Centuries of creativity
Described by many as a village, Amsterdam packs the cultural punch of a city many times its size. While still retaining a bit of a ‘sex, drugs and rock 'n’ roll' reputation, Amsterdam is now more about being a ‘creative city’ where the high standards set by such Golden Age painters as Rembrandt are maintained. The city has become a global hub for art, design, architecture and advertising, but one where all its attractions are just a short and scenic bike ride away.
A glass house for exhibiting artwork in Amstelpark
Glazen Huis or the Glass House was erected in 1972 as a show house for the work of local graphic artists. This showcase structure is in the middle of a park in Zuideramstel, a suburban district. The exhibits in this see-through building are updated frequently.
Glazen Huis with its art exhibitions is just one of the attractions at Amstelpark. There are playgrounds, miniature golf, and pony rides. Also there is a rose garden, a model plant nursery, and, at the far end of the park is the Rieker windmill. In the summer, guests can tour the park aboard a miniature train.
