Experience Amsterdam

In northwestern Europe, Amsterdam is known for its tulip fields, canals and windmills, cycling, the Van Gogh Museum and the house where Jewish diarist Anne Frank hid during WWII, and works from Rembrandt and Vermeer at the Rijiksmuseum. The Rijiksmuseum, a Dutch national museum dedicated to arts and history, is in the Amsterdam South borough, close to the Van Gogh Museum, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, and the Concertgebouw.

Take a tour—by canal boat, dinner cruisebike, walking, Hop-on Hop-off bus, or helicopter. Just decide how and what you want to see, then connect with the tour that fits your preferences. 

Dam Square is for meeting up, people-watching, and plotting your day while being in the company of the beautiful Royal Palace and in the center of the city.

Walk five minutes from Dam Square to the Amsterdam Museum, an essential for getting inside of Amsterdam’s history, folklore, social patterns, subcultures, and artistic expression.

Amsterdam’s oldest building and oldest parish church, Oude Kerk was founded circa 1213.

Anne Frank House: See where Anne kept her diary and went into hiding.

Insider tip: Buy your ticket for the Anne Frank House early as possible for they sell out very quickly; they are made available on the website two months in advance.

You don’t have to travel outside the city to see the icons that helped the Dutch fight water shortages. There are at least eight windmills inside the city.

Did you know that there are more bicycles than people in Amsterdam? 

Taste Amsterdam

Try Pofertjes (petite fluffy buckwheat pancakes, served with powdered sugar), Appeltaart, or Stroopwafels (chewy waffles), among the delicacies to sample in Amsterdam. Check out Pancakes Amsterdam, The Pancake Bakery, or visit the food stall of Poffertjes Albert Cuyp. You don’t want to miss this Dutch foodie experience. 

Cocotte: Stop in this French-style crêperie in the heart of Amsterdam, offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and coffee.

Toscanini: A local favorite with a 30-year history. Italian menu with a choice of antipasti, primi, secondi, and dolci. Excellent wine list.

De Foodhallen: Take a bite out of the Dutch street food scene where there’s something for everybody. In this former tram depot, you can savor soft-shell crab buns or fish tacos at Le Big Fish; enjoy a bitterbal at De Ballenbar; relish burgers at the Butcher; tuck into hot dogs at Bulls & Dogs; head for Vet View and some Vietnamese street food; droll over the BBQ pork at Rough Kitchen; satisfy your sweet tooth at Le Petit Gateau; or go for Mediterranean fare at Maza. There’s even more choices at De Foodhallen, none of them dull.

Oriental City B.V.: In Amsterdam’s “Wallen” area, Oriental City is a local crowd favorite. Extensive menu, with the dim sum among the best in town.

Proeflokaal Arendsnest: Taste the creativity in the craft beer scene here in Amsterdam at this canal-side beer bar on the Herengracht. Choose from around 50 Dutch beers on tap and 100 bottled beers. 

Thrill Grill: Craving a burger? Diners queue up here for such creations as the classic all-beef Thriller, a salmon or veggie falafel burgers, or the Purist, which is a burger with gravy. Four city locations, with the Gerard Doustraat location receiving the best scores for ambiance.

Try this: The Netherlands is famous for its cheese, so go for a cheese and wine tasting session.
