Rembrandt’s Final Years

This walking tour goes through the newer part of 17th century Amsterdam, the western side of the Canal Ring area and the Jordaan, It is the area where Rembrandt lived and worked the final years of his life.

The route passes houses of friends, people he knew and tells the story of the house where he lived and worked the last 10 years of his life. We go deeper into the matter Rembrandt.

In an original way, this walking tour describes Rembrandt the artist, his art and the society of his days. The walk gives you a picture of the social landscape of the last ten years of his life, or, as Joost van den Vondel, a famous Dutch poet, writer and playwright and contemporary of Rembrandt wrote:

‘The world is a stage play, each is given his role and gets his share.’

You will get a clear picture of the reality of this saying for Rembrandt and his painting art during this walk.
