Explore Amsterdam

Amsterdam, Europe's largest intact historical city centre with magnificent 17th and 18th century merchants houses surrounding its world famous canals. Romantic old wooden bridges, narrow streets with delightful little shops, restaurants & cafés and authentic stalls. A one of a kind city noted for its architecture, history of tolerance and humor. There is so much to see and do. Several of the world's most heralded museums and Amsterdam's points of interest are just minutes away.

Shopping in Amsterdam is a journey of discovery: there are several large department and chain stores on the main shopping street Kalverstraat. However the real shopping adventure begins on the city’s narrow, canal-side streets in the historic centre lined with small individual and one-off shops, intimate galleries, family-run stores as well as the stylish Dutch designer boutiques, including most notably Viktor & Rolf. Now and then, everyone needs an editorial point of view when shopping: someone with good taste and the good sense to offer honest expertise. De L'Europe’s concierges can easily arrange a personal shopper. For more information click here.

Notable sites such as Dam Square, the Rembrandthuis, and the Anne Frank House are just a short walk from the hotel. Art lovers will appreciate the hotel's central location because the world-famous Rijksmuseum National Gallery, Van Gogh Museum and the Hermitage Museum are moments from the hotel. Across the way, we encourage music lovers to indulge in an evening at Concertgebouw with its global roster of classical stars.
