Welcome to Amsterdam
Amsterdam’s UNESCO World Heritage listed canal network lends this dynamic city a unique charm, informality and a relaxed atmosphere. Known world-wide for its Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank Huis and Rijksmuseum, the Netherlands’ largest city is an all-season destination for sightseeing, cultural events, shopping or partying.
Modern, cutting edge design comes in the form of NEMO, the Renzo Piano designed science museum, and the Python Bridge that appears to twist across the water between Borneo and Sporenburg islands. Outdoors there’s plenty to do: stroll in the Vondelpark, drop by the floating Bloemenmarkt (flower market), visit Artis, one of Europe’s oldest zoos, and enjoy the tranquillity of the medieval Begijnhof. Add the Amsterdam, Stedelijk and Hermitage Museums to the list of must-sees, and it becomes evident why visitors can’t resist jumping on the train for yet another visit.
