Holidays to Amsterdam

The city is known for its fascinating architecture, so anyone taking their holidays in Amsterdam should set aside at least some time to visit to some of its most fascinating buildings. One example of the city’s finest architecture is the Royal Palace. Built during the Dutch Golden Age, this spectacular palace has a fascinating history and is located right in the centre of Amsterdam. Also worth a visit is the Westerkerk, a church that is situated on the banks of the Prinsengracht canal and the tallest building in the city. The canal offers some stunning views of the church at night.

For an insight into Amsterdam’s fascinating history, the Old Centre should not be missed. This is the historical area of the city and offers a wealth of museums where you can explore a selection of cultural artefacts and art. You can view the works of world famous artist, Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn, at the Rembrandt House or stop by the Amsterdam's Historisch Museum, the city’s main museum. The Old Centre is surrounded by The Canal Ring, a World Heritage Site, which is also the location of Anne Frank’s House.

Holidays in Amsterdam give you the chance to explore the city’s many beautiful areas. An ideal location for families or couples is Plantage, a neighbourhood within the city that offers many exciting and interesting attractions. For a look at some of Amsterdam’s most fascinating plants and wildlife, the Artis Zoo should not be missed. It consists of a beautiful botanical garden, a planetarium, geological museum, zoological museum and an aquarium. It is the perfect destination for a family day out.

Amsterdam also offers you the chance to explore many interesting areas by bike, bus or boat. You can explore the sights of the city on one of the many routes that are designated for cyclists or enjoy a relaxing cruise around some of the city’s attractions. You can also explore the city by taking a selection of tours, which can be on foot, boat, bike or bus. Many of these tours enable you to explore areas beyond the city and are perfect those wishing to see some of the most fascinating sights in the Netherlands.

If you are looking for a selection of modern and historical attractions during your Amsterdam holidays, the city boasts architectural styles covering a period of hundreds of years, but when evening comes and you are looking for 21st century entertainment there are also bars, clubs and restaurants. The city is a particularly beautiful place to explore at night, when many of its attractions are lit up. From quiet bars, such as Panama, where you can enjoy views of the canals, to Club 8, which is the spot for younger tourists, Amsterdam holidays have something to offer everyone. The city also has, believe it or not, several beaches, which are popular with tourists.
