Exploring the City of Amsterdam

No short city break to Amsterdam is complete without a trip on the canals so why not explore the waterways in a hired boat? Or take a magical dinner cruise to see the city by night if you’re seeking some romance during your trip. Whilst you’re on the water, don’t miss the famous Bloemenmarkt - the only floating flower market in the world.

Most places are within walking distance too, or a short ride on one of the city’s famous bicycles so there's no excuse not to try out some of the delicious locally brewed beer at a traditional 'bruine kroeg', or head to the Nieuwezjids Voorburgwa district where you will find fashionable bars.

Amsterdam holidays are ideal for food lovers, with hundreds of restaurants and cafes serving up international and gourmet cuisine as well as the quirky snacks the city has become famous for – try frites with mayonnaise, or the moreishly sweet stroopwafels.

See the Sights

Whether you're looking for a romantic weekend away, a family holiday or a fun trip with friends, a holiday to the Netherlands on an Amsterdam city break has everything you could possibly want.

See world-famous works of art at the Van Gogh museum or the Rijksmuseum, or take in a slice of history at the respectfully preserved Anne Frank house, or just enjoy a stroll around the pretty walk ways.
