The Night Watch Walk

On this walking tour through the oldest part of Amsterdam you will follow the journey this painting has made. Starting at the place where the Night Watch was made almost 400 years ago, you will walk past the buildings where it was displayed, and you will learn what happened to the people depicted on the painting.

During the walk you will get to know the people Rembrandt painted, their daily lives, where they lived and how wealthy they were. It is a walk amongst the people of Amsterdam now and 400 years ago. The painting is a representation of all the citizens of Amsterdam. It is significant for that time, but also for our time. It is telling about humanity, about you and me.
