Not many capitals in the world are as chilled out as Amsterdam and this chic city is about as cool as they come. Home to hippies and history, coffee shops and canals, its an intriguing place to discover, whatever brings you here.
Many people visit Amsterdam for business, shopping, nightlife and city breaks, but in fact the place has so much more to offer than its city thrills. The Anne Frank Museum, Red Light District and Van Gogh Museum are all obvious attractions, but the various festivals (over 300 in fact!) that visit each year fill Amsterdam with even more activity. Youve seen nothing until you witness the Gay Pride festival floating down the canals full of colour, or partied with the locals at one of the various dance festivals.

Did you know that gin was actually invented in the Netherlands? However you won't get the authentic stuff if you ask for gin in Amsterdam.

Alternatively, families can enjoy a taste of famous Dutch pancakes at the Pancake Bakery, for a real sweet treat after a day of sightseeing.
If you want to escape the city for a few hours, take a road trip to the Noord-Holland or Zuid-Holland region to see the picturesque landscape of tulips, rivers and windmills that Holland is so famous for.
