Amsterdam

Venice of the North

Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere. The city is made up of a network of picturesque canals with small streets lining each side. The little squares, many bridges, and tall, thin houses lend a special intimacy to the place, earning Amsterdam the nickname "Venice of the North." Although the city is quite touristy, it is also the most populous city in the Netherlands, which allows you to blend in with the locals for an authentic experience. The 17th-century architecture combined with booming industries make it a popular destination for travellers with a variety of interests. Whether you are interested in the history and culture contained in the many museums, want to stroll down the quaint streets of an old European city, or just looking for a good party, Amsterdam has much to offer. Our The Netherlands visit planner allows you to schedule your trip to Amsterdam, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.
