The perfect starting point
B&B Museumquarter is located in South Amsterdam, the hottest area of Amsterdam with several shops, wellness, museums, architecture, city green, restaurants and cafes, and within walking distance of the metro.
Various museums within walking distance
The name says it all: our B&B is within walking distance of the museum quarter.
You can choose between the Rijksmuseum with its beautiful sculpture garden, the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum or the Moco, to name just a few.
When you have taken in enough art, the Royal Concertgebouw, famous for its amazing acoustics, is definitely worth a visit.
A day out shopping
Posh shops and trendy designer boutiques
Shopaholics can indulge in the P.C. Hooftstraat, the poshest shopping street in the Netherlands, with Dior, Prada and Chanel outlets. The rest of the neighbourhood – Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat and Jacob Obrechtstraat – also makes for good shopping and people watching.
In the other direction, the De Pijp neighbourhood is packed with hip boutiques of young designers. From jewellery, gifts and bags to shoes; it is impossible to leave here empty-handed. After shopping, you can rest your feet in one of the neighbourhood's many hotspots: De Wasserette, Coffee & Coconuts, The Corner Bakery or the Scandinavian Embassy.
Walking in the Vondelpark
Vondelpark is the most popular park in Amsterdam. The best way to explore the park is by hiring a bicycle.
The popular city park is the ideal place for a picnic on the grass or a drink at a pavement café under the trees, at Vondel CS, the Blauwe Theehuis and the Vondeltuin.
In the summer there are free concerts and theatre performances in the open-air theatre.

Places to eat and drink in abundance
Whether you want to go for an early breakfast, have a drink somewhere outside, or have a late supper, it's all possible here. For classic cuisine, you can go to Brasserie Van Baerle, fish restaurant Bark (kitchen open until late) and L’Entrecote et les Dames on Van Baerlestraat. Or you can dine at Taiko and enjoy a cocktail at Tunes, both in the Conservatorium Hotel.
Café Wildschut has a large and sunny outdoor seating area, the ideal place for a beer and snacks. Alternatively, you can savour a salad in the heated outdoor area of Restaurant Fidelio in Beethovenstraat.
If you feel like going out, the bustling Gerard Douplein, where it's all about seeing and being seen, is the place to be. For oysters and bubbles you settle down at the pavement café of fish bar Brut de Mer and for light cuisine you can go to Petit Caron of French chef Alain Caron. Do you rather fancy a juicy burger? The Thrill Grill of TV chef Robert Kranenborg is the place to be. In the summer, there is always a lively atmosphere at the pavement cafés of De Pilsvogel and the hip Bar Mash.
Something to celebrate? Dining with a star is possible at restaurant Sinne on Ceintuurbaan or at Ciel Bleu in the Okura Hotel, both a stone's throw away.
