Amsterdam will sweep you off your feet. Whether you are a history buff, nature lover or just looking for a fun weekend away, Amsterdam will continually surprise you. Every nook and cranny of the city has so much to offer.
The city is bursting with history. The Anne Frank House, for instance, is one of the most popular attractions, sharing the story of Anne Frank and her family while in hiding during World War II.

Tourists and locals alike can also explore other museums, such as the Dutch Resistance Museum, illustrating the timeline of Dutch opposition against the Nazis, and the Amsterdam Historisch Museum, highlighting Amsterdam’s history in an interactive manner.
One of the best parts of Amsterdam is its charm, picturesque with its peaceful canals. Tour the city by water or wind your way on land and explore by foot or bike. Escape from busy city life and stop at one of the many green parks, such as Vondelpark. Plus, Amsterdam is a central location for you to sneak away to the beach or Dutch countryside.
Wander through the Red Light District, visit a coffeeshop, buy tulip bulbs and climb a Dutch windmill. But also go beyond the stereotypes: explore the history and fall in love with Amsterdam’s charm. With the green space, little boutique shops, winding waterways and more, you’ll never want to leave.
