City break

Age Range:

Customer Travel Tip: Walk. Most things can probably be reached by foot from dam square within 20 minutes.

Liked: Beautiful city to visit. Lots of nice restaurants to visit. Stunning buildings. Friendly locals.

Disliked: Virtually every restaurant you walk past where there is outdoor seating, you are approached by the staff asking you to come in. I prefer to just browse and choose.
