Description

Amsterdam is the capital of the Netherlands. With more than one million inhabitants in its urban area, it is the country's largest city and its financial, cultural, and creative center. Amsterdam is colloquially known as Venice of the North, because of its lovely canals that criss-cross the city, its impressive architecture and more than 1,500 bridges. There is something for every traveler's taste here, whether you prefer culture and history, serious partying, or just the relaxing charm of an old European city.

Amsterdam Travel Tips & Reviews

Amsterdam was our absolute favorite, so much so we plan on having a joint bachelor/ette party there! Contrary to popular belief, it's not all about smoking. The city itself has the feel of a village and is very clean and the people are so friendly. We recommend you rent bikes and join the traffic, smoke in Vondelpark and then take a nap, gawk at the Red Light District and visit which museums interest you most. We stayed in a hostel here and met a lot of great people to explore the city with.
