University of Amsterdam


Buildings and Monuments

The University of Amsterdam is a milestone in Amsterdam's heritage, in avenues both educational and historical. Since its establishment in 1632, the University of Amsterdam has maintained an open, tolerant and cross-cultural education standard, which continues to be upheld to this day. In 1632, it was known as the Athenaeum Illustre, where students were taught in the fields of trade and philosophy. In the Dutch Golden Age, the University of Amsterdam emerged as an international hub of unadulterated learning. It is very well-connected throughout the entire city, making it possible for anyone to reach it, even from the remotest corners of Amsterdam.
