Tour Basics
  • Starting point: Rembrandtplein. Tram lines 4, 9 and 14 stop right in the square.

  • Duration: About two hours, depending on pace and optional stops to eat, shop or explore museums and attractions.

  • Keep in mind: Weather in Amsterdam changes often and quickly; bring an umbrella, a wind-proof jacket and a willingness to take shelter inside a cozy café if necessary. Comfortable walking shoes are a must on cobblestoned streets and sidewalks.

  • Watch for: Bikers! Before crossing intersections or hopping off the sidewalk for a better vantage point, look for bikers zipping by. Use caution when crossing busy Utrechtsestraat; there aren't marked crosswalks.
