We like a niche museum and were delighted to see that Amsterdam has so many. M, being a former member of his school chess team, was keen to visit the Chess Museum. Well, Max Euweplein was easy enough to find, but we did 2.5 circuits before we found the entrance to the museum, which is tucked away on the first... More

This square was built on the ground of formerly city jail that was (in WW II) used by the Nazi for politic prisoner. For many people this was the first place to begin the journey to the concentration camp. It is now a place to hang out. You can find Hard Rock cafe, some other cafes, restaurants, Holland Casino, offices... More

This is the museum of both chess and Max Euwe's career. Netherlands payed tribute to their only World Chess Champion. An exhibition, pictures, items from the world of chess, library with more than 10,000 chess books. Amaying how Dutchmen are stil thankful to Max Euwe. I always connect this Center with street chess at Max Euweplein, under contemplative eyes of... More
