Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere.
Visiting The Amstel and Emperor's Canal (Keizersgracht) will get you outdoors. Get a sense of the local culture at Van Gogh Museum and Museum Het Rembrandthuis (Rembrandt House). Venture out of the city with trips to Canals area (in Utrecht), World Heritage Kinderdijk (in Kinderdijk) and The Hague (The Mauritshuis Royal Picture Gallery, Louwman Museum The Hague, & more). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Zaanse Schans, engage your brain at Body Worlds, explore the world behind art at Moco Museum, and contemplate the waterfront views at Herengracht.
