About Gablestone Quest

So much to see, so much to discover.

An Winkler


I fell in love with Amsterdam when I moved here more than 12 years ago. Amsterdam is often referred to as an "open air museum", but it is much more than a museum: it's home to a open-minded and welcoming group of people. Amsterdam: A vibrant city, proudly building on its heritage.

I am searching for quirky little details that bring Amsterdam's history to life and connect modern life with history.

Join me in roaming the city and discovering hidden gems and stories.
