The best things to do in Amsterdam

On the list of things to see in Amsterdam,
we should start with Dam Square. It's the historical center of the city and is home to some of Amsterdam's most iconic buildings. From there, visit the Royal Palace, one of the top Amsterdam attractions, and enjoy the neoclassical architecture of this building which was home to the monarchy from 1655 to 1808.

Another of the best places to visit in Amsterdam
is the fifteenth-century Nieuwe Kerk, a stunning Gothic church and traditional place to celebrate New Year's Eve. One of themost classic things to do in Amsterdam
is a stroll through the Red Light District, so named after the colored light filtering through the windows. Though the Red Light District has some of the best stuff to do in Amsterdam, it can seem a little scandalous to first-time visitors. Prostitution is legal in Holland and visitors will see many brothels with girls on display, sex shops and even an erotic museum, the Museum of Sex.

Museums are also some of the best attractions in Amsterdam. The Van Gogh Museum is one of the most prominent, next to the Anne Frank House Museum and the stunning Rijksmuseum which houses works by Rembrandt, Rubens and artists from the Golden Age.

If you have time, one of the best
Amsterdam activities
is a visit to the Heineken Experience, the legendary beer factory where you can test their creations and learn a little about the beer making process. For more on what to do in
Amsterdam
, have a look through the great tips and reviews from real travelers on minube.
