These are the sights that you can visit with your Amsterdam pass.
- Van Gogh Museum
- One-hour Canal Cruise
Van Gogh Museum
Vincent van Gogh’s paintings are scattered all over the world, from Paris to New York, but the largest collection is on display at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
Everything from serene landscapes, beautiful still lifes, and revealing self-portraits are on show. You’ll be able to see a version of his iconic Sunflowers; admire a painting close to Van Gogh’s heart, The Potato Eaters; and get up close to one of three depictions of Van Gogh’s own bedroom, Bedroom in Arles.
If you haven’t had enough of Van Gogh, then don’t worry, he makes an appearance at the Rijksmuseum too, and it’s included in your Amsterdam Pass.
He’s not the only Dutch genius on display though. Expect to see art by Rembrandt, four masterpieces by Vermeer (a huge collection considering there are only 34 in total), and a history of the Netherlands told through art, artifacts, and relics of its colonial past.
One-hour Canal Cruise:
If you’ve got an Amsterdam bucket list, a canal cruise should certainly be part of it. The historic canal ring is a central part of the city’s identity, and it’s the perfect place to appreciate the tall townhouses, quaint bridges, and hustle and bustle of cycling locals from. An audio guide comes included with the cruise, so you can learn more about the city while appreciating the view.
