Went to the RyX concert and was very positively surprised. We like the seating and the fact that both visibility and sound in the place are fantastic. Will definitely come back.

Carré is Arguable the best theater in the Netherlands, if it is not the best than at least it is the one with the most famous history. If you're in Amsterdam and can get tickets to see anything there than you will not be disappointed...More

Absolutely most enjoyable performance, highlights entertaining, great team of musician! Very good solo's: gitar, piano, tambourine, violins, etc. Great sketches and beautiful songs. The theater itself is already worth visiting. Great view from the first Floor balcony.

All of this is the Herman van Veen show. A superb comedian, singer, musician, he always provides you with an additional view on life and the ones that you live it with. You go home with happy and positive thoughts. Worth your while!

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
