World-famous artwork in Amsterdam
Start your walking route on the remarkable canals and continue your way to Museum square. Amaze yourself in the centre of art, with modern museums and historical museums with classic artworks. Would you like to see the masterworks of the 17th century in real life? Then visit the Rijksmuseum. If you are more into modern art, take a look at the Stedelijk Museum.
Do you want to see more of the square but take a rest too? Order a coffee to go from one of the coffee places. In the midst of the square, you find a pond to take a seat. From here you have the best view of all the museums around the square!
