Rijksmuseum

The largest collection of Dutch art through history is found here on the Museumplein. Opened in 1885, it is Neo-Gothic in style and filled with riches. Nowhere else can you find such a display of the Dutch masters including Rembrandt’s most famous work, Night Watch. Such a vast collection of art takes more than a day to explore. MAP

Oude Kerk

Originally a small wooden church on a bank of the Amstel River in the 1300’s, it grew to be the stately Gothic structure it is today during the 14th century. Over the centuries it was a place for traders to meet and a refuge for the poor. A wonderful pipe organ was built in 1724, but little else has changed. Walking around on the gravestones of the rich and famous and royals from centuries past is an eerie feeling, especially when you recognize someone you’ve heard of! See Map

Nieuwe Kerk

The Nieuwe Kerk is located on the Dam Square next to the Royal Palace. It’s famous for it’s Great Organ (1645), gilded cherubs, stained glass and incredible carved wooden pulpit. Construction began in the 14th century, and was completed in the 1650’s. Often used for special exhibits, small fee charged.

Koninklijk Paleis (Royal Palace)


Originally built as the City Hall, Louis Napoleon turned it into the Royal Palace during his short-lived reign over the Netherlands. Today it is only rarely used by the Dutch royal family for ceremonial occasions. It was last used during the wedding of Prince Willem and Maxima. The sculptures and artwork inside are worth seeing.

You may have heard about this famous section of Amsterdam, and quite likely everything you’ve heard is true! Check it out for yourself, it’s unlike any place else.

Amsterdam’s famous Red Light District covers a large area in the oldest part of the city. It has been servicing the personal needs and desires of locals and visitors for five centuries. There is a certain charm to the area thanks to the old buildings leaning at odd angles overlooking tree-enshrouded canals, while inviting pubs, cafes and coffeeshops tempt you to linger longer. Music of every genre can be heard along the streets from a dozen or more venues late at night. Recently redone streets, revamped façades, new, classier resturants are now transforming what was once dark and dingy into one of the most attractive parts of town! Now there are more reasons then ever to visit the Red Light district, and experience this very special place. 

The narrow alleyways that reflect the inviting red glow of the large picture windows where an endless stream of horny men oogle nearly naked female flesh is of course the main attraction. The women behind the windows run the gamut from young and beautiful to grandmotherly and almost revolting. There’s enough diversity here including Asian, Black, Latin and of course European women to satisfy any fantasy. So why not Get Laid?!
