Didn't get to see too much of how the diamonds are cut, but did get to see a few work stations and learn a little bit about how diamonds are cut. About five minutes of the work, and then a lot more time for ooohing and ahhing over different diamond samples they let us see. (For most people, that's probably fine,... More

The tour includes a look at the diamond drills and other tools used to create the shapes of the stones. There is a table which we sat around and the hostess brings out stones which vary in cut, clarity and brilliance. Downstairs are the diamonds set into jewellery of many choices. Hard to resist.

We visited this place while on the bus tours and it ended up being quite a curious place with some fun facts to learn if you don't know much about diamonts, but that's it really, if you have your days and time counted, it's expandable.

I was quite excited by the thought of a tour round a diamond factory and made a special effort to go there. Whilst waiting for the tour to start we were offered tea/coffee at the gift shop opposite. We were able to watch diamond cutters at work but there was no explanation as to what they were actually doing. After... More

I wished I paid more attention to Trip Advisor reviews, this is terrible museum. All pieces are fake, cheap reproductions of European royalty crowns and jewels. We also visited the store next door where they cut diamonds in front of the visitors, this was not that interesting either. There is so much to see and do in Amsterdam please visit... More

This places looks luxurious and interesting. You can see the diamonds several cuts, and the fine Amsterdam cut for diamonds. The tour will show you all cuts, types and colors of diamonds.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
