Amsterdam hotels are scattered around a beguiling sprawl of canals and cobbled lanes. The Dutch capital is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe, and with its welcoming ambience, accessible layout and blend of high-brow culture and red-hot nightlife, it’s easy to see why.
From our abundant Amsterdam hotels, the sleepy canals and pedestrian-friendly streets lead to fascinating museums, historic buildings and a host of cosmopolitan bars, restaurants and nightspots. Visitors are drawn here by Amsterdam’s cutting-edge nightlife, and the anything-goes attitude has made the city famous across Europe.
There are many ways to discover this bewitching city. From your Amsterdam accommodation, take a boat tour through the dreamy waterways to Anne Frank’s house, or view Amsterdam’s signature architecture from one of its iconic trams. Alternatively, make like a native and take a meandering bike ride through the backstreets, or negotiate its oldest and best-known attraction, the Red Light District, on foot.
Don’t miss a trip to Museumplein – home to such blockbuster institutions as the Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk and the Van Gogh Museum. Other must-sees include handsome Dam Square, dominated by the mighty Grand Palace, and the much-loved Hermitage, which stands proudly above the River Amstel.
