With its classic canals and cultural richness, Amsterdam is a jewel bordered by the North Sea.
If you're looking for a chilled-out break, Amsterdam offers a unique relaxed atmosphere. In a city where whirring bicycles rule the streets and flat river boats silently cross the city, most of the museums and landmarks can also be easily reached walking along the sun-dappled canals. Rijksmuseum, Anne Frank’s House and Van Gogh museum top the list of cultural things to do in Amsterdam.
For the beer drinkers the historic brewery and corporate visitor centre “The Heineken Experience museum” is a must go.
Most of Amsterdam windmills have been dismantled but today we can still see 8 of them. They used to fulfil various purposes, from preventing the city from flooding to grinding the seeds for mustard. Tulips are one of the most recognised symbols associated with the city. When Keukenhof Park experiences an explosion of colours during tulip blooming period in April, thousands of visitors gather here to enjoy the extraordinary event. Remember to bring your camera!
