Attractions near the Banks Mansion
More bags than anyone could want
The Museum of Bags and Purses, located only a three-minute walk from the hotel, is completely devoted to the history of handbags, purses and suitcases. Inside, you can see 4,000 different items, some of which are from as far back as the 16th Century.
The most valuable and interesting items include a German-made 19th-Century leather bag with tortoiseshell cover, a 16th-Century goat’s leather bag from France, a bag that looks like a cupcake and is adorned with crystals, and a letter case with a love poem inside it. Guided tours provide a more informative experience and special events are held throughout the year.
“Rock the night away”
If you feel like your nights in Amsterdam are just rest periods between the busy days, you should check out the Paradiso, a rock venue and culture centre only one kilometre from the hotel. First opened in 1968 in a former church building, Paradiso has since hosted world-famous bands such as The Rolling Stones, Lenny Kravitz, ADELE and The Sex Pistols.
Just stepping inside the Paradiso lets you feel the rock history that consumes the venue from wall to wall. It's a history that’s continually growing, with more acts performing each year. Make sure you check out who’s playing while you’re in town, so you don’t miss out on seeing a piece of rock magic.
