Cruise down the historic canals flanked by the city's colourful, quaint canal houses (some housing the best hotels in Amsterdam), wander the cobbled streets of the red light district stopping into wood-panelled bars that have been in business for hundreds of years, shop the design boutiques and vintage stores of the 9 Streets, peruse the rich oil paintings of the Dutch masters at the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, step back in time at the poignant Anne Frank House, and cycle over the city's brick bridges for a true Amsterdam experience.
Food & Drink:
Order a plate of buttery Dutch cheeses and wash them down with a local craft beer, sample the delicious, savoury or sweet crepe-pancake hybrid of the pannekoek, or snack on a herring sandwich with pickles and onions for a traditional taste of Dutch cuisine.
Off the Beaten Track:
Take the free ferry to Amsterdam's up-and-coming Noord district, a former industrial area that's been converted into a sleek, new, waterside neighbourhood full of re-purposed warehouses hosting chic restaurants, art galleries and nightclubs. Here you can also enjoy the giant green Noorderpark where you can take a yoga or dance class, or simply cycle through the park's peaceful paths.
This is a city that truly has something for everyone, starting with our amazing selection of hotels in Amsterdam. Choose your favourite and turn your dream trip into a reality!
