The Dutch are known for their cool demeanor…

If you want to see that facade easily slip, however, simply trash their beloved AFC Ajax, the city’s football club.  The team is the most successful in the country and one of the finest in the world–so much so that no detail was spared in the construction of their Amsterdam Arena, a glass-wrapped stadium with a retractable roof, located at ArenA Boulevard in the Zuidoost District.  You don’t need to be sports fan to appreciate the building which can best be enjoyed at night when it lights up the surrounding neighborhood.
