Want to know some of the standout things to do in Amsterdam? Then have a look through our handpicked suggestions below...
1. Borrow a Bicycle
There are a number of companies throughout the city that rent bicycles. All the locals are doing it, it's good exercise, and it's pretty much access all areas. All in all, cycling’s the best way to take in the city.
2. Search for the Seven Vermeers
In addition to finding the master Vermeer's seven paintings on display, you can also discover some of the scenes that inspired many of his other works. But don't let it stop you checking out the Rembrandts, Van Goghs, Van Eycks and Mondrians scattered around the city's fantastic galleries.
3. Stuff yourself with Stroopwafel
Stroopwafels are a sort of deliciously gooey cookie or waffle… Very popular as an accompaniment to tea and coffee throughout the Netherlands, they're perhaps not one for the calorie-conscious!
4. Take it Easy in a Coffee Shop
It is Amsterdam, beacon of tolerance and haven of liberal values, after all. You don't have to partake in it, but as a fairly central aspect of traveling to the city, perhaps you should at least see what all the fuss is about.
5. Roam the Red Light District
Ditto No.4. Have a wander about in the Red Light District, and see the city's fascinating, seamy underside
