  • Museumplein is definitely one of my favorite places in Amsterdam! Every time I'm visiting the museumplein I get surprised all over again especially because always is here something newzit can be an art or culture event, an music festivals and other kind of events, one time I doped by this place and they build here few temporary small size football fileds that where hosting the Homeless World Cup! You never know what you will find here. Museumplein got this amazing view of big green grass fields surrounded by the most famous Amsterdam museums like van gogh museum, rijksmuseum, stedelijk museum and the concertgebouw . highly recommended on a nice sunny day. I love to go to the near Albert heijn buy some snacks and chill in the sun. Definitely a must!
  • Lots of museums and a great lawn to sprawl out on. Great biking acces and lots of places with free wifi
  • Something happens here all year around, it's a nice place to meet up with friends. You can just sit an watch the life in the city go by. If you are in town, the Museumplein is a must visited, all the main museums in Amsterdam is in reach the Stedelijk Museum, Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum.
