The beautiful city of Amsterdam is world famous for its stunning architecture, beautiful waterways and prolific recent and ancient history. It remains one of the most popular cities in Europe to visit and provides a staggering number of fascinating attractions ensuring its visitors never get bored.
You will find over 60 different museums in the city to visit covering everything from high art to cats, houseboats, gemstones, tattoos, religion, cannabis, torture and even erotic fantasy. There really does seem to be something here for everyone. If the exhibits tire you out you can always enjoy a leisurely cruise on one of the many tour boats that make their way along the 60 kilometres of delightful canals. There are also an impressive 1500 bridges along the way to admire.
Shopping possibilities for delicious food items and unusual gifts are outstanding and it is likely you will be tempted by something special at almost every street corner. The city has a certain energetic vibe that puts it up there with Berlin, London and Paris but has the added benefit of being almost ten times smaller so it is much more manageable to get around. The city is serviced by an excellent tram and bus system and you will notice immediately the incredible number of bicycles in use. By far the majority of journeys are made on two wheels and the city has an estimated 1.5 million bicycles. It is highly recommended to hire bikes during your holiday so you can see the city from a new, higher and slightly faster vantage point. The city is properly designed for bicycles and there are over 400 kilometers of designated bicycle lanes to keep you safe from traffic.
The city is famously popular with groups of visitors who can lose themselves in the many live music venues, nightclubs, bars and coffee shops. The bars within the Red Light District are extremely popular with large groups and the vibe is extremely upbeat whatever night of the week you visit.
The city is also popular with couples since Amsterdam has some of the prettiest and most romantic architecture in Europe. Be sure to explore the fairy-tale like Canal Belt area and the delightful Jordaan district alongside. The city’s entire old centre was added in 2010 to the UNESCO list of locations of historical and cultural importance, thus preserving it for future generations to enjoy.
