Rembrandts, Van Goghs, and Bill Violas are all on evocative display in Amsterdam’s three main art museums, all in close proximity: the Rijksmuseum, the Vincent van Gogh Museum, and the Stedelijk Museum of modern art. The sheer quantity of quality on display in the museums located around Museumplein offers a remarkably complete lesson in the history of Western art. Lest you overdose on art, the neighborhood is also home to the magnificent Vondelpark, where you can neutralize your art-soaked eyes with the restful greens of grasses and trees. There is high-class shopping along the country's most famous fashion strip, P. C. Hooftstraat, and antiques shops along Nieuwe Spiegelstraat. The city's premier concert hall, the Concertgebouw, is here too , where there are often free concerts on Wednesday afternoon.
