Amsterdam is the largest Dutch city and the capital of The Netherlands. It is located roughly in the centre of the country, close to the North Sea. The city has a wealth of good contemporary architecture, all possible to visit on our Amsterdam Architectural Walking Tours.

Recent key openings include the renewed Rijksmuseum building and the exuberant Stedelijk Museum renewal and extension. A major new building on the waterfront is the spectacular EYE Dutch Film Museum by Delugan Meissl Associated Architects:

Amsterdam Walking Tours

Amsterdam Architectural Tours can focus on historical buildings, contemporary buildings or a mixture of both. The Amsterdam Architecture Tour is typically an introduction to the city’s newest buildings, but it can be tailored to your group’s interests, for example social housing or retail interiors.

We can provide limited advice for Walking Tours of Amsterdam about types and areas of buildings. Our guides for the Amsterdam Architectural Tours should be able to meet your needs and interests.

We can provide information on programme, geographical areas and building types up to a year ahead of your architectural walking tour. For example a group of architects interested in innovative Dutch housing or office buildings could be provided with tailored information allowing an architectural tour programme to be agreed prior to their visit to The Netherlands.

You can visit DeFlat Kleiburg, Apartment Building, Winner of the Mies van der Rohe 2017 Awards, by Dutch architects NL Architects.

Our guides typically meet visitors at the starting point of their Dutch walking tour, but by request might be able to meet them from the airport or their accommodation.

We can also do combined tours with Rotterdam, the other major city in The Netherlands.
