Here are a few impressions from our Amsterdam trip. My sister and I have been to Amsterdam before, so this had been our second trip to the Neatherlands. So this time we just enjoyed the little streets and corners, the shops and cafes. We really had some relaxed and nice days.
We took the plane to Amsterdam, which was really easy and quick. I would recommend flying to Amsterdam if your having only a few days to visit the city. The easiest way to get around in Amsterdam is taking the local transportations like Bus (from the Airport) and the tram inside the city. To explore the little streets, called „Grachten“ I recommend just walking or renting a bike.
Tipp : Buy a 48h ticket on the tram, 12,50 Euro per Person and you can use this ticket for 2 days, as often as you like.
My favourite parts of Amsterdam are „Harlem“, „Jordan“ and the „9 Grachtjes“. They are located close to the center DAM Square. There are so many cute cafes and shops located ther. I loved wandering around the little streets and exploring some hidden locations. But I don´t want to give away to many things, because I have already planed another blogpost about where to eat and where to shop in Amsterdam. So stay tuned !
If your interested in art like me and my sister, I would recommend visiting the „Rijksmuseum“ which is located in the Museums Square. You can adore Rembrandts „Night Watch“, Vermeers „The Milkmaid“ and also a few of Van Gogh’s paintings. If you like the art of Van Gogh you can also viste the huge „Van Gogh Museum“ , close to the Rijksmuseum. Or if your more interessted in Modern Art have a closer look at the „Stedelijk Museum“.
I also recommend downloading the „Trip Advisor“ APP on your cellphone. I found this app really helpfull to find breakfast / lunch spots and also to find hot spots in the city your visiting.
Have you ever been to Amsterdam? And if so, where are your favourite spots to go to ?! I would love to read about it in the comments, or maybe you could link your own travelpost about Amsterdam underneath this post!
