“The lively Amsterdam Red Light District can't be missed, especially if it's your first time in Amsterdam. It's one of the most talked about neighborhoods in the city due to it's housing of the world's oldest profession. While prostitution can be found all across the globe it usually happens behind closed doors but not in Amsterdam. In the Red Light area, known as "De Wallen", to the Dutch, you'll find prostitutes offering their services, from behind a window. Along with that, the area is known for its many live sex-shows, sex-shops, brothels, and strip-clubs. Although the area used to be quiet a notorious and unsafe area, things have changed a lot over the past decades. Besides pick-pockets, the area is fairly safe to visit. Especially during daytime. You can book a guided tour or walk around yourself. An interesting museum is Red Light Secrets. Always take care of pick-pockets, especially at night. Don't put your wallet or phone in your back pocket's and wear your back-pack on the front side of your body. Stay where the people are. Don't walk alone in deserted alley's.”

“Hermitage Amsterdam is a branch museum of the Hermitage Museum of Saint Petersburg, Russia, located on the banks of the Amstel river in Amsterdam. The museum is located in the former Amstelhof, a classicalstyle building from 1681. The dependency displayed small exhibitions in the adjacent Neerlandia Building from 24 February 2004 until the main museum opened on 19 June 2009. out of proportions.   The structure opened in 1682 as a retirement home for elderly women under the name Diaconie Oude Vrouwen Huys (English: Deanery Home for Old Women) on the east bank of the river Amstel. Beginning in 1817, the facility housed both elderly men and women, and was renamed Diaconie Oude Vrouwen- en Mannenhuis (English: Deanery Home for Old Men and Women). The building was first named Amstelhof (English: Amstel Court) in 1953. In the 1990s, operators of the facility determined that it was inadequate to meet the modern needs of its residents and sought to build a new structure elsewhere. They offered the historic structure to the city of Amsterdam, who, in turn, leased it to the museum. The last inhabitants left the Amstelhof in 2007. On 20 June 2009, the museum was opened by former Dutch Queen Beatrix and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. The museum was open to the public the following day. During the more than 300 years that residents were housed in the Amstelhof, several renovations took place on the building interior and wings were added to provide needed space. Thus, little of the original interior remained when work for the museum began. While some areas were restored to their original appearance, many existing walls were removed and spaces reconfigured to accommodate the museum's needs. The total cost of the renovations was €40 million.   Hermitage Amstel 51, 1018 EJ Amsterdam   Open: Daily 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. ”

Flower Shop
“Flowers are not treats, but essentials in Amsterdam. Ever since 1860, this famous flower market has been located at the spot where nurserymen and women, having sailed up the Amstel from their smallholdings, would moor their barges to sell their wares directly to customers. No longer floating (it's now perched on piles), the market has plenty of high-kitsch miniature clogs, fridge magnets and wooden tulips; it's also a good place to buy (real) tulips in season and bulbs year-round.”

Italian Restaurant
“The strength of the Italian cuisine is its purity, simplicity and honesty. In Toscanini we cook according to this tradition. Every day, except on Sundays, the chefs prepare dishes from carefully chosen ingredients. The vegetables come from organic farms or from Italy. The meat is from the organic butcher and fish arrives fresh every day. We bake bread in our own bakery, and the pasta is homemade. We work with various products of Slow Food presidia in Italy. Presidia are projects that enable small producers to keep working on a small-scale and artisanal basis while using the original products and production methods from their region. The wine list features only wines from Italy, most made from native grape varieties. The large, bright space with open kitchen and the informal atmosphere is a main attraction of the restaurant.”
