Taking a cruise down the Amsterdam canals are one of the most memorable ways to discover the city. They generally take around an hour there are a number of different options and combined packages you can go for.
Fun Fact – They’re protected through a UNESCO.
The historic house where Anne Frank went into hiding during the war and wrote the diary. Located in central Amsterdam, the Anne Frank Museum is a must if you love your history.
The biggest and the most popular outdoor market in Amsterdam. From traditional Stroop waffles to fresh tulips you can find anything at this Market. It is open 6 days a week and is a perfect stop whilst you’re visiting other sites in the city.
Across the river up north, you can take the free and very regular ferry to Overhoeks. which is a trendy modern area. There, you won’t be able to miss the 20-story skyscraper and the iconic eye film museum that you can visit and experience a different view of the city.
The Pancake factory is the perfect place if you’re looking for a cosy restaurant with a very very wide variety of sweet and savoury treats. This place is very popular so do keep that in mind before you pop by.
