Explore the capital Amsterdam
The capital of the Netherlands has the allure of a big metropolis. However, everything can be reached by foot. It is a fantastic city to go shopping, visit museums, walk along the city canals or just to soak up the culture. The beautiful canal houses and historical monuments that date back to the golden age are authentic. One example is the Palace at Dam Square. Leidse square is the place where everything happens. Here you can find many terraces, cinemas, the municipal theatre, other theatres and nightlife.
The Rijksmuseum and Anne Frank House are the places of interest that you should not miss out on. However, a canal cruise is also amusing. The Artis Zoo, the eldest zoo of the Netherlands in the city centre, which will not close after sunset during the summer months is great for children. Kids and parents who are not scared should go to the Amsterdam Dungeon, which is the city’s most scary and thrilling attraction.
Tip: with the IAmsterdam City Card, you can make unlimited use of all public transport. You also get discounts or even free admission to most museums and sights.
