Amsterdam, the Dutch capital, stands proud as a picturesque city with great nightlife. Exploring all that the city has to offer is possible with our Amsterdam flights. Strolling through the quaint streets is a favoured pastime with 400 bridges connecting the 90 or so islands that form central Amsterdam. There are about 7000 recognised historic buildings that together create an overwhelming feeling of preserved authenticity. It's worth hunting out two medieval wooden houses that have survived from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
As a sad reminder of the atrocities of Nazi Germany, consider visiting the Anne Frank Museum. The museum is located in the house that Anne Frank and her family hid from the Nazis during the occupation. Anne's story has touched subsequent generations as she wrote a diary detailing her life in hiding. The museum curator has placed extracts from the diary on the house's walls as described by the author. This is a very touching tribute to the Frank family and solemn memorial to all Jews who suffered during history.
While many famous Dutch artists, perhaps the most famous, are Vincent Van Gogh, a post-impressionist painter. The Dutch master's works are now celebrated in the Van Gogh Museum, with an astonishing collection of works covering his career. Cultural enthusiasts will also appreciate the Rijksmuseum, with an enviable collection of paintings by a veritable who of Dutch art including Rembrandt van Rijn, Johannes Vermeer, and Frans Hals and Jan Steen.
Overall, Amsterdam's top sights and attractions are coffee shops, Madame Tussauds, sunset river cruises, and to rent a bicycle and hit the streets to get Amsterdam's authentic vibe.
