Visit the world-famous 17th century capital of Holland. Enjoy the historic buildings, beautiful museums and pleasant ambiance. Go for a boat tour on the canals, stroll through Vondelpark, and go shopping in the inner city. Amsterdam is a unique city!
Amsterdam's canal-woven core is laced by atmospheric narrow lanes. You never know what you'll find: a tiny hidden garden; a boutique selling witty, stylised Dutch-designed homewares and fashion; a flower stall filled with tulips; an old monastery-turned-classical-music-venue; an ultra-niche restaurant. Fringing the centre, post-industrial buildings in up-and-coming neighbourhoods now house creative enterprises, from art galleries to craft breweries and cutting-edge tech start-ups, as well as some of Europe's hottest clubs.
The Van Gogh Museum hangs the world's largest collection. A few blocks away, Vermeers, Rembrandts and other Golden Age treasures fill the glorious Rijksmuseum. And for blockbuster displays, the Hermitage Amsterdam delivers: the outpost of Russia's State Hermitage Museum sifts through its three-million-piece home trove to mount mega exhibitions.
Bike & Boat Travel
Two-wheeling is a way of life here. It's how Amsterdammers commute to work, go to the shop, and meet a date for dinner. Abundant bike-hire shops make it easy to gear up and take a spin. If locals aren't on a bike, they may well be on the water. With its canals, this city reclaimed from the sea offers countless opportunities to drift. Hop aboard a canal boat (preferably an open-air one) or one of the free ferries behind Centraal Station for a wind-in-your-hair ride.
Founded in 1638, originally as a medicinal herb garden, Hortus Botanicus is one of the world’s oldest botanic gardens. This green oasis in the city has 4,000 plant species, such as wild orchids and huge palms, and one of the greenhouses is home to hundreds of tropical butterflies.
Visit a goat farm and enjoy an aromatherapy massage, go bird-watching, or attend an open-air pop concert.
The expansive dune landscape at Zuid-Kennemerland National Park, located between Haarlem and the North Sea, is home to fallow deer, roe deer, squirrels, hedgehogs, rabbits, foxes, Scottish Highland cows, European bison, and a hundred species of birds. The park is 30 minutes away from Amsterdam by train or bus.
World Heritage Site
Amsterdam is not nicknamed the Venice of the North for nothing, with 165 canals running a total length of 47 miles. They can be explored via a sightseeing cruise, canal bike, or rental boat.
