There is always something going on in Amsterdam. Pop into the shops in De Negen Straatjes, visit the impressive Anne Frank House, rent skates in the Vondelpark, visit trendy boutiques in De Pijp, drink a beer at Café Hoppe or stroll along the Amstel.
Amsterdam also offers many possibilities for entertainment. Film, theatre, music, dance and comedy: it’s all there. Particularly during the summer, Amsterdam is teeming with festivals, such as the Canal Parade and the cultural Uitmarkt. For an extensive overview of what is going on, visit the Amsterdams Uitburo at the corner of the Leidseplein/Marnixstraat (a ten-minute walk from the Nova Hotel). In addition to obtaining cultural information, you can also buy concert tickets, sometimes (last minute) at half price.
Where to start and what to do? The staff of the Nova Hotel would be pleased to tell you about their favourite activities. You could also take a look at www.iamsterdam.com or www.atcb.nl for a complete overview of the city’s places of interest.
In a sequence of 80 galleries, 8,000 objects tell the story of 800 years of Dutch art and history.
