Amsterdam Travel Guide

by our Netherlands expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanTree-lined streets and canals are like a spider’s web, making Amsterdam an easy place to walk, cycle or boat around. More than a thousand bridges link strings of graceful, gabled houses, none finer than in the Jordaan quarter. Here, wealthy and more workaday homes dating back to the 1600s capture the essence of Holland’s unofficial capital.

Rembrandts and Vermeers hang in the Rijksmuseum, while the genius of Van Gogh is celebrated nearby. By day, canal boats, floating flower markets, antique and diamond dealers all ply their trade, while at night, neon windows around the Oude Kerke district light up, Indonesian rijstafels are laid out and shots of Jenever – Dutch gin – go down a treat.
