Thanks to its cosmopolitan flair, laid-back style and rich cultural heritage, the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, is simply a tourist's delight.
Much of central Amsterdam, with its 17th-century buildings and rings of glittering canals, is stunningly beautiful. Make the most of it by taking in the sights on foot from your hotel in Amsterdam, or even better, experience the city like a local and hire a bike for the duration of your hotel stay.
Guests of our Amsterdam accommodations are almost overwhelmed for choice when it comes to culture. For artists such as Vermeer and Rembrandt, visit the Rijksmuseum; for modern art, head to the nearby Stedelijk Museum. Amsterdam wouldn't be Amsterdam without museums dedicated to sex, torture or hemp.
While Amsterdam is a shopping and design mecca, why not search out some of the city's markets for something different? Waterlooplein flea market offers everything from collectibles to curios. The Noordermarkt Farmer's market is a great place to pick up some delectable goodies for a picnic. Afterward, head to one of Amsterdam's many parks, such as the Vondelpark, Museumsplein or Sarphatipark.
And if your feet are tired from all that walking, you can take a bike taxi back to your Amsterdam hotel.
