Why Visit Amsterdam, Netherlands

The capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam, is one of the most-visited cities in entire Europe. The reason for its popularity lies in its indescribable atmosphere, beautiful architecture, hundreds of kilometers of romantic canals, and plenty of top-notch museums.

The architecture of Amsterdam can be vaguely divided into the 17th-century buildings in the canal district and the new modern buildings noted for their unusual style around the globe.

When on an Amsterdam trip, take advantage of the chance to visit at least one of the great museums, including the Anne Frank House which is set in the actual place where Anne and her family lived during WWII. Of course, the Riksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museums should also bee on the "musts" list.

To make the most out of your Amsterdam getaway, make sure not to miss the following sights:

  • Dam Square and the Royal Palace
  • Rijksmuseum with the iconic IAmsterdam sign
  • The Van Gogh Museum
  • The Anne Frank House
  • The Rembrandt House Museum

For an unforgettable pastime in during Amsterdam sightseeing, do as the locals do and rent a bicycle in one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in Europe and the world. Another great way to make your trip memorable is by going on a boat ride along the city's many canals and viewing the town from water. Also for a fun evening out, go on a tasting of Heineken beer that is produced here.

If you're not short on time, it is advisable to reserve a day for going to the outskirts of the city to view the historic windmills of Holland.

Moreover, if you're planning a tour to Amsterdam in spring, say in April, you have a great opportunity to see the blooming of the colorful and vast tulip fields!
