How to enjoy Amsterdam

This flat land of windmills, waterways and waterworks is made for cycling. Everyone’s at it, from grandmothers with handlebar baskets stuffed with bread and flowers, to speedy youths clad in figure-hugging orange Lycra

  • Visit The Tuschinski Theater in Amsterdam; one of the most beautiful movie theaters in the world it features marble, stained glass and an ornate facade
  • The impressive Oosterscheldekering storm barrier off the northern coast is just one of the ways the Netherlands protects itself from flooding
  • The Hague is packed with stunning architecture from the spires of the Peace Palace to the lovely parliament building Het Binnenhof

In the country’s capital Amsterdam, do as the locals, hop on a bike and roam the quaint canal side lanes. Discover the 9 Straatjes, nine little streets packed with small and exclusive boutiques selling everything from antiques and curios to handbags and jewelry. For a hauntingly moving journey into Amsterdam’s history, visit the Anne Frank House where the Jewish teenager hid with her family and another in a secret annex during the Second World War, only to be betrayed and killed months before the war’s end.

No visit to Amsterdam would be complete without some exposure to art. The world-renowned Rijksmuseum has an impressive collection of Dutch masters and the Van Gogh Museum houses the world’s largest collection of works by Vincent Van Gogh, including Sunflowers and Self-Portrait with Felt Hat. Head out of town in springtime to catch sight of spectacular flower fields. Some of the best can be found behind the dunes between the cities of Leiden and Den Helder.
