The best 17th century focused tour


This tour is meant for giving you an impression of the 17th century highdays of the city. It's a combination of sightseeing and visiting at least one 17th century interior and one art museum with many 17th century masterpieces.

We start touring around the famous canal belt of Amsterdam with it's characteristic combination of wide canals, typical 17th and 18th century canal houses, boathouses and numerous parked bicycles.
If your ability of walking allows we will make a short walk as well to visit Begijnhof-courtyard and Civic Guards Gallery with it's impressive paintings.

We will stop at either The Palace at Damsquare or Rembrandthuis (1 hour) to get to see a classic 17th century interior and either at Rijksmuseum or Hermitage Amsterdam (2 hours) to watch many 17th century masterpieces.

I think without seeing these, your tour of Amsterdam is incomplete!

Itinerary

We will tour around the historical center of Amsterdam for around 2 to 3 hours (dependent on how long you like the break to be)
We pass by many scenic spots in the historic heart of Amsterdam:

- Picturesque canal views
- The Museum Square
- The Seven Bridges
- Amstel River
- Skinny bridge
- WesterChurchTower
- Anne Frankhuis
- Holocaust Memorial
- Rembrandt square
- Nieuwmarkt.

In case your walking abilities allow I will take you out of the minivan and you will experience everything in a different way.

We make stops at either the Palace on DamSquare or Rembrandthuis (1 hour) and either Rijksmuseum or Hermitage Amsterdam (2 hours) to get to see an impressive classic 17th-century interior and to come close-up with many beautiful, impressive and historically interesting 17th century masterpieces
