Enjoy a tranquil stroll through The Begijnhof

 

The Begijnhof is a peaceful inner-city spot that tourists often overlook as they rush from one attraction to the next. 

While most of the older homes are currently occupied, small lanes and paths still allow for public access. So don’t be afraid to roam freely, even though they may be occupied. The courtyards are surrounded by the oldest homes in Amsterdam, including the only wooden house remaining from the 14th century. You will be rewarded with beautiful views of green lawns.

The original site was occupied by a community of pious Catholic women (begijnen). Today, the small chapel in the area is open for worship, and the last of these women were buried here in 1971.

 

Jewish Historical Museum

 

Four redundant synagogues house the Jewish Historical Museum (Joods Hetorisch Museum). One of these synagogues is the Grote Synagogue. It dates back to 1670. An extensive collection of religious artifacts such as silver Torah containers and Torah robes, decorated Torah headdresses, hangings, and ceremonial canopies are highlights. The white marble Holy Shrine is a particular highlight.

There is also an extensive library at the museum and a kosher eatery in the Obbene Sjoel. Visit their website for details on the museum’s concert program, including candlelight performances by internationally acclaimed artists.

 

Go Shopping in Kalverstraat and Vlooienmarkt

 

Every vacation has a time when you need a little shopping therapy. There are many places in Amsterdam where you can shop for luxury goods, local crafts, or souvenirs. The Kalverstraat is the most well-known and busiest, with its many boutiques, galleries and perfumeries, cafes, and restaurants. Although the crowd can sometimes be intimidating, especially on Saturdays, it is a memorable outing.

 

You can have a different shopping experience at the Vlooienmarkt in Amsterdam, held here since 1886. There are many wares, including antiques, food, and clothes.

The Muntplein is the central square of Amsterdam. This square was once the site of a 15th-century sheep market. The Munttoren (Mint Tower) rises above the court. It dates back to 1672, when Amsterdam was home to the mint for two consecutive years during the French occupation of Utrecht.

 

Hermitage Amsterdam

 

Hermitage Amsterdam is another excellent museum location, an outpost of Saint Petersburg.

The museum was opened in 2009 in the Amstelhof, a magnificent old building from the 1680s. It features permanent exhibits focusing on Russia’s long-standing relations with the Netherlands and one that traces the building’s history. A lovely courtyard garden is worth visiting as well as a great restaurant.
