Flights to Amsterdam, Netherlands

Visit Amsterdam, one of the biggest small cities

Fly to Amsterdam, also known as the Venice of the North, since it is criss-crossed by countless canals in which its tall, narrow old houses are reflected. Few cities combine past and future so successfully. Discover one of the most romantic and picturesque cities in Europe.

Amsterdam for urban travellers

Hire a bicycle and join the locals. See the works of Dutch masters in the Museum Quarter. In fine weather, enjoy a break in the Vondelpark, the city's green lungs. Then take a boat trip along the canals and see the city from the water. Buy clogs, cheese or tulips at one of Amsterdam's many markets. Visit the Anne Frank House. In the evening walk through the famous red-light district and sample the local beer in one of the many pubs on the Rembrandtplein.

Amsterdam for art lovers

Amsterdam also has more than 50 different museums. Visit the Van Gogh Museum to admire the works of the great Dutch master. Masterpieces by Vermeer and Rembrandt await you just a few streets away, in the famous Rijksmuseum. And if you still haven't seen enough Rembrandts, there is always the Rembrandt House Museum (Rembrandthuis). The impressive Stedelijk Museum contains modern and contemporary art and design.

Amsterdam for romantics

Start your day with a visit to the fragrant Bloemenmarkt, the world's only floating flower market, and buy a colourful bunch of tulips. Then set off for a romantic boat trip along Amsterdam's canals. Stroll through the quiet streets and attractive gardens of the Jordaan district. Visit one of the centuries-old diamond factories and see how diamonds are cut – and perhaps even buy one. End the day with a romantic dinner on the Leidseplein, one of Amsterdam's busy squares.
