Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere.
Get some historical perspective at World Heritage Kinderdijk and Gouwekerk. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Zaanse Schans and The Jordaan. Change things up with these side-trips from Amsterdam: Canals area (in Utrecht), Markthal (in Rotterdam) and Kroller-Muller Museum (in Otterlo). Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Museum Ons' Lieve Heer op Solder, appreciate the extensive heritage of Begijnhof, gain insight at Body Worlds, and admire the landmark architecture of St Jansbasiliek.
