B&B houseboat Ms. Luctor


           

Westerdok


With it's rich Dutch maritime history, (For more details, click here.) in the canal district, it is a quiet place in the centre of Amsterdam, very close to Central Station, with great restaurants, cafe's and shops around the corner. The "Jordaan", as well as the "Prinseneiland" are famous for their historic houses and canals and great views. (On our link page many sugestions.) Anne Frank house is close by, just as the famous Noordermarkt.
Recently opened REMeiland restaurant, a great place on a magnificent location close by. You will definitly enjoy the Haarlemmerdijk, a pleasant combination of all kinds of restaurants and trendy and not-trendy shops. And from central station all of our fantastic musea, the Rijksmuseum ,
van Gogh museum , Rembrand house, and Stedelijk museum are easy to reach.
For music lovers the range is wide, from het Concertgebouw (classical), till Paradiso (pop and rock), or Muziekgebouw aan het IJ (modern and jazz). The stand up comedians from the comedy train have very funny shows in english.
Or look at the city from another angle: the heineken experience! The list is endless, and if you get tired of strolling around, take our canoe or rent an electric boat...
