Full description

Did you know that van Gogh visited 7 churches everyday while in Amsterdam? You can learn this and more interesting facts about Dutch art and its most prolific masters as you explore the city with our passionate Art Expert-Guide. Discover the living legacy of Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn and Vincent van Gogh!

Book a 2-hour art tour of Amsterdam. Your Private Guide will meet you near Schreier Tower, in the neighborhood where young Vincent often hung out while studying for university exams and visiting his Uncle Sam. Throughout the tour you will learn many interesting facts and myths about Amsterdam’s most famous artists, their love lives, dedication to art, interest in religion and the struggle to become successful.

Points of interest include the Trippenhuis museum where Vincent often stopped by to admire art, and the Zuiderkerk, which played an important role in Rembrandt’s life. You will find out why Rembrandt’s Jewish-themed paintings were important to the local Jewish community and why van Gogh was so impressed by them as you pass the Rembrandt’s House Museum in the former Jewish Quarter. You will also cross the blue bridge at which Rembrandt used to sit and paint. The tour will end at Rembrandtplein.

Book a 5-hour art tour of Amsterdam to enhance your experience with a visit to the Rijksmuseum. This art gallery is Amsterdam’s most popular museum so there is usually a long line to get in, so we will save you a lot of time with skip-the-line tickets. Rijksmuseum displays Rembrandt’s most famous masterpiece, ‘The Night Watch,’ as well as one of van Gogh’s self-portraits. It is also a great place to discover other great painters of the Dutch Golden Age, such as Frans Hals, Jan Vermeer or Jan Lievens. Your Expert Guide will help you understand and appreciate Dutch art, its style and subject matters.
