City Trip Amsterdam

A city trip to Amsterdam has something for everyone. Whether you're exploring the city by bike or visiting a museum, Amsterdam has more to offer than just bikes, tulips and clogs.

Made for romantics, globetrotters and dreamers. A tolerant, cosmopolitan and uncomplicated city.

Capital of the canals

Did you know that the Dutch capital has more canals than Venice? The city centre is surrounded by a belt of canals, which testifies to unparalleled architecture from the Golden Age. It's not just the impressive architecture and canals that make a visit to Amsterdam a "to do". There are many more attractions not to be missed on a city break to Amsterdam. It is not without reason that Amsterdam is one of the most popular and most visited cities in Europe.

Nightlife in Amsterdam

Another reason for a trip to Amsterdam is certainly the varied night scene, because in Amsterdam the night can easily be turned into day! Strolling through the red light district, numerous festivals, concerts and shows or simply visiting one of the countless coffee shops - nobody will be bored.

Amsterdam on foot or by bike

However, the day can be just as varied as the night. As the metropolis is very flat, it can be explored wonderfully on foot and those who like it a little faster simply rent a bike and go on a tour on two wheels.

Don't forget that the bikes don't have brakes on the handlebars - you brake when you pedal back. If you want to have it very comfortable, it's best to sit in one of the various trams and take a somewhat different city tour. Amsterdam boasts numerous markets. The city is a paradise for junk, flower, book and clothing markets, such as the Nordenmarkt, which is ideal for bargain hunters. Or the Albert-Cuyp market, the largest and most visited market in Amsterdam, known for fresh food, fine herbs, spices and many other specialities.

Shopping and Art

In general, shopping in Amsterdam is excellent. You will find everything your heart desires and you will definitely not go home without full shopping bags. You will also find what you are looking for at Damstraat and Kalverstraat. Don't forget to visit the interesting museums and the royal palace in the city centre.
