Art and design is the pulse of Amsterdam
Famous Dutch architects, interiors artists and fashion labels makes Amsterdam quirky and innovative. The strong sense of its past, behind the historical facades that fill the city centre, a mix of hip and traditional cafes, and some very special boutique hotels make Amsterdam particularly delightfull. In the city you can walk around as everything it's next door, or it's a short walk or tram hop away. Visit the grand canals of the centre, or the galleries in the west to the Museum Quarter in the south to newly boho De Pijp; formerly a working class quarter built to ease the overpopulated Jordaan in the 19 th century and to house labourers, de Pijp as we Amsterdammers know it today is without doubt a melting pot of cultures and nationalities.
