What to see in Amsterdam
Amsterdam may be famous for windmills and tulips, but there are heaps of other reasons to visit the city. You’ll be swept in historic art and architecture, enjoy their carefree lifestyle. Amsterdam will also charm you with their lovely canals and you’ll see why it’s called “Venice of the North.”
With museums as some of Amsterdam’s top attractions, the city is paradise for culture lovers. You’ll see the way art comes alive at the Van Gogh Museum, and discover Dutch art and history at the Rijksmuseum.
Take a tram and retrace the lives of icons at the Anne Frank House and the Rembrandt House Museum. See exhibitions and concerts in Amsterdam’s oldest church and building, the historic Oude Kerk.
Amsterdam is known for its sinful “red light district,” even if many religions are practiced here. Today, De Wallen’s also a space for talented fashion designers.
Looking for a different kind of beauty? Stop by the world’s only floating flower market at Bloemenmarkt or enjoy an arvo of strolling or a bike ride at Vondelpark.
