Quick facts about Amsterdam

Established in the 17th century as the capital of the Netherlands, Amsterdam’s name comes from the 12th century, when a dam was built on the Amstel River. Amsterdam is one of the most famous small cities in the world. From the historic canal ring, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011, and numerous museums and historical sights, to plenty of international restaurants and a lively nightlife, Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful and diverse cities in Europe.

It has the rich culture and good transportation system of a big city – but is quiet, and thanks to its extensive canal system, has very little road traffic.

For those who plan staying for longer, it’s always advisable to take a daytrip and see the towns and villages surrounding Amsterdam. They are full of attractions. Nearby is Haarlem with its extensive shopping opportunities. You can explore historic villages like Edam, Marken, and Enkhuizen or admire the tulip fields near Leiden, or explore coastal towns like Zandvoort and Bloemendaal.

Big cities like The Hague, Rotterdam and Utrecht are also not very far and can be reached by train in less than an hour.

Getting Around the City

Discover the world-famous 300 year old historic buildings and pleasant ambiance of the inner city. The Jordaan district boasts narrow streets, sparkling cafés and splendid merchant houses lining the city canals. Go shopping in small boutiques and visit the art galleries in the 9 streets. Alternatively you may opt for indoor shopping at one of the large department stores.

There are many rental companies where you can get a bike and explore the city’s vibrant neighborhoods. Its compact size and flat terrain make it easy to go for a biking trip. Another favorite way of exploring the city is to go for a boat tour on the fascinating Golden Age canals lined by gabled buildings, longwinded parks, cozy traditional cafés, magnificent museums, diverse cuisine and some of Europe’s best nightlife.

Museums are the main tourist attraction in Amsterdam. With more than seventy museums, the city has the world’s highest museum density. It is home to cultural treasures like the Van Gogh Museum, Stedelijk Museum, Anne Frank House, Maritiem and Rijksmuseum with its magnificent exhibit of more than 8000 works, including those of masters Rembrandt, Vermeer and Rubens.

If you are accompanied by children then make sure you don’t miss visiting Micropia and the Science Center NEMO or escaping to Amsterdam’s largest city park; the Vondelpark.

Parking can be along the street or in public garages. Some spaces are reserved for permit holders. If you plan to spend some time in the city then you better use a ‘park and travel’ garage or public transport.

Where and what to eat

Amsterdam is home to several Michelin star restaurants as well as many great brasseries and promenades. Visitors can go for a tour on the Pannenkoekenboot (Pancake Boat), enjoy a vegan snack, or grab a typically Dutch frikandel ‘from the wall’ at Febo.

You can choose from a wide range of dining options in the Dutch capital. From budget bites to fine dining, old favorites to new twists, Amsterdam is packed with a fantastic array of eateries all over the city.

An Extra

For those who are in to a bit of an extra lightheaded puff, the Dutch coffee shops are permitted to sell small amounts of cannabis which is strictly regulated and taxed. They cannot sell to anyone under 18 and must not sell more than 5g to any customer.
