Full description

This original art tour of Amsterdam is a must-do for art lovers interested in the Dutch Golden Age and its most prolific master, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. Immerse yourself in art history and hear the story of ‘The Night Watch,’ Rembrandt’s greatest masterpiece. Discover the living legacy of Rembrandt in Amsterdam and visit related attractions with an Expert Guide!

Book this 2-hour walking tour to follow Rembrandt’s trail in the Old Town. Your journey back to the 17th century will begin near the Oude Church, where Rembrandt married Saskia and had most of his children baptized. You will learn more about the artist’s personal life as you explore Dam Square and the narrow streets and canals of the historic center.. Your Private Guide will point your attention to the Zuiderkerk, a 17th century church that also played an important part in Rembrandt’s life.

One of the main highlights of this tour will be a stop outside Rembrandthuis, the Rembrandt House Museum. As you admire the late-medieval facade of the house where the artist lived for 20 years, the guide will help you understand how modest Rembrandt’s life was at that time. You will also explore parts of the Jewish Quarter. Although Rembrandt was not Jewish, he became an important figure in the Jewish world, and his painting ‘The Jewish Bride’ was especially praised by Vincent van Gogh. You will pass by the Portugal Synagogue and head to the public square dedicated to Rembrandt to finally see the artist’s monument.

Choose the 4-hour option to enrich your Rembrandt tour with a visit to the Rijksmuseum. It is the most visited museum in Amsterdam but you will have skip-the-line tickets to avoid the queue. Enjoy live commentary as you explore the massive collection of Dutch, European and Asian art from the 12th to the 20th century. The museum displays Rembrandt’s most famous masterpiece, ‘The Night Watch,’ as well as the ‘Landscape with a Stone Bridge, and many of his self-portraits. See mater’s original works!

Choose the 5-hour to also visit the Rembrandthuis (Rembrandt House Museum). Skip-the-line tickets are included to save you time and effort. The museum shows the artist’s living and working quarters, offering an insight into his daily life and studio practice. The collection includes Rembrandt’s personal items, etchings and 17th century art, and the temporary exhibitions host works of art by Rembrandt, his contemporaries and his (contemporary) followers.
