Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere.
Explore hidden gems such as The Jordaan and Food Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Amsterdam: Canals area (in Utrecht) and Groninger Museum (in Groningen). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Anne Frank House, appreciate the extensive heritage of Begijnhof, explore the world behind art at Van Gogh Museum, and get lost in a book at OBA Library of Amsterdam.

Located in the South Holland province, Rotterdam is one of the Netherlands' most lively cities, as well as one of the largest trading ports in the world.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Mauritshuis Royal Picture Gallery and Nieuwe Kerk. Explore Rotterdam's surroundings by going to Skyview De Pier (in Scheveningen) and Bottle Distillery (in Eindhoven). It doesn't end there: don't miss a visit to Witte de Withstraat and admire the landmark architecture of De Rotterdam.

For reviews, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Rotterdam itinerary planner.

Take a train from Amsterdam to Rotterdam in an hour. Alternatively, you can drive; or take a bus. In February, plan for daily highs up to 7°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 8th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
