Amsterdam | The Netherlands

Amsterdam is an effortlessly cool city. But it gets better. The famous waterways, skinny gabled houses, fascinating museums, rushing bicycles, and unique neighbourhoods are all a short flight from Glasgow Airport.

From mixing with the locals at Amsterdam-Noord to visiting world-famous galleries and museums; here are our favourite things to do in Amsterdam — the bike-friendly city built on 11,000,000 stilts.

Things to do in Amsterdam

1

Hire Bikes and Go Exploring

Amsterdammers are serious about cycling. According to I amsterdam, there are 881,000 bicycles there. Over 2 million kilometers are ridden by residents and visitors every single day, whilst a whopping €120 million will be invested in the area’s infrastructure by 2020.

Why not make the most of 767 km of cycles lanes? They go all over, hugging the three main canals — the 17th century Herengracht, Prinsengracht, and Keizersgracht. There are 165 canals in total, crossed by 1,550 bridges. So hop onto two wheels and go on an adventure, stopping off for coffee or something stronger along the way.

2

Explore the Famous Red Light District

Amsterdam first-timers should pay a visit to De Wallen; the infamous Red Light District located in the medieval centre. It’s known for its bright neon lights fronting “coffee shops” and the red lights of legal brothels where sex workers are publically on show. You’ll find the area just a short walk from Centraal Station. You’ll know you’ve arrived, when you find hordes of tourists wandering slowly to take in this weird and wonderful corner of Europe.

If you’ve visited Amsterdam on a number of occasions, or are looking for something more family-friendly, you might choose to go elsewhere. Try the cool De Pijp, with its boutique stores, Middle Eastern eateries, and laid-back cafes. Want to escape the city altogether? Head to Vondelpark, Westerpark, Rembrandt Park, or Sarphatipark (in De Pijp) for a quick getaway — just relax on the grass in tranquility and do a little people watching.

3

Take the Passenger Ferry to Amsterdam Nord

There’s a wide body of water behind Centraal Station. On the other side is Amsterdam Nord; reachable via a free passenger ferry (travel on foot or with your bike in tow). Spend some time on the grass near Tolhuistuin and enjoy a beer. Perhaps look at the listings and watch a concert in the modernist building that’s at the core of this recently regenerated and relatively tourist-free area.

If you’re a film buff, the EYEfilmuseum has a huge collection of iconic films and posters. Once you’ve finished there you could head up A’DAM tower for a breathtaking view of Amsterdam and its canals beneath. Adventurous travellers might want to cycle north towards Twiske, a nature reserve and recreational area a few miles away. It has an inland beach that’s perfect in summertime for cooling down away from the heat of the city.

4

Go Sightseeing

One of the most popular attractions is Oude Kerk. Founded circa 1213, the church is the oldest building in the city. The Rijksmuseum, the Dutch National Museum, or the Van Gough and Stedelijk Museums are also ideal if you have a morning or afternoon to spare. Anne Frank House is an interesting portal into the city’s wartime history, whilst Rembrandt House, where the painter worked and lived, provides a fascinating look into his life in 17th century Amsterdam.

5

Take a Cruise and Explore 31 miles of Canal

No visit to Amsterdam is complete without a cruise along the picturesque canals. There are different boat trip options — from one-hour jaunts and hop-on, hop-off services, to wine and dine day- or night-time cruises. Decide what’s best for you and cruise along the UNESCO heritage waterways. Once you take to the water, you’ll witness the magical heritage of a liberal city that attracts over 15 million visitors a year.
