Where to stay in Amsterdam
Accommodation in Amsterdam
The Dutch capital of Holland, located in the western part of the Netherlands close to the North Sea, is one of Europe's biggest tourism destination. As a hub of culture, Amsterdam boasts incredible art galleries, museums, and live music, not to mention incredible nightlife. In the Old Centre, you can visit medieval architecture, a 17th century distillery called the Wynand Fockink, the stunning Esnoga, or Portuguese Synagogue, and the Royal Palace, which was built halfway through the 17th century. If you are a fan of the arts, then don't miss the incredible exhibits at the Rembrandt House, the Van Gogh Museum, and the Rijksmuseum, which holds works by Vermeer, Frans Hals, and Rembrandt. The Anne Frank House is a poignant destination that shouldn't be missed, while the Verzetsmuseum, or Dutch Resistance Museum, is a good addition that explains Dutch culture and bravery during the Second World War. For those eager to experience the nightlife, venture beyond the infamous Red Light District in the Old Centre and head to Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein, both in the Canal Ring, where locals enjoy drinks and dancing at night. During the day, stroll the Canal Ring district and admire the incredible waterways that bring beauty to the city of Amsterdam.
