Your guide to Amsterdam
All About Amsterdam
Amsterdam draws visitors to its iconic canals, centuries-old townhouses, cobblestone lanes, world-class museums, and delicious restaurants. The city’s rich history can be explored through institutions honoring its famous inhabitants, such as the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum, and those seeking immersion in a live cultural setting head to The Concertgebouw to hear music in a pristine acoustic space.
The Dutch capital also has leafy parks and one-of-a-kind shops to explore. You can easily spend a day in Amsterdam wandering the streets, popping into sidewalk cafés, dining on world-class cuisine, and exploring the local bar, club, and gallery scene.
If you’re looking to travel a little further afield, Amsterdam is also a great hub for day trips to The Hague, Utrecht, and Delft.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Amsterdam
Late spring is arguably the best season to visit a holiday apartment in Amsterdam. The mild temperatures are perfect for biking around the city and exploring the surrounding countryside. Starting in early April, the legendary tulips begin to bloom, which lures travelers from around the world. The famous King's Day carnival — a massive city-wide birthday party for the king of the Netherlands — is held on April 27, and is another major draw.
Amsterdam enjoys an oceanic climate and never gets much above 28 degrees Celsius. The weather in the fall is pleasant, with temperatures nice enough to spend time outdoors. During winter, the days are short and there's a frosty chill in the air — but it’s still a beautiful time to be in Amsterdam, with the frozen canals sparkling and the cozy pubs beckoning.
Top things to do in Amsterdam
The Moco is devoted to modern and contemporary art stars. This private museum opened in 2016 and features a large permanent collection of more than 50 pieces from an ever-popular and mysterious British graffiti artist. It’s housed in Villa Alsberg, a beautiful traditional townhouse overlooking Museumplein in the heart of Amsterdam. Built in 1904, the villa was one of the first family houses in the area.
This unique sauna was created using stunning Art Deco interiors salvaged from Paris’ famous Au Bon Marché department store. The stained glass windows and winding wrought iron staircase make this canal-side destination a wonder to behold. In addition to the various baths and relaxation rooms, there are infrared saunas, a solarium, and private massages available. The unisex saunas and baths follow a strict no swimsuits policy, but towels are allowed.
Rembrandt House Museum
The home and studio of the master Dutch painter from 1606 until 1669 underwent extensive renovations in the 1990s, including one that restored the building to the same state as during the artist’s original occupancy. This 17th-century building houses many of the artist’s etchings, graphical pieces, and paintings, and shows unknown aspects of the famous painter’s life and his artistic craft.
