Four sculptures at the Valerius square and in the Emma park and five in the Vondel park. Why are they there, what are they made of and who made them? What do they say about their location?

Through three lanes, the Keizersgracht, neck gables, cornu pieces, pull-bells and ‘schaamschotjes’ to the Leidsegracht.

The old city

‘Een stille omgang’, through the ‘Gebed zonder end’, a visit to the hotel “The Grand’, ending with a huppelolie liquor in the ‘De Ooievaar’ café.

The story of The Jordaan: saved by a whisker

Duration: 3 hours (walking)
Departure: Amsterdam Museum

A chaos of different architectural styles, atmospheres and lively stories. Perhaps a sing-a-long at Aunty Leen, a coffee at ‘Rooie Nelis’ café and ‘Blonde Greet’ café.

For lovers of architecture

A bike tour to the easterly islands, the wonderously beautiful ‘Python’ bridge and new swimming locations. To the east via Schellingwoude, the Oranjesluizen, the city skyline from a different perspective, ended by a ‘skummkoppe’ beer in ‘Het Sluisje’ café.

Exploring the art of painting in The Rijksmuseum
