ‘Amsterdam cut’. Join one of the free guided tours held seven days a week at Gassan Diamonds.

| Red light district

On board KLM Business Class passengers receive a miniature Delft Blue house. Now some of theses house appear in real life!

| Westerkerk

The concerts during lunchtime at the Westerkerk are free, however, donations are appreciated. There are organ concerts and small ensembles performing here on varying days of the week.
