Historical and cultural sites

One of the most poignant sites in Amsterdam is the Anne Frank House, located in an old canal house. Here you will get a moving insight into the life of Anne Frank during World War II.

Another place worth visiting is the Van Gogh Museum, which is home to the world's largest collection of Vincent van Gogh's works. The museum houses over 200 paintings, 500 drawings, and 700 letters, offering a comprehensive view of Van Gogh's artistic journey. The museum is located in the Museum Quarter, which also includes other museums like the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum.

Situated in Dam Square, the Royal Palace is a stunning example of Dutch architecture from the 17th century. Originally built as a city hall during the Dutch Golden Age, it now serves as the King's official reception palace. The palace is open to the public when not in use for state functions.
