The largest city in the Netherlands, Amsterdam truly is a charming place to visit with its architectural history, its extensive canal network and open minded village feel.

Cosy at it's core. The best way to experience Amsterdam is with a visit to a traditional Dutch pub (bruin café) or whiling away the evenings in one of their many snug restaurants.

Amsterdam is popular amongst tourists in the summer months with reasonably mild temperatures of 20 to 22. Or you could visit during the spring to see the beautiful tulips. During the winter months temperatures are just above freezing and it can be very windy.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS) is the largest airport in the Netherlands and is less than 20 minutes by train to Amsterdam Centraal railway station. Once you arrive in the city, you can either hop on a canal boat or take one of the free ferries behind Centraal station. The city is also one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the world. However, it is estimated there are around 600,000 bicycles in Amsterdam so it can get chaotic for those not used to cycling.

There is so much to do and see in this diverse city, whether it's visiting the historic site of Anne Frank's House, dropping into one of the many museums or taking a picnic to Vondelpark, what are you waiting for, it's time to book your Amsterdam city break today.
