Amsterdam

Chances are you will already be familiar with the stereotypical image of Amsterdam – a city of meandering canals and cycle ways, with a bohemian spirit and bold edge. But that’s just skimming the surface of this remarkable destination.

With its bobbing houseboats, quaint flower stalls and locals cycling leisurely from place to place, Amsterdam has an old-world charm evocative of a sleepy village. But look elsewhere and an exuberant modern metropolis reveals itself, bursting with world-class cultural institutions, cutting edge style and renowned nightlife – injected with a famously liberal, unabashed attitude. It’s a bubbling melting pot of cultures, where both convention and innovation are celebrated. So hire a bike, hop on a canal boat, or simply sit back with a frothy beer and soak up the ‘gezelligheid’ or warm embrace of Amsterdam.

Museum Quarter

Amsterdam is synonymous with art and within its aptly-named Museum Quarter are some of the finest houses of artistic treasures in the world. The Van Gogh Museum boasts over 200 works by the tortured artist Vincent and his contemporaries, including Monet and Toulouse-Lautrec. Another must-visit for art lovers is Holland’s largest gallery, the Rijksmuseum, offering a collection of masterpieces. Browse the Museum Quarter’s exclusive boutiques. Or head east to the cosmopolitan De Pijp neighbourhood for cool cafés and eclectic restaurants.

Vondelpark
