a guide to the best-loved Amsterdam attractions

Sightseeing and things to do in Amsterdam

A key part of any visitor's Amsterdam sightseeing has to be a cycle ride. With countless beautiful canals and quaint bridges to navigate, the city is surely a two-wheeler's best friend.

While cycling around the sights, a stop at Vondelpark should be at the top of the list of things to do in Amsterdam. In this beautiful green space, one of the biggest in the city, visitors on Amsterdam tours can enjoy a picnic or join the many locals and tourists who flock here in the summer weather to enjoy the calm and relaxation.

Say Amsterdam to most people and they’ll conjure up images of people on Amsterdam tours, visiting a certain type of cafe – before emerging several hours later with a new-found love of reggae music and a heightened respect for their fellow man.

However, most people enjoying any Amsterdam tours find that the city holds much more than just legal grey areas and specialist botany. Amsterdam tours can reveal much of the fascinating history of the place and there is always a hidden gem lurking around the corner.

But this isn't to say that Amsterdam tours shouldn't include the modern side of the city's life, which is full of music, art, cinema and all kinds of culture to keep even the most energetic tourist occupied from sunrise to sunset… and quite possibly to sunrise the next day.

Anne Frank’s House

Anne Frank and her family famously hid in the annexe of this Amsterdam town house to escape the Nazi’s who occupied Amsterdam at the time. Their home remains as it was at the time of their capture – providing a poignant reminder of the atrocities of the Holocaust and a shining testament to the human spirit.

The Red Light District

Equally notorious and intriguing, the Red Light District is the centre of Amsterdam’s legalised sex industry. Most visitors to the city will find themselves wandering the streets at some point during their Amsterdam city break, not being able to resist "taking a peek."

The Van Gogh Museum

The centre of Amsterdam's nightlife, the Leidseplein is flanked on all sides by some of the city's liveliest pubs and a range of events take place in the centre of the square throughout the year.

Paying tribute to one of the Netherlands most famous exports, the Heineken museum takes brewery tours to the next level.

Madame Tussauds Amsterdam

The Amsterdam version of the world-famous wax museum, meet a range of “celebrities” from Barack Obama to Beyonce under one roof.

The Amsterdam Dungeon

The most chilling periods of European history are portrayed by a range of live actors and special effects at this family-favourite Amsterdam attraction.


For many Jordaan is what people imagine when they think of Amsterdam, the narrow houses and winding canals make up Amsterdam’s most charming district.
