  • The Scheepvaarthuis is in the northeastern part of the Amsterdam city centre. From the central station it is walking in less than three minutes here. The powerful corner building built in 1916 in the style of Amsterdam brick Expressionism and served as the seat for several shipping companies. Today here is a renowned luxury hotel. The environment is dominated by the huge and dark-looking building. From a distance, it is solid, but not particularly attractive. When we got close before the numerous figures and ornaments in the facade only we noticed. These are very interesting and diverse. Conclusion: Only a close look is attractive the building.

  • Scheepvaarthuis is close to Amsterdam Central station. We viewed from ship, which took the jaunt. Scheepvaarthuis is one of the attractions of Amsterdam and the guide tells about him. Of course, this is not a House 16 century typical Dutch architecture. The building is in art deco style, but he has more than 100 years. Interestingly enough. Now there is a five-star hotel. My first impression was from the terraces, facing the channel really wanted to sit with a cup of coffee.

  • A good place to hide from the rain, this is a decent maritime museum. Not the best, but enjoyable. In particular seeing the monarchs craft (in its own building out back) and playing with the houseboat (figuring out a furniture layout that is livable without capsize is really a challenge) were both highlights.
  • Shipping museum great place to enjoy history of Amsterdam. Also great for kids.
  • Former Shipping Hall of Amsterdam, now 5 star hotel Grand hotel Amrath. You can visit the inside as non-hotel guest in the restaurant or with a tour, which are provided by Amsterdam School Museum the ship.
