AMSTERDAM

Overview

Amsterdam is a fantastic cultural source of inspiration for students of all disciplines, particularly budding artists and designers as the city contains a wealth of art, architecture and design. In the Rijks Museum, students will find masterpieces by Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Vermeer and Hals as well as works by the modern European movement, Cobra, among many others. The Rembrandt Museum displays a permanent exhibition of paintings and etchings by Rembrandt and groups will gain tremendous insight by viewing the restored home and studio of one of the art world’s most illustrious figures.

Museums are the main tourist attraction in Amsterdam, however the city has many fascinating buildings, such as the Royal Palace, the gothic-renaissance Oude Kerk and the Amsterdam Arena stadium (home of Ajax Football Club).
