The 6 best hotels near the Rijksmuseum
You'll need to spend at least half a day at The Rijksmuseum to take in just the high points of one of the the world's great treasuries of art. You'll find some of the best hotels near the Rijksmuseum in the Museumkwartier, within a few steps of its doors, and only a few blocks away in Vondelbuurt and in Duivelseilend.
Book a guided tour to avoid waiting in line, or be there before 9am to be at the head of the queue when the museum opens, then make a beeline for Rembrandt's The Night Watch, the best known work in the Rijksmuseum's huge collection. After that, admire the works of other old masters like Vermeer and Frans Hals in the Gallery of Honour. Then, if time allows, you can explore the museum's 80 galleries with their collections of art spanning more than 400 years.
