Amsterdam


Famous for its canals and beautiful bridges, Amsterdam is also called the Venice of the North. With almost as many bicycles as inhabitants (747,290), Amsterdam is easy to explore and discover its beauties. Amsterdam offers Golden Aged and modern architecture, art, cozy terraces, Heineken, the Anne Frank House, nightlife, style and luxury.


With Schiphol airport only 20 minutes from the city center and daily arrivals from various major destinations, Amsterdam is one of the most travel friendly cities in the world.


10 fun things to do in and around Amsterdam:

  1. Admire the city from a different angle and do a Diamond champagne cruise on a saloon vessel on the beautiful canals.


  2. Visit the original masterpieces from Van Gogh and Rembrandt at the Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum. After having absorbed the inspiration, you can create your own masterpiece with the help of a professional artist.


  3. Go Dutch and hop on your bike. Cycle along the canals, crossing the skinny bridge, pay a visit to the Vondel Park, Jordaan area and the modernly designed Eastern Islands.


  4. Immerse yourself into the Dutch country life. Go for a competing car rally and find flower fields, windmills and cheese factory along your route. You could even stop for a small game of Farmers Golf.


  5. Threat yourself to a Jenever tasting masterclass at one of the most authentic cafes of the city close to Dam Square.


  6. For shopping visit the Negen straatjes (Nine streets) which connects The Prinsengracht, Keizersgracht and Herengracht. You will find some of the most unique boutiques there, but just the streets are a true beauty itself.


  7. Listen to modern classical music in Het Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ. Go for a drink at their Star Ferry café-restaurant and watch the sunset against the skyline of Amsterdam.


  8. Amsterdam, the city that never sleeps. It is said the best DJ's come from Holland. Step into the nightlife until the break of dawn.


  9. A real must do, is eating a Dutch raw herring, one of the most popular and healthiest snacks among the Dutch. You either love it or hate it!


  10. Visit the Red Light district, one of the oldest and safest parts of the city. Pay a visit to 'Our dear Lord in the attic' a former hidden Catholic church and now a museum.


Unwind and relax, enjoy Amsterdam!
