The Dutch capital is a great choice when it comes to a city break or a vacation!
There can be no denying that Amsterdam is one of Europe’s most underrated and beautiful cities. Just like other European hubs, this large city is easy to fly into. If you are flying into Amsterdam from overseas, there are many discounted flight options available to you and KLM (the national carrier) is a great airline to consider, even for Business Class flights. There are many discounted nonstop options to Amsterdam with All Business Class.
Amsterdam is very flat and the locals like to get around on bicycles. A great way to explore the city is therefore on bike. Why not begin your tour in arty Jordaan? With its narrow streets, art galleries, beautiful buildings, courtyard gardens, antique shops and vibey bars, this is a great way to get a feel of Amsterdam.
The city has no shortage of world-class museums and you cannot leave without having visited the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art. Count on at least 2 days to view the amazing works of art in these incredible museums!
The food in Amsterdam is certainly interesting! A must-taste is definitely the raw herring that can be purchased on the many herring carts (haringhandels) around the city.
In Westerpark, you will be spoiled for choice will the many Dutch restaurants, bars and coffee shops. There is even a microbrewery and regular food markets with authentic Dutch food (such as cheeses and fish).
Alternatively, pay a visit to the food hall in De Hallen where you can sample a wide variety of mouthwatering Dutch street food!
