Discover Amsterdam

From its earliest days, Amsterdam has been a bustling hub of commerce that welcomed other cultures with open arms. Learn more about this lovely canal-side city, including the rich history and development of its tolerant society. Each area of Amsterdam has its own character and charm, and a unique variety of shops, restaurants, cafes, museums and attractions. Take time to discover the city’s hidden treasures in Amsterdam’s neighbourhoods.

Alongside tulips and windmills, the global image of Amsterdam is one of a city entwined with water. Since its development in the 17th century, Amsterdam’s Canal Ring has grown to be one of the world’s most unique urban landscapes. And it not only remains a historic and beautiful water network through the city, but a stunning backdrop for fantastic cultural and sporting events throughout the year.

Discover Amsterdam, the Netherlands’ capital, known for its artistic heritage, elaborate canal system and narrow houses with gabled facades, legacies of the city’s 17th-century Golden Age. Its Museum District houses the Van Gogh Museum, works by Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijksmuseum, and modern art at the Stedelijk. Cycling is key to the city’s character, and there are numerous bike paths.

Discover Amsterdam

DO: Explore Amsterdam by bike on your hen weekend.

Did you know that 58% of Amsterdam’s residents travel by bike every day? And with views like that, who can blame them? Feast your eyes on the city’s vast network of beautiful canals in the Centrum Canal District and 12,000 picturesque bridges which make some parts of Amsterdam’s leafy, 400 year old streets feel more like a quirkier Venice.

DO: spend a day (or days) on the Amsterdam museum and art gallery trail.

Doing the cultural thing may seem like a chore in some cities, but in Amsterdam, exploring the huge selection of museums and exhibitions is anything but. Where else can you find Anne Frank’s house, the Van Gogh Museum, a sex museum, a metre-wide house, a marijuana museum, a museum dedicated to noses and take a tour of Rembrandt’s house?

The huge green space is a perfect way to end a bike ride with a picnic. You can even see an original Picasso sculpture and wild parakeets flitting through the trees. Grab a coffee at Cafe Vertigo in the Netherlands Film Museum or stake out a place on the grass and watch the eclectic mixture of families, musicians playing drums and guitars, marijuana-smoking students and tourists enjoying the sunshine.
