Amsterdam Travel Information

Tranquil waterways, tree lined canals and crooked gabled houses. Amsterdam claims to have more visitor attractions within easy walking distance than any other city in the world.

Rembrandtsplein with its racy nightlife, Leidseplein with nightlife as respectable or outrageous as you want it – Amsterdam has something for every visitor and every taste.

You’ll find it is a very easy city to explore. Just follow the system of tourist signposts. But possibly the best way to discover Amsterdam is by canal. You can chose your method of water transport, though it’s perhaps those glass-topped cruising boats which come to mind first when you think of Amsterdam.

If you only have a short time in Amsterdam, you’ll need to choose carefully from the dozens of museums. Do you want to admire the artists work in the Van Gogh museum, or discover what life must have been like for that young diarist in Anne Frank’s House?

Had enough of sightseeing? Then dig out the credit cards and head for the shops. Amsterdam has some 9,000 of them! Many visitors come to the city especially to spend their money in the Netherlands’ best-known shopping street, the Kalverstraat.
