Amsterdam’s completely renovated, world-famous museum contains a staggering collection of art including Rembrandt’s Night Watch and works by Vermeer and Van Dyck. See these iconic masterpieces first-hand, alongside exquisite antique artefacts, drawings, prints and classic photography which tell the story of Dutch art and history.

Panorama Mesdag

Witness this incredible cylindrical artwork by Hendrik Willem Mesdag, housed in a purpose-built museum in The Hague. This unusual creation captures an impressive panorama of the sea, sand dunes, and a small fishing village. At more than 14 metres high and 120 metres in circumference, this colossal masterwork is not to be missed!


Within this 17th century palace in The Hague lies a world-renowned gallery with over 800 pieces of art. On a guided tour, you’ll see many famous works from the Old Masters, including the eminent Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer. The astonishing collection has earned this building the appropriate nickname ‘the jewellery box’.

St Bavo's Cathedral

This towering Gothic cathedral in Ghent contains some remarkable artwork, the most influential of which is the 15th century painting The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb by the Van Eyck brothers. This visionary work of art depicting the heavenly apotheosis of Man’s salvation is allegedly one of the most often stolen works of art in history.
