Rent a bicycle or take a boat trip to really get to know this hip city and its bustling streets and waterways. There are a range of hotels in Amsterdam to suit most budgets and requirements, ensuring you can relax and make the most of your stay here.
Amsterdam’s 17th century canals run through the heart of the city and have been awarded World Heritage status. Lined by iconic, narrow buildings and home to many sleepy houseboats, a stroll along the maze of canals is a pleasant attraction in itself. When you need to relax, there’s always a café nearby. A combination of pub and cafe, ‘brown cafes’, as they are called, have an intimate, cosy atmosphere and serve a range of traditional drinks and snacks.
More adventurous visitors might be intrigued by the city's famous red light district, in the old town area, with its window displays and sex shops. Despite initial reservations some may have, the area has a strong police presence and is populated by a range of people, from hen parties to tourists, seeking amusement and titillation more than anything else.
Arts and Culture
The city has a number of important museums which attract visitors from all over the world, quickly filling up most of the cheap hotels in Amsterdam during the summer months.
The Rijksmuseum houses the largest collection of classical Dutch art, with nearly one million objects from around the country. Some of the most famous pieces on display are the works of Rembrandt, including his masterpiece, De Nachtwacht (The Night Watch).

Amsterdam has three main theatres which host a wide variety of entertainment. The Stadsschouwburg is the former home of the National Ballet and Opera and offers a mixture of contemporary and traditional plays, mainly by Dutch writers.

Restaurants and cafes
Amsterdam’s food is as rich and diverse as its culture, with sweet, savoury, mild, and spicy dishes to suit any appetite.
Dutch pancakes are a popular meal that every visitor should try, we recommend Pannenkoekenhuis Upstairs (so long as you don’t mind the steep staircase up to the restaurant) which serve generous sized helpings of this favourite, the bacon and syrup pancake being particularly delicious.
Stroopwafels (two thin waffels with syrup in the middle) are another Dutch classic which can be bought packaged as a souvenir or eaten fresh.
Two of the best places to try hand-made stroopwafels are a little café called Lanskroon, in the centre of the city, and from the vendor in Albert Cuypmarkt who makes them from fresh throughout the day.
Indonesia was a former colony of the Netherlands and has contributed significantly to Dutch cuisine, particularly with the rice table (Rijsttafel in Dutch).
This dish consists of small plates of spicy meat, fish, or vegetables that can be shared between groups for more variety.
For food on the go, chips with peanut sauce (another Indonesian fusion) are a very addictive Dutch snack and can be bought at most street stands. Raw herring may not sound appetising to everyone, but, served with onions, is another popular street food snack.

In addition to the traditional bars serving beer and snacks, there are various nightclubs around the city, such as the Escape, Club Home, and Panama.
