Amazing Amsterdam



Amsterdam, Amsterdam

There’s so much to see, and so much to do. It’s no surprise that Amsterdam is the most sung about city in the Netherlands. And when you stroll along the canals of Amsterdam, you’ll probably catch yourself singing softly as well.

The Amsterdam Canals are listed as UNESCO World Heritage and attract tourists from all over the world. Obviously, Amsterdam’s other sights, including the Anne Frank House and several world class museums, contribute as well.

The Red Light District, the Dam (with the adjecent Madame Tussaud’s Museum of Wax) and coffee shops are other popular places to visit, but you’re probably better off avoiding these places. Unless you’re looking for exorbitant prices, loads of tourists and the occasional pickpocket, of course.

In stead, visit the Albert Cuyp market or walk through the Vondel Park. Get entertained in the modern Muziekgebouw aan ‘t IJ (Music building at the IJ), Royal Theatre Carré, or Tuschinski Theatre. You’ve got plenty things to choose from, in Amsterdam.


Make sure to…
  • Visit the re-opened Rijksmuseum
  • Got some time to spare? Then Artis Zoo is the place to go for you.
  • Even more museums: modern art in het Stedelijk
  • Hotel Okura has four restaurants, of which three have a Michelin star
