A first-timer in Amsterdam may be surprised to discover that in fact, Amsterdam has a very wide range of channels. Channels have been the result of a large city planning in the 17th century to meet the need for new residential developments to house an influx of immigrants. The strategic position and dug canals, also served as a (gap) for the management of defense and water. Amsterdam is truly an inner-city very similar to Venice. However, the canals of Amsterdam, were approved. Amsterdam is a city rich in culture and art. After Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Gogh was Dutch. If you are a free spirit, a book on the Amstel Botel. This hotel is located on a pier, where shops and cafes are hip-cool.
The city is a popular tourist destination especially among Europeans. In not so distant past, oriented more toward the “right” in Amsterdam. Your accommodation in Amsterdam should not be a luxury hotel. The best mode of transport in Amsterdam is a motorcycle. The city has an extensive track or cycle lane to use the Dutch two-wheel bicycles to get around. Watch where you walk so you should never enter the bike path unless you want to be hit by a bike or cursed by the cyclist. Most Dutch speak English. Do not insult your intelligence by trying to speak Dutch. So if you step on the bike path, you can be cursed in Dutch and English.
Coffee line the canals and streets of the city than others. Coffee shops of Amsterdam are famous! Coffee and pastries served in the coffee is worth it. Bring cash! Most shops and restaurants only accept cash or debit card spot. A trip to Amsterdam will never be complete without going through the red light district of fames. Visit the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank House, Rembrandt House Museum Het Albert Cuypmarkt and more. Get in a boat and hip-channel!
Need a vacation and want to configure his family, some of the wonders of Europe? Travel to Amsterdam. This little gem of a city is located in the heart of the Netherlands. Is a picturesque place with its cobbled streets along multiple channels. I was fortunate to live in Amsterdam for 2 ½ years while working for United Airlines. I lived in an apartment in the Hotel Pulitzer. And, with the privileges of free flight and Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport) ideally only two hours flight to the cities of Europe, almost all large, I travel a lot.
1) The Anne Frank House is located one block from the Hotel Pulitzer. Intact from the time of his hiding place of Anne Frank, this museum offers a stark reminder of the humble and spartan past atrocities of the Second World War. Here’s an interesting point … after work one day, when I visited the hotel bar, the waiter asked if I noticed something different today on my way home from work.
2) A short train ride from Amsterdam is a small city called Madurodam. It is a city with a precise (and wide) porcelain replica of the city of Amsterdam. Each building, all channels, including an exact replica of Schiphol airport is contained in that block of time “city” response. Nearby, you can visit one of many local porcelain factory.
3) The main seaport is called the port of Amsterdam. Offers and amazing collection of boats, gondolas, oil and the water taxis all co-exist in the large bay. Even my husband joined Guy was surprised to see how structures are built, how “poor” and how long they lasted.
N 24 / 7 shops here. You can search for restaurants hidden bit small, and be prepared to spend some time enjoying food. Rijsttafel Netherlands is a traditional food which is something that is known.
