To prioritize the things to see in Amsterdam, we should start with Dam Square. It's the historical center and it has some of the most iconic buildings of the city. More stuff to do in Amsterdam include visiting the Royal Palace, one of the many Amsterdam attractions, a building in neoclassical style and home of the city council from 1655 to 1808. Another one of the places to visit in Amsterdam, and more specifically in the historical center, is the gothic Nieuwe Kerk, dating from the fifteenth century. Also, this is where people celebrate New Year's Eve. More things to do in Amsterdam include a stroll through the red light district, so named after the light colour in the windows. Although this area of the city can be a little outrageous, remember that prostitution is legal in Holland, which is why you can see girls on display, many sex shops and even an erotic museum, the Museum of Sex. Other attractions in Amsterdam are museums, of which there are many. The Van Gogh Museum is one of the most prominent and best, next to the Anne Frank and Rijksmuseum, that houses works by Rembrandt, Rubens and artists from the golden age. And if you have time, more Amsterdam activities include the Heineken Experience, the beer factory where you can test their creations and learn a little about the beer making process.
