Sightseeing in Amsterdam

Friday 09 January 2015 by Irina Catana On foot or on bike, there's so much to explore in Amsterdam. Take a look at our sightseeing guide to plan your next visit.

Whilst in the city, be sure to stumble across The Royal Concertgebouw concert hall, home to the world famous Royal Concertgebouw orchestra.

Here you will encounter an acoustic experience you are never likely to forget, with the incomparable acoustics being the hallmark of this fantastic space. With over 700 concerts per year, a night here would be one to remember.

Should orchestral music not be your scene, a trip to Anne Frank House is a visit that you would be mad to miss. This Museum leads you through the familiar story of Anne Frank as she wrote her Second World War diary on her experience hiding from the Nazi’s. However, be sure to reserve your tickets online as you don’t want to waste special Amsterdam time queuing.

Come and see Prinsengracht , one of three major canals which run throughout the city, contributing to it its character and charm. Throughout all seasons, the canal, full with houseboats and barges is a real beauty spot. Time dependant, be sure to rent a boat and float through the heart of the city - a beautiful journey.

When in need of a quick dash about this remarkable city, explore it with a popular bike tour. Although bike rental shops are dotted everywhere, an organised tour is a much better use of your time. Companies such as We Bike Amsterdam lead you along canals and through alleys you may never have experienced alone. The cycling life allows you to view the real Amsterdam, along with the hundreds of locals to whom it is a daily routine.
