Things to do.



Amsterdam is famous for it’s canals, and they offer a unique opportunity to see the city from a different angle. Floating through 16th & 17th century town house, warehouses and tree lined avenues, glass topped boats offer tours from docks around Centraal station. More energetic visitors can hire pedalos, and the more romantic can opt for a candlelit cruise at night <more>


Get on your Bike

Clean, green and healthy! Flat terrain, bicycle lanes, and the compact size of the city make cycling the choice of real Amsterdammers. Just watch out for tram lanes and remember to lock it to something solid!! <more>


Visit a Museum -

Amsterdam has more museums and art treasures per square metre than any other city on earth. With museums for fine art, photography, anthropology, handbags, sex, science, torture and film - to name but a few - the variety and choice is huge. And not always what you would expect from a museum. <More>


Take a hike

In fine weather Amsterdam offers up many of her secrets and glimpses into her past to those willing to take to the streets. From guided tours to podcasts – you can take it at your own pace and discover the city for yourself. Or just pick a direction and get lost to find your own Amsterdam.

If you just want a quiet stroll try a walk on the south bank of the Amstel river, if you're looking for spectacular views head to the top of 'NEMO' in fine weather.




With more than 1200 restaurants Amsterdam is a foodie’s delight. Don’t just treat food as a pastime – get involved. Amsterdam in the most cosmopolitan city in the world – and the food is a tribute to this variety – whatever tickles your taste buds - get stuck in!


Get Lost

Enjoy the view

On a clear day head for the top floor cafe of Metz & Co in the Leidsestraat – grab a coffee, and savour a bird’s eye view of Amsterdam!


Bottle it

Feed your ears

Park it

Pack some food, a drink and a blanket and take a stroll into the Vondelpark, relax by one of the lakes, and watch the people spin past. A lively vibrant attraction in  height of summer, a beautifully tranquil oasis in the winter.
