Facts about AmsterdamAsk anyone who's travelled Europe to name their favourite city - many will choose Amsterdam. And it’s so easy to see why; the city is breathtakingly beautiful and has a rich history and culture, with some of the finest galleries and museums in the world.
But if museums and galleries aren't what you have in mind when you think about the best city breaks out there, don't worry... Amsterdam is so much more than that. It’s a city full of life and energy, where the canal paths echo with tinkling bicycle bells and the flower markets swarm with locals chatting in their wonderfully expressive, Dutch way. Feast your eyes on as many Rembrandts and Van Goghs as you like - but above all, walk around and absorb the warmth and spirit of this delightful city on the water.
Whether you've got a couple of days or a couple of weeks, you’ll be hard pushed to find a warmer welcome anywhere.
Modern Dutch cuisine may not have the worldwide reputation of French or Italian, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a wonderful experience of high quality dining and enticing flavours. The city is full of great places to eat, the seafood is remarkable, and if international cuisine is your thing, the selection of Asian food in the city is surprising - influenced by former Dutch colonies in Indonesia and the Caribbean.
Amsterdam is also a great city for enjoying a refreshing drink (or two), from the traditional brown bars and fabled coffee shops to one of the many upscale bars and trendy live music venues. And nothing beats a cone of fries and mayo after a night out! Proost!
Shopping in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a bargain-hunter’s paradise with a great variety of shops on offer - from top high street brands, to the city’s many delightful outdoor markets. Most of the main stores are in de Negen Straatjes (or nine streets) just five minutes from Dam Square, where you’ll find over 200 shops housed in stunning 17th century buildings.
If you need tulips, clogs or windmills (who doesn't?), Damrak is the place for souvenirs, or you can find high-end shopping on the beautiful Leidsestraat.
Amsterdam’s open air markets are a must – the biggest is in De Pijp, which stretches for over a kilometre and sells everything from food to housewares and books to bric-a-brac. But if you’re not in that part of town, there are wonderful food, flea and flower markets all over the city, some running Monday-Saturday and others for just one day a week. Pick yourself up some deliciously fresh groceries to prepare from the comfort of your Amsterdam apartment!
Businesses in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is the Netherlands’ main financial and business capital, with many large corporations based here.
Transport in Amsterdam
Amsterdam is a wonderfully compact (and completely flat) city, with charming lanes and cobbled streets that are perfect for exploring from your serviced apartment either on foot or by bike. Cycling is a way of life in the city and you’ll feel right just like a local pedalling along the canals with everyone who calls Amsterdam home. You can easily hire a bike from one of the many shops, or if you prefer you can discover the city by boat – simply hire a small canal cruiser or join one of the canal tours.
If you need to get across town, Amsterdam’s trams, metro and buses are outstanding, and you can use the same pre-paid card or day pass on all of them.
Things to do in Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s famous Rijksmuseum re-opened in 2013 after a ten-year renovation project - the result is an extraordinary journey through Dutch art, sculpture and history and is not to be missed. If you have time for one more museum, go to the Anne Frank House on Prinsengracht, which truly brings her famous WW2 diary to life.
