The year 2013 is a special one for Amsterdam. This has everything to do with special buildings, sites and museums that are celebrating anniversaries. Each with impressive milestones, such as 225 years, 175 years, 125 years or even 400 years. Among the revelers are the Concertgebouw with its famous Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, 125 years, and the 225-year Felix Meritis. Both buildings are within walking distance of the Amsterdam American Hotel – Hampshire Eden. The Van Gogh Museum, which this year celebrates its 40th anniversary, is also very easy to reach from the hotel by foot or by tram. In short, this is the ideal place to stay if you do not want to miss any of the festivities in the city.
