"Respect for food is a respect for life, for who we are and what we do. When you acknowledge as you must, that there is no such thing as perfect food, only the idea of it, then the real purpose of striving toward perfection becomes clear; to make people happy. That's what cooking is all about."
– Thomas Keller (The French Laundry, Per Se, Bouchon)
Substitute "music" for "food" and "cooking" in the statement above, and it's every bit as true. It's no coincidence that there are so many parallels between the worlds of music and cuisine. From the strikingly simple to the highly complex, both are art forms that are essential to the enjoyment of life.
And the Wisseloord Restaurant certainly makes our lives more enjoyable. After all, our world-class studio facility just wouldn't be complete without a relaxing place to enjoy some of the city's most wonderful food and ambience. Whether you're busily working in our studios or just in the neighborhood, you're welcome to join us in the café.
Besides providing a stunning backdrop to the city's historical centre, floating down Amsterdam's canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city's sights and attractions. Whether you're a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat.
Most canal cruises take around an hour, in which you'll explore Amsterdam's UNESCO protected canal ring and discover plenty of interesting facts about the city along the way. As well as the excellent one-hour options, other types of canal cruises available include practical hop-on-hop-off services, romantic candle-lit tours, child-friendly adventures and intimate guided boat tours for smaller groups.
A few of the best-known operators include Stromma, Blue Boat, and Lovers. If you'd like to break up your canal cruise with some sightseeing, then the 'hop-on hop-off' service is an excellent option.
When it comes to nightlife, Amsterdam is world famous for its red light district where you can find divers venues, dance festivals and clubs to suit every taste.
