Welcome to Amsterdam!
the world-famous historic Canal Ring, Amsterdam City Centre district ('Centrum') is home to a host of renowned museums, charming and high-end shopping areas, fantastic culture and entertainment. With a full cultural agenda showcasing the very best festivals, nightlife, exhibitions & events, plus practical tourist info, hotel, museum, excursion & attraction listings, you won't miss a thing.
Amsterdam is a very beautiful city, there are many different visions of this wonderful city.
Being much smaller in size and population than Dublin, and with minimal traffic in the city centre, you could be forgiven for forgetting that you were in a city with such a large global reputation.
The intricate network of canals adds a beautiful trait to the city. It is surprisingly easy to get around and also surprisingly small – to get from Dam Square to the Leidseplein should take less than a fifteen minute walk.
Food - Indonesian food became the order of the day after World War II as many Indonesian immigrants came to the Netherlands, so Surinamese / Chinese / Indonesian cuisine is quite authentic for a European city
Shopping - Running parallel to Rokin is Kalverstraat and it’s here that you could spend all your time and your money. Clothes, shoes, books, sportswear, gadgets, more clothes and more shoes.
Holiday Season In Amsterdam - The Dutch really know how to make the most of the holiday season... starting with Sinterklaas; a Dutch tradition complete with pepernoten and parades!
Besides providing a stunning backdrop to the city’s historical centre, floating down Amsterdam’s canals is one of the most memorable ways to discover the city's sights and attractions. Whether you’re a first-time or frequent visitor, everything in Amsterdam seems a bit more magical when viewed from a boat.
Most canal cruises take around an hour, in which you'll explore Amsterdam's UNESCO protected canal ring and discover plenty of interesting facts about the city along the way. As well as the excellent one-hour options, other types of canal cruises available include practical hop-on-hop-off services, romantic candle-lit tours, child-friendly adventures and intimate guided boat tours for smaller groups.
