Known as one of the greatest small cities in the world, Amsterdam charms visitors with its cool and cozy atmosphere.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mondial Museum and Airborne Cemetery. Venture out of the city with trips to Nationaal Park Weerribben-Wieden (in Sint Jansklooster), Natuurmonumenten Nieuwkoopse Plassen (in Woerdense Verlaat) and Eise Eisinga Planetarium (in Franeker). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Marinemuseum, appreciate the history behind Anne Frank Monument, wander the streets of Historische binnenstad Leeuwarden, and stroll around Oosterpark.

To see photos, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Amsterdam travel route planner.
