Two weeks ago, we went to Amsterdam, the relaxed city with a cosy atmosphere and lifestyle.
Despite the wild reputation of the city, there is a broad selection of cultural attractions. You will find a great amount of museums, fx the world famous National Maritim Museum, Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.
A good advice is to get in line in advance, and don’t be too lazy to get up early, and be there before the open, it is worth the efford. The lines to the museum are huge, and belive me, you do not want to be the last in line.
In Amsterdam you will also find a lot of different gastronomic. All over the city there is a vast amount of restaurants and cafes. You will find different areas of nationalities, fx italian, argentian, asian and a lot others. It can take quite a while to decide what to eat.
Dive into the small and narrow streets with the labyrint of canals, where you find peace and quite during daytime, and at night a lot more life. Around the canals there is a lot of fantastic architecture, and when you are visiting the city, it becomes quite clear, why Amsterdam has the nick-name The new Venice.
In the canals there is a lot of different houseboats, which give a cosy and mixed impression. There is always something happening in the canals, and you must take one day of the calender for canaltours. You will find a lot touroperators, and you can spend a lot of time, seeing Amsterdam from the seeside.
The Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde-ish city of Amsterdam turns in some areas into a totally different place at night, where you will finde a broad varity of bars, live music, coffeeshops, and the notorious Red Light Destrict, which is full of red light “shopping windows” and lige shows…
I leave the rest up to your own imagination.
