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.

Not only the Amsterdam food halls, but you also find a cinema here. So if you’re looking for the perfect night out, have a drink (or two) at the Food Halls (try different cocktails or specialty beers!) and go for an art house film next door afterwards.
