“We absolutely loved this swap, for we could not make it to a further away country we still wanted to have a short break during the xmas holidays. The trip was special, for Amsterdam was so quiet, and we fully enjoyed it.”

Where is it?
Something for everyone young and old. There is a so much to do within a short walk, cycle or tram ride. At the end of our street is the house where Rembrandt lived and worked (now a museum), the local fleamarket as well as the National Opera/Ballet. On the other end of our street is the Science Museum (called Nemo) as well as the National Maritime Museum - both great for kids of all ages including older ones! Hermitage Musuem is very close. Plenty and plenty more of cafes, bars, restaurants - nearby with a focal area being the Nieuwmarkt which hosts an organic market on a Saturday. We leave a list of our favourite places for guests. For the kids - the zoo is also close as well as a TunFun - a large indoor playground, laser gaming and bowling. This is the Jewish Cultural Quarter of Amsterdam so if you are interested in Jewish heritage there is the Resistance Museum, Holocaust Museum, Jewish Historical Museum and the Portuguese Synagogue - all fascinating insight to the history of this part of Amsterdam. With the big well known museums such as the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh not far away there are also some of Amsterdam's hidden gems such as "Our Dear Lord in the Attic" very nearby. As the so called "Venice of the North" of course there is water everywhere which means boats and more boats and canals for endless light summer days or darker winter days with magical lights wandering along, stopping off at cafes or bars to enjoy world heritage views or just to people watch. Magic. If you are coming with kids, that need baby sitters for evenings we could probably connect you with some local babysitters.
