Amsterdam, the Netherlands’ capital, is known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, legacies of the city’s 17th-century Golden Age. Its Museum District houses the Van Gogh Museum, works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum, and modern art at the Stedelijk.  From its earliest days, Amsterdam has been a bustling hub of commerce that welcomed other cultures with open arms.

The 5-star NH Collection Amsterdam Grand Hotel Krasnapolsky is on Amsterdam’s main square with views across to the Royal Palace. You’re well-placed for some of the city’s finest shops, with tourist attractions just a short stroll away.
