Our Suggested Itinerary

  1. Day 1

    A trip to Amsterdam wouldn't be complete without a canal cruise, which provides a stunning backdrop to the city’s historical centre.

  2. Day 2

    Start your day with a visit to the exhibitions at the Eye Filmmuseum and discover what cinema equipment and film strips used to look like.

    There, you can take part in a hands-on film workshop, specially tailored to your student’s age group.  Choose between 'making a short film', 'movie makeup', 'animation sensation' and more!

    Afterwards enjoy a guided tour of Amsterdam and take in the sights.

    Later that evening, watch an IMAX film of your choice at one of Amsterdam’s local cinemas.

    Begin the morning with a guided tour of the Pathé Tuschinski Theatre, a restored 1920s movie palace and an important cinematic institution where Dutch film premieres often take place.

    Head on over to pick up some last-minute souvenirs from the quirky design shops in De 9 Straatjes ("The Nine Streets"), the city's most picturesque micro-neighbourhood.

    Enjoy some leisure time in Jordaan, a neighbourhood dotted with independent art galleries and antiques shops.

    In the afternoon, visit the world famous Anne Frank House and take part in an educational workshop.  Your students will gain an insight into the persecution of the Jews throughout the Second World War.
