Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam

The Van Gogh museum is located in the Museum Quarter along with the Rijksmuseum, although fitting both into one day would be a squeeze.  The Van Gogh museum, however, is quite small and can take upto 3 hours to take in.  The museum is split into two main areas, one which is good overview of his whole career and the "Colours of the Night" area which shows more detail and some great works (This is charged as "extra" for some reason, although without this the museum would be quite bare).  The museum hosts a large quantity of Van Gogh´s work, although not all of the masterpieces are there.


Amsterdam VondelPark

For a breath of fresh air after visiting the museum quarter you can take a walk through the Vondelpark nearby. The best time to stroll through is in full spring or summer, when the park is in full bloom and local Amsterdammers fill it with live concerts, theatre and dance performances. The park is quite large (120 acre) so be sure you want a decent walk if you decide to pass through it, although respite can be found in the centre of the park at the Het Blauwe Theehuis coffee-shop, or in the Nederlands Filmmuseumat the Vertigo cafe with its open air terrace.  The Vondelpark was designed by the two architects J.D. and L.P. Zocher in 1865.
