Book your tickets to the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam online*. With this you can visit the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam without waiting. Everybody should visit the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam in The Netherlands and see its art and its history. We use the departure day of our trip to the Netherlands for a flying visit. We see Dutch masters like Rembrandt and Vermeer. However, we mostly look at their masterpieces from afar. We are not the only ones who want to see them. But we dive into the history of the HOC. We also learn a lot about the Dutch. Best of all: we see one of my favorite portraits of Vincent van Gogh.
During our visit, there is a special exhibition with the works of Rembrandt. Therefore, we start our tour of Holland's painting with a boat tour. It leads us through the canals of Amsterdam in the footsteps of Rembrandt. An actress runs it. She represents Hendrickje Stoffels. With her, Rembrandt began a relationship after the death of his wife. That's how “Hendrickje” tells us about her life with the painter. She tells how she gave birth to his daughter as his lover. We also get an insight into the life of the Rembrandt van Rijns family.
Rembrandt and Vermeer
Equipped with the stories from “Hendrijckje Stoffels” we visit the Rijksmuseum's gallery of honor. We can see Rembrandt van Rijn's night watch only from a distance. The rush of visitors is too great. We prefer to visit the adjoining rooms instead. There we see other works by Rembrandt. Among them is his self-portrait. “Hendrickje” praised Rembrandt's nubble nose on the boat tour. We can now admire this. The masterpieces in the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam include “The woman who reads a letter”. Also “The Milkmaid” by Johannes Vermeer. They all testify to the skills of the 17th century masters from Holland.
Many works by these artists provide an insight into the life of Holland. This includes “The Fête Champêtre” by Dirck Hals. In it, a society celebrates life in the country. "The happy fiddler" by Gerard van Honthorst likes savor his drink. Both his expression and the glass in his hand prove that.
East India company
As a friend of the history of the discovery of the world, I find the exhibitions about the East India Company Hollands in the Rijksmuseum interesting. Shown are pictures and drawings. These present the way of the Dutch on the northern route through the Arctic to the west. They also give an insight into their routes to Southeast Asia. Sailors repel a polar bear with the spear. This comes dangerously close to them. Hendrick Cornelisz Vroom's painting by 1599 shows the return of the second expedition to the East Indies. This provides insights into a time when the earth was not so well known!

We learn more about the trading activities of the Dutch East India Company. In addition, their relationships with the Natives are an issue. As well as their entanglements in the sugar trade of the Caribbean and in the slave trade.
Our time before our departure in the evening is enough for a tour of the artworks of the Renaissance. These are located in the basement of the Rijksmuseum. We also take a look at Vincent van Gogh's self-portrait. In front of it, only a few visitors are gathered. Maybe it's because the painting does not have the dimensions of Rembrandt's Night Watch?
Bibliotheek of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam
