The city of Amsterdam justly enjoys great fame as the proud owner of one of the most important intact historical centres in the world. The distinctive cityscape is dominated by its concentric canals, many lined with former residences of merchants and burghers.
Amsterdam is best seen by canal, by tram
or on foot.
A 'hop-on, hop-off' boat will show you most of the main sights, and will provide quick links between the highlights. Nowhere is very far from anywhere else!
Amsterdam is a vibrant, modern, cosmopolitan city properly proud of its past. There is never a dull moment there - check Dam Square or Leydesplein if you don't believe us!
