Van Gogh Museum

The Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam houses the largest collection of art works by Vincent van Gogh in the world. After trying many jobs, Vincent van Gogh became an artist at the age of 27. He was self-thought, always looking for ways to improve his art. Vincent would probably never have believed how his creative career has changes the history of art forever. To his own sadness, his work wasn’t much appreciated at the time. He just sold one painting during his lifetime, before he tragically passed away at the age of 37. He left all his artworks to his beloved brother Theo. If Vincent could only visit his own museum now...

Eetsalon van Dobben

A typical Dutch snack is the croquette and Van Dobben is probably one of the most famous brands. The original shop was founded in 1945 and still exists. The croquettes were prepared in Kerkstraat. Orders were passed on to the kitchen in Kerkstraat via a bicycle store opposite of the Van Dobben shop, which had a telephone. When ready the croquettes made their way to the shop, and were kept warm with charcoal. The croquettes quickly became well known in Amsterdam.

Eetsalon van Dobben is the perfect place to taste our local Dutch croquette! The shop is just around the corner of the hotel.
