Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Room Escape Games and Efteling. Change things up with these side-trips from Amsterdam: The Hague (Louwman Museum The Hague, Escher in Het Paleis (Escher in the Palace), & more), Renkumse Molen (in Renkum) and Rotterdam (Euromast, Erasmus Bridge, & more). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Anne Frank House, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, wander the streets of The Jordaan, and sample some tasty brews at a beer tour and tasting.
