From its humble beginnings as a fishing village in the late 12th century to its current role as a major hub for business, tourism, high fashion and culture, Amsterdam is one of Europe’s pioneering lifestyle cities.

Sir Albert chose to have his home at De Pijp district because it’s central, vibrant and prestigious. At De Pijp’s heart is the most renowned market in The Netherlands, the Albert Cuypmarkt, a daily feast of fresh produce and local culture. De Pijp is a melting pot of different nationalities, known as the Quartier Latin of Amsterdam. Alive with shops, restaurants and trendy bars.

The famous Museumplein and Royal Concertgebouw are a saunter away from Sir Albert’s doorstep. Or wander over to the designer heaven that is the P.C. Hooftstraat, or the high fashion oasis of the Van Baerlestraat.
