Headed to Amsterdam? Sure, it’s famous for being a place to cut loose, but it’s also home to beautiful canals that rival Venice, historic architecture and a laid-back charm. So even if having an entire in-flight cocktail all to yourself is as wild as you get, there’s still a great time waiting for you when you land.
Getting Around Amsterdam
Flights to Amsterdam land outside the city centre, so you’ll want to find a ride into town. Try the NS Dutch Railway trains or the 197 Airport Express bus. Taxis and Uber cars are quite common too. Amsterdam is also bike-friendly, so rent or fly in your own two wheels. And of course, you could always check out our car rental options after booking one of our Amsterdam holiday packages.
When You Land…
Hopefully your plane lands in the morning, because you’ll want to get started early to see all 7000 (wow) registered historic buildings. Maybe start in the old medieval city centre, where most of the best architecture is. If your Amsterdam flights land in the afternoon, take a canal tour to see some of the city’s best sights and finish up around sunset. After dark, catch some live entertainment at the Bostheater or Vondelpark open-air theatres before checking into your Amsterdam accommodation.
Live Like a Local
This city has some of the best museums in the world, featuring some of the most famous people in the world. Check out the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank House or the Rijksmuseum—home to some of the best Rembrandt and Vermeer pieces. Want something that will make the locals think you’re one of them? Pick up a bottle of red wine and uncork it on the green grass of Vondelpark.
