It's location is excellent right next to canal. During our stay in Amsterdam one day we visited the venue for a show but unfortunately it was full. I think it was a mistake on our part that we did not book the tickets in advance....More

If you will be in Amsterdam, check out the theater's website to see if there are any interesting performances. Tickets are easily booked online and they are reasonably priced. We had a very nice experience, and got to talk to some of the local patrons.

Although ballet and opera are usually expensive, this venue also offers many concerts that are reasonably priced. The tickets are usually sold well in advance. I recommend buying online before your vacation.

We go to all the ballets, and some operas. Never disappointed. The performances are all of a very high quality, if expensive.

Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that

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
