The Rijksmuseum, one of the world’s most famous museums, is filled with over 8,000 masterpieces and therefore a true must-see.

Opposite to the apartmentcomplex is the beautiful Frankendael park, which offers a fun playground for the kids as well. Also, the Oosterpark is real nearby. It is only a 3-minute tram ride or a 15-minute walk (through a shopping street) away.

It’s easily reachable by tram within 15 minutes. ‘The Dappermarkt’ is only 5 minutes away by bus. Here you can score some unique items at one of the 250 market stalls, or have a typical Dutch ‘stroopwafel’ while enjoying a cup of coffee.
Only a 5-minute tram ride away, you’ll find one of Europe’s oldest Zoos ‘ARTIS’. In ARTIS Amsterdam Royal Zoo, nature, culture and heritage come together. Some of the animal enclosures here include signage with translations in English, which makes it ideal to visit the Zoo with kids.

"This apartment was perfect. The residential neighborhood is close to grocery, ICE CREAM, the tram and restaurants. The apartment was well appointed and had a nice table for enjoying breakfast before heading out for the day. Chris, the host, and great at communicating before we got there and very helpful on check-in. Overall a wonderful experience."
