Canals, Cafes, Windmills and Pedal Power... Welcome to Amsterdam
Sit back, relax and soak up the beauty of Amsteram. There's plenty of places to do so as well; while cruising the canals or whiling away the hours in a traditional brown cafe (so named for their wood panelling). Due to Amsterdam's extensive artistic heritage, you can enjoy a fine collection of masterpieces at its galleries. A must-see is the renown museum, Rijksmuseum. The Van Gogh Museum has around 700 paintings and drawings by Vincent and his contemporaries, including Monet, Gauguin and Toulouse-Lautrec.
If you've picked up one of Amsterdam's 800,000 bicycles and been using pedal power to navigate the city, you'll have an appetite. For traditional and modern Dutch food, try these Amsterdam restaurants: Loetje, Moeders, Greetje, Haesje Claes and De Silveren Spiegel. You can also find an excuse to eat cheese at any time of the day here (Gouda is Holland's favourite) and this city makes a host of its own brews. Once fed and watered, cycle over to P.C. Hooftstraat for exclusive shopping. If you're looking for out-of-the-ordinary accommodation, Amsterdam is the perfect city to stay on a houseboat.
