Amsterdam Canal Apartments

Two comfortable canal apartments in the heart of the historic city centre of Amsterdam

Your Amsterdam City Guide

In this Nieuwmarkt neighbourhood guide I introduce you to the things that my friends and I like best in this part (Nieuwmarkt) of the historic centre of Amsterdam. Learn what you can find in the vicinity of your apartment: the lesser know museums, local cafes and restaurants, besides specialty shops.

When you choose one of the restaurants or shops in this guide, you could even run into me…. I visit these places regularly.

I hope you enjoy the suggestions. If you think something is missing or failing your expectations, let me know! I’d happily check them out and add or delete them in the guide for the convenience of future guests.

You will find a full printed version of this city guide in your apartment next to other travel guides that cover the regular highlights.

De Keukenhof Flower exhibit ★★★

The Keukenhof opens late in March until mid May only. The Keukenhof is the place to see spring blossom between March and May. This park is unique, world famous even, and has been one of the most popular destinations in the Netherlands for sixty years now. All-in bus & entrance tickets available at the Tourist Information desk at the Central Station. However we advice to take the train to Leiden and buy your bus and entry ticket in Leiden at the AKO shop and avoid waiting at Schiphol.
