Explore Arts and Entertainment in Amsterdam


Amsterdam is a premier art city, bursting at the seams with world-renowned cultural venues and events. Top museums include the Rijksmuseum, the Hermitage Amsterdam, the Van Gogh Museum and the renovated Stedelijk Museum. If you’re looking to immerse in Amsterdam’s art community, don’t miss the city’s acclaimed art festivals, including the Affordable Art Fair, the International Documentary Film Festival and PAN Amsterdam, an art and antiques showcase. You’ll also find exquisite theater and music events, such as the concert hall Concertgebouw, and festivals like Grachtenfestival and the Winterparade.

But Amsterdam offers more than highbrow entertainment. The infamous Red Light District is one place visitors can experience shock-and-awe entertainment. Amsterdam’s nightlife never sleeps and is full of “brown cafés” (Dutch pubs), proeflokalen (tasting houses) and trendy lounge bars.
