Amsterdam enjoys a universal fame (some might say notoriety) enjoyed by few other cities around the world. While Amsterdam holidays are perfect for groups of friends looking to live a little on the wild side, family trips to Amsterdam are also popular given the city’s idyllic atmosphere, flower markets, and ease of mobility.
Amsterdam tourism, to many, means hazy hours in coffee shops and late nights in the Red Light District, but a trip to Amsterdam is so much more than a college-age bender. For example, the city’s museum scene is second to none and you shouldn't miss the chance to visit the Van Gogh Museum and admire the works of this modern master. The Ann Frank Museum is another, more chilling stop that’s recommended for all who visit Amsertdam.
An Amsterdam holiday can also be a perfect chance to relax. Take a leisurely boat ride along the city’s scenic canals before enjoying a rich breakfast in the sun and strolling through the city’s famed flower markets. Exploring the city’s renowned beer and cheese shops is another fun pastime and a great chance to pick up some reminders of your Amsterdam trip.
How you begin your Amsterdam vacation depends largely on where you’re coming from. Overseas visitors will likely travel to Amsterdam through Amsterdam Airport Schiphol and then hop on a quick train to Amsterdam city. However, your holidays in Amsterdam don’t necessarily need to involve long flights, as there are also trains and ferries connecting the city with the UK, Denmark, Germany, and Belgium.
