Amsterdam

Overview

Long celebrated for its canals, clogs and pancakes, this liberal, tulip-loving city is traditional and edgy all at once. On the one hand, you’ve got world-class art galleries and glimpses into the past, and on the other, there’s street food, boutique shopping and an exciting after-dark scene to discover. Amsterdam Airport also puts you in easy reach of the up-and-coming city of Rotterdam.

Canalside charm

The best way to get to know this city is to weave among its network of waterways – by foot, boat or bicycle. Get set for a classic snapshot of tree-lined pavements, cosy cafés and super tall townhouses as you go. After, take a break with a picnic in Vondelpark, the green heart of the city.

When the sun goes down

Amsterdam may be small, but boy is it big on entertainment. The neon-lit alleys of the Red Light District are an interesting experience, but if it’s craft beer and hipster spots you’re after, head to Jordaan. Or swing by Dam Square for a buzzy atmosphere, then take a brewery tour at the Heineken Experience.

Museums and more

Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum top the list for fine art, while Anne Frank’s House is a sobering trip back in time. Leisure-wise, shoppers can bag vintage finds along Nine Streets, foodies will be spoilt for choice at the Foodhallen, and families can make furry friends at Artis Zoo. An increase in tech start-ups also adds to the city’s cutting-edge appeal.
