About Amsterdam

Amsterdam is renowned the world over for its vibrant culture, intriguing attractions, and stellar nightlife. Book an Amsterdam apartment rental for your next vacation, and enjoy the city like a local, strolling the canals by day, exploring bars in the evening, and returning to the comforts of home whenever you make your way to bed.

Things to Do

Amsterdam is a stunning destination where you can enjoy yourself as much with an aimless stroll as with an organized itinerary. Criss-crossed with historic waterways and more bridges than Venice, the capital of the Netherlands offers plenty to see. Take a canal cruise or dinner cruise to see the beautiful sights of Amsterdam, or rent a bicycle to explore the city at your own pace.

Among its highlights is the Museum Quarter. Here, you'll find the country's largest collection of art at the Rijksmuseum, including works from Rembrandt, Van Dyck, and Vermeer. If you're more interested in modern works of art than classic pieces, the Stedelijk Museum is another must-see, with Picasso, Matisse, Warhol, and Chagall in its collection. Vincent Van Gogh has an entire museum dedicated to his works here, with 500 drawings and 200 paintings.

The Anne Frank House is another must-see during a trip to Amsterdam. It is the actual home in which Anne Frank hid from the Nazis and wrote her famous diary, and it is a moving place to visit.

For young and young-at-heart vacationers, catch a show at the Amsterdam Marionette Theatre. Here, traditional wooden puppets put on unique shows of musical theater, and shows are held each week. Go to the Bijlmerweide Petting Zoo to see many animals and to enjoy the playground and café on-site. The family will also enjoy making a trip out to one of the eight working windmills in Amsterdam. Windmills used to be an integral part of Dutch life, and they are an impressive sight to see in person.
