Holidays in Amsterdam

Location and orientation

The capital of the Netherlands

Amsterdam is both the capital of the Netherlands and the most populous city in the country. Around 840,000 inhabitants live in the port city, which belongs to the province of North Holland. At Amsterdam Amstel and IJ flow into the IJsselmeer, the Nordzeekanal connects the harbour with the North Sea. The city is especially famous for its many canals.

Seven districts of very different character

Amsterdam is divided into seven city districts: numerous tourist attractions are located in Amsterdam-Centrum within the canal belt. Amsterdam West, Nieuw-West and Zuid are typical residential areas connected to the canal belt. Amsterdam Oost is the youngest district in the city, known for its multicultural Dapp Market. Amsterdam North is separated from the rest of the municipality by the IJ. Amsterdam Zuidoost is an exclave outside the city limits, known for its annual summer festival.

Travelers and Activities

Amsterdam for families

In Amsterdam there are many things for families to do. A boat trip along the canals is exciting for children and adults, for example. If you don't want to be chauffeured, you can rent a pedal boat, a so-called water bike. When the sun is shining, the Zoo Artis is also worth a visit. In rainy weather we take the historic tram through the city.

Amsterdam for cyclists

In no other city in the world are people cycling as often as in Amsterdam. About 40 percent of the locomotion takes place here on the bike. In the narrow streets of Amsterdam's city centre, you can also travel much faster by bicycle than by car. You can bring your own bike with you to the vacation rental - or you can book guided bike tours. The bright yellow "Yellow Bikes" take you to the most important sights.

Amsterdam's houses are built on a total of around eleven million wooden piles. The 15 to 20 metre long piles prevent the houses from sinking into the muddy ground.

Top 5 travel tips

1. Within the canal belt

The characteristic canal belt earned Amsterdam the nickname "Venice of the North". The original canals Singel and Kloveniersburgwal served as defensive ditches. Around 1640 further moats were dug for goods traffic. Today there are 165 canals with a total length of over 100 kilometres. The three main alleys are the Herengracht, Keizers- and Prinsengracht, which form concentric semicircles and enclose the historic Old Town of Amsterdam. Within this belt lies today's main shopping area, the Negen Straatjes (Nine Streets).

2. The church in the middle of the red light district

The oldest church in Amsterdam is located in the red light district of all places. The Oude Kerk (Old Church) was built in its present form around 1560 and is in Gothic style. Today it houses several large exhibitions. Every year in April, for example, the World Press Photo Show takes place here.

3. The royal palace

In the heart of Amsterdam city centre you will find the Koninklijk Palace, the Royal Palace. At first the palace functioned as a town hall, only when Napoleon made his brother Louis king of the Netherlands, he was proclaimed as a royal palace. On the forecourt, the Dam, many carnies entertain the visitors today. The wax museum Madame Tussaud's is also located here.

4. The Vondelpark

To the south of Amsterdam city centre lies Vondelpark, an artificial city park. Only five minutes on foot separate him from the entertainment district at Leidseplein. At small ponds, surrounded by sunbathing lawns, cafés and restaurants, you can relax from sightseeing in Amsterdam.

5. Shopping at Amsterdam's markets

If you would like to take care of yourself in the holiday home, you can stock up on Dutch cheese and other local specialities at Amsterdam's markets. The most famous street market in the city is the Albert-Cuip market in the trendy De Pijp district. The Dappermarkt in Amsterdam Oost is multicultural and always takes place from Monday to Saturday.
