Things To Do
With world-famous museums, charming streets brimming with boutiques, cosy cafes and delightful restaurants, there is no shortage of things to do in Amsterdam!
ANNE FRANK HOUSE
Anne Frank hid in this iconic house for more than two years, where she wrote the now world-famous diary. The house stands as a symbol of the strength of the human spirit during oppression, and as a sad reminder of the injustices of war.
Useful Information: The Museum is incredibly popular and it’s advisable to book tickets in advance of your visit. The only way to get tickets is through the website www.annefrank.org. Our staff can always try to get tickets for you during your stay, but tickets are not often released by the museum.
Discover the story of the city through masterpieces and historical relics. From an aerial map dating back the Middle Ages to Breitner’s The Dam, this is your chance to see, read, hear and experience the development of the city.
Located close to The Toren Hotel, Dam Square is one of the main squares in Amsterdam and is also home to the Royal Palace and the New Church. The square is very centrally located, in-between main streets Nieuwendijk and Kalverstraat, and is the perfect starting point for a shopping day in Amsterdam!
Amsterdam is often called the Venice of Europe’s north, thanks to canals that criss-cross the city centre. One of the most scenic ways to explore the city is on the water. During the summer you’ll see locals on their boats, enjoying food, drinks and sunshine. We highly recommend exploring the city by boat during your trip.
Situated on the prestigious Keizersgracht canal, The Toren is a convenient base from which to join a cruise or when looking to stay in a hotel on an Amsterdam canal. Our canalside location means that a selection of our rooms and suites offer one of the best Amsterdam hotel canal views.
No trip to the city is complete without a visit to the museum district. Spend a day reveling in the art of the masters and leave feeling inspired. The main museums of Amsterdam are all located at Museum Square.
Rijksmuseum: The Rijksmuseum is one of the world’s finest art museums, featuring some of the most famous national treasures in Amsterdam, including works by Vermeer, Frans Hals and Rembrandt.
Van Gogh Museum: Housing more than 200 paintings, 500 drawings and 700 letters of Vincent Van Gogh, the Van Gogh museum is one of the most-visited museums in the world. Spend a day discovering the masterpieces of this intriguing genius.
Stedelijk Museum: Take a walk through the last 150 years of modern art in Amsterdam at the Stedelijk Museum. Revel in the iconic works of Karel Appel, Cézanne, Chagall and Marlene Dumas.
In the city centre and only moments away from The Toren Amsterdam Hotel, the Jordaan district exemplifies the eternally peaceful Dutch way of life. Take a stroll through the narrow streets and soak in the beauty of the charming canal houses, while exploring quaint boutiques and delectable restaurants.
RED LIGHT DISTRICT
The Red Light district is possibly the most well-known area of Amsterdam. From brothels to sex shops and even museums, the Amsterdam Red Light District leaves nothing to the imagination! The Rossebuurt, as the locals call the area, is unlike any other place in the city and absolutely one-of-a-kind.
The Nine Streets, or De Negen Straatjes as the locals call the area, is known for its great designer stores, vintage outlets, hip cafes and cosy bars. This is the perfect place to shop outside of the commercial centre. Located between the most beautiful canals in Amsterdam, this neighbourhood is the ideal for experiencing the best of Amsterdam life. The Nine Streets is located just a few minutes from The Toren.
