I Amsterdam

Make the most of your visit to Jumping Amsterdam! Take your time to explore the Dutch capital.

Amsterdam is a very accessible and a compact city with an excellent public transport system. Amsterdam is the ideal place for an informal visit with colleague veterinarians and bring your partner. What about arranging to meet up in one of the many museums that are often located within walking distance of the city centre. Or in one of the 25 beautiful old courtyards, the countless pavement cafés or one of the 55 theatres.

Amsterdam has a great reputation when it comes to dining and a good night out. Once in town, Amsterdam’s charming, compact centre is easy to navigate on foot or by public transport. Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it here.

Choose from internationally renowned museums and sights, explore the markets, quirky boutiques and department stores—and unwind with a visit to one of the many parks or just strole along the famous canals: everything is possible. The oldest area of the town is known as de Wallen (the quays). It lies to the east of Damrak and contains the city’s famous red light district. To the south of de Wallen is the old Jewish quarter of Waterlooplein.

The 17th century canals of Amsterdam, known as the Grachtengordel, embraces the heart of the city where houses have interesting gables. Beyond the Grachtengordel are the former working class areas of Jordaan and de Pijp. The Museumplein with the city’s major museums, the Vondelpark, a 19th century park named after the Dutch writer Joost van den Vondel, and the Plantage neighbourhood, with the zoo, are also located outside the Grachtengordel.

After a busy conference day at the Veterinary Sport Horse Congress 2019, you deserve a rest and relax.
