Plan your trip to Amsterdam
Amsterdam has inspired artists and designers for ages. Names like Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Steen, Mondriaan and Berlage come to mind. From the Golden Age to the present day, design has played an important role in the city’s prosperity. During Interaction14, there will be two nights to explore Amsterdam. You may want to extend your stay to take in all the inspiration Amsterdam has to offer.
Amsterdam is a world city that needs no introduction. What makes Amsterdam so popular? Is it the atmosphere? Museums? Canals? Concert halls? The clubs, theatres and the nightlife? Or maybe it’s the freedom that city offers with its “live and let live” mentality? It’s all these things that make Amsterdam such a one-of-a-kind destination.
