The capital of the Netherlands is one of the most charming cities in Europe and the so called „Venice of the North“ will – if not already happened – steal your heart for sure! But what to do in Amsterdam? To make the most of your time, here are some tips and to do’s:
How to spend a perfect day in Amsterdam
Start your day at the Dam Square
The Dam is a huge town square located in the heart and the historical center of the city and the perfect place to discover the city. Here you can find the Royal Palace, The Nieuwe Kerk (New Church), Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum and a lot of musicians, artists and several times a year a funfair.
Take a canal cruise
The famous and UNESCO protected canals of Amsterdam offer several postcard-views and are a famous tourist attraction for a good reason. Floating down the canals and discover the city from the water is a must do to enjoy a perfect day in Amsterdam!
Visit one of the most popular museums
It seems that there is a museums, an exhibition or streetarts in every corner of this city. You just have to leave the main streets and have a look around the smaller alleys and backyards. One of the most famous museum in Amsterdam is the Anne Frank House: Prinsengracht 267, 1016 GV Amsterdam
Eat the best (dutch) fries in the world
Fries for Dinner? Another reason why I love the Netherlands! There are so many small shops that offers fries with every imaginable dip to go!
Go shopping at Kalverstraat
The Kalverstraat is THE shopping street in town. If you are looking for vintage, unique shops and designer stores, head over to „The Nine Streets“.
Drink a Chocomel
Take a break in one of the cute cafes and order a hot chocolate, so you’ll get the famous Chocomel most of the time, it’s kind of a national drink in the whole country. And so delicious!
Stroll around the canals and marvel at the dutch architecture
If you haven’t already left your heart in Amsterdam, now you will.
