Art and History are yours in an Amsterdam rental car
From art galleries, museums and boat trips to concerts, there is plenty to see and do in world-renowned Amsterdam. Grab a rental car and enjoy this beautiful, interesting and intriguing city – by day or by night.
Anne Frank House
During World War II, Anne Frank hid from Nazi persecution with her family and four other people in hidden rooms at this very location. Built in the 17th century, the history of this house is famously known thanks to Anne Frank’s wartime diary that was published after her death. The Dutch have also turned the Anne Frank House into a full-time museum that welcomes over 1.2 million visitors in a single year. Plus, the house is easy to find and centrally located — only 1.4 miles from downtown Amsterdam in your Thrifty rental car.
Think of it as the mother of all museums. The Rijkamuseum is the largest and most beautiful museum in the Netherlands, with more than one million visitors per year. You’ll recognize famous paintings like Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch” and Vermeer’s “The Milkmaid.” The museum was actually founded in The Hague in the early 1800s, but moved to Amsterdam in 1808. Lucky for you, it’s only two miles from downtown Amsterdam. We recommend you park your Amsterdam rental car and try the art history canal cruise. It’s a great way to see the many sites represented in the Rijksmuseum’s collections.
Van Gogh Museum
Welcome to the world’s largest collection of Van Gogh’s paintings and letters. Housed in a four-story building designed by Gerrit Rietveld, the Van Gogh Museum is one of the most visited tourist attractions in all of Amsterdam. The artwork is viewed chronologically, so you can get an intimate look at Van Gogh’s evolving style. Your Thrifty rental car is the perfect way to get here — it’s only two miles from downtown Amsterdam.
Learn all about the last 500 years of Amsterdam’s history in 80 minutes. You’ll laugh and scream as you encounter live actor shows, gripping storytelling and state of the art special effects — all in a walkthrough experience. Located in the heart of downtown, you can drive over in your Amsterdam rental car or just use public transportation. Pre-ordering your tickets is a must, as shows sell out quickly.
