Not only is Amsterdam the capital of The Netherlands, but it is also a city with a royal lining. During this one-day lifestyle experience you will enjoy all things regal.
Royal Palace of the 17th century You day will start with a visit to the Royal Palace at Dam Square. During your private tour, your guide will explain all about the building that was originally built as a city hall during the 17th century Dutch Golden Age and became a Royal Palace during the reign of Napoleon’s brother in the early 19th century. Nowadays it is the official reception palace of the Dutch Head of State, King Willem-Alexander. Royal Afternoon tea with a view After this unique experience where you were able to follow in the footsteps of royal guests, your private chauffeur will pick you up to bring you to one of Amsterdam’s most famous hotspots for a renowned Royal Afternoon tea. While enjoying a magnificent view overlooking the Amstel river, you are being served a series of culinary delights composed of a selection of exquisite teas accompanied by four homemade courses of savouries and sweets.
Amsterdam seen from the water Before you indulge in a one-of-a-kind dining experience, your royal salon boat will pick you up for an exclusive cruise through the famous canals of Amsterdam. After all, Amsterdam is most beautiful if seen from the water. Exit the boat in the famous museum quarter. In 2014, the prestigious restaurant RIJKS® opened in the Philip’s Wing of the Dutch National Museum (Dutch: Rijksmuseum). Earning its first Michelin Star not even two years after the opening, chef Joris Bijdendijk introduced his Low countries’ cuisine ‘Low Food’, firmly rooted in Dutch produce and the many international flavours that have influenced Dutch cuisine throughout the centuries. Quality, authenticity and excellence characterize the menu.
Concerts and cocktails After dining, your chauffeur will gladly give you the option to enjoy the night with some cocktails in a regal bar where its drinks are in consonance with the historic imperial décor, or – if preferred – return to your hotel. An optional addition to this lifestyle experience is a visit to the Royal Concert Hall (Koninklijk Concertgebouw). With its exceptional acoustics and high-quality programming, The Royal Concertgebouw is truly one of the most exclusive concert halls in the world. It hosts mainly orchestral and operatic performances, but also jazz and world music. Please contact us for more information regarding your schedule.
