The Rijksmuseum is one of the city’s most important art landmarks. It is great in size and displays numerous works of art, like paintings, sculptures, statues, an enormous library and an impressive hall with guns, armor suits, ship miniatures and old time uniforms. Stop by “The Night Watch”, Rembrandt’s famous artwork, a huge and magnificent painting that is guaranteed to captivate you! Admire van Gogh’s portrait and lots of other artworks! Amsterdam’s National Museum is quite big, so you should devote many hours to it in order to have the chance to see the majority of artworks, or relax in its fine and polished café. Outside there is a delightfully decorated garden with flowers and fountains. The wait in line ranges between 20 minutes and 1.5 hours, but there is a way to get inside right away, without having to wait for even a minute!
