Things to do in Amsterdam

There’s more to Amsterdam than just the storybook charm of its Golden Age architecture and quaint canals. This pocket-size city likes to think big. Its acclaimed museums hold the world’s largest collection of van Goghs, along with impressive Rembrandts, Vermeers and modern masters. Plus, its eco-friendly attitude and proud history of embracing diversity has long attracted international attention. With so much going for it, we’ve made it easier for you by sharing our top picks. From the Rijksmuseum’s homegrown collection to Anne Frank’s heart-rending house, discover the best the city has to offer. And don’t forget to soak up some gezellig – the Dutch concept of cosiness – at any number of bruin cafés. Top six things to do in Amsterdam 1. Admire masterpieces at the Rijksmuseum Brimming with Dutch masterpieces such as Rembrandt’s The Night Watch, this museum is a must for art lovers. With over 8,000 works on display, it’s impossible to see it all – head to the second-floor Gallery of Honour for Golden Age art if you’re short on time. The intricate Delft pottery is also worth a look. 2. Visit the Van Gogh Museum Boasting the world’s largest collection of van Goghs, there’s no better place to explore the life and works of this troubled genius. Housing a mix of lesser-known drawings and famed paintings, it shows the fascinating transition of Vincent van Gogh’s style, from sombre Dutch landscapes to bright, swirling sunflowers. 3. Uncover Anne Frank’s story For two terrifying years, Anne Frank and her family hid from the Nazis in the back of a canal house that dates back to 1635. Seeing the airless annex in real life is an unforgettable and emotionally charged experience. A tour can also show you other places she visited during her childhood and the shop where she bought her now-famous diary. 4. See the sights with a canal tour Floating down its many canals is one of the most atmospheric ways to see the city sights. Extending around 100 kilometres, these canals are an iconic symbol of Amsterdam, while the picturesque 17th-century ring area is also UNESCO World Heritage listed. Options range from general tickets to a luxury experience. 5. Enjoy a bike ride through the city In a country said to have more bikes than people, it’s only natural that the best way to explore the city is on two wheels. Not only do you get to experience Amsterdam like a local, with over 515 kilometres of dedicated lanes it’s also a convenient way to get around. Less confident riders can opt for an easy bike tour. 6. Discover the Dutch countrysideCrisscrossed by canals and dotted with windmills, the Dutch countryside is as picturesque as it gets. Take a day trip from Amsterdam and discover the attractions just outside it. Top places to visit include Marken island, with its wooden homes, the windmills of Zaanse Schans and the flower-filled fields of Keukenhof Gardens
