With its combination of history, culture and nightlife, Amsterdam is a city for all seasons. Luxury Amsterdam Holidays are full of memories, lets us help create yours.
Start by renting a bike – Amsterdam is one of the most bike-friendly cities in the world and you’ll see cyclists everywhere. It’s a perfect way to see this compact city, at least from the land. There’s over 100 kilometres of canals in Amsterdam, so a canal cruise is essential for seeing some of the landmark canal-front architecture.
There are a number of museums worth a visit in Amsterdam, including the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and Anne Frank’s House, as well as less traditional choices like the Erotic Museum in the Red Light District. For some more modern exploration, take a tour of the Heineken brewery, or take a day trip out to admire the tulip fields.
For local food, try the haring (that’s raw herring), stroopwaffle, or one of the many local cheeses. Whatever you want to try in Amsterdam, beat the queues and make your trip one to remember when you book with Your Travel.
