Amsterdam is famous for its rich history and is also known as the “Venice of the North”. This is because of the many canals and the 1680 bridges in the city. Whether you’re in town for a short visit or a long stay, there’s lots to do for everyone. Famous sights are the Rijksmuseum, Dam Square and the Anne Frank House.
Sailing in Amsterdam
With the city being so beautiful by foot, can you imagine the view by boat? For a good sailing around tour, you must definitely go to the famous Amsterdam canals. The Prinsengracht is the busiest one. But you can also go on bigger waters such as the Amstel and the IJ, where you'll spot bigger boats.
Things to do in Amsterdam
Amsterdam has plenty to offer for both short and long stays. When you don’t have a lot of time, combine sightseeing with a bit of shopping in the Kalverstraat and a drink at the Leidseplein. When you’re in a little longer, have a stroll on the Albert Cuyp Market, a street market in the cozy neighbourhood ‘De Pijp’. The fun thing is you can create your own route!
