Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Age Range:

Customer Travel Tip: Stay further out of the city for cheaper food and accommodation as the transport links are great and won’t be a problem.

Liked: Very liberated and fun atmosphere, people are very friendly. Dutch pancakes are an absolute must!!!! Lots of interesting museums to visit and bike tours that can be done.

Disliked: Bit on the pricey side if you’re travelling on a budget so I recommend staying on the outskirts of the city.
