Come and travel to unforgettable Amsterdam


Famous for the Max Bygraves hit song “Tulips of Amsterdam”, the capital of the Netherlands may well be, but there are so many more reasons why it is an ideal place to take a holiday in Holland.

You are spoiled for choice when it comes to accommodation in Amsterdam too because besides hotels, B&Bs and apartments, there are also many hostels there, and a price range to suit every pocket.

Amsterdam has so many tourist attractions with its festivals, museums, parks, bars, restaurants, a vibrant nightlife, and just like Venice is full of canals but no gondolas! But you can take cruises on these waterways, as I discovered on my holiday there.

Amsterdam is famous for its museums, and one of these is the Van Gogh Museum, dedicated to the work of one of the most famous artists to have ever lived.

It is easy to find because it is in the aptly named Museum Square and is said to be one of the most popular museums for art in the world. It is easy to see why if you like art.

Speaking of squares, no visit to Amsterdam would be complete without checking out theDam Square. Popular with people and pigeons, the Dam Square is a great place to experience and to relax at any of its many cafés and bars.

You can usually find some form of entertainment going on, such as the songs and routines of its street performers.

Getting around Amsterdam is easy enough and you have a choice of means of transport. Besides the boats on the canals (already mentioned), there are buses, trams, taxis and a metro service.

Bicycles are very popular too and you can always rent a bike if you fancy cycling around and getting fit at the same time.

About Frank Scheers

Mijn geboortestad Amsterdam is een prachtig uitgangspunt voor journalistiek. Amsterdam staat voor vrijheid van meningsuiting en tolerantie. Als journalist wil ik mij vrij en zonder beperkingen kunnen uiten over hetgeen zich in Amsterdam afspeelt, maar ook in de rest van de wereld. Ik schrijf zoveel mogelijk mijn eigen content, maar scan ook de rest van de wereld af naar opvallend nieuws. Dit nieuws hoeft niet altijd breaking news te zijn. Dit kan heel interessant nieuws zijn dat even belangrijk is als breaking news, maar iets minder bekend is, maar net zo belangrijk kan zijn voor de opinievorming. Naast nieuws uit Amsterdam en wereldnieuws richt ik mij ook op fraaie artikelen over politiek, mode, luxe artikelen, gezondheid, het milieu, entertainment, life style, business, onderwijs, shopping, gastronomie, reizen et cetera. Amsterdam Today is een actief online news magazine en wij brengen artikelen in het Nederlands en in het Engels. Belangrijk om te noemen is dat Amsterdam Today zich bezig houdt met Immersive Journalism. Dat wil zeggen dat wij fascinerend nieuws brengen in combinatie met virtual reality technieken. Je ervaart dan het nieuws alsof je er zelf bij bent. My hometown Amsterdam is a wonderful starting point for journalism. Amsterdam stands for freedom of speech and tolerance. As a journalist, I can express freely and without restrictions on what is happening in Amsterdam, but also in the rest of the world. I write my own content as much as possible, but also scan the rest of the globe for striking news. This news doesn't always have to be breaking news. This can be very interesting news that is as important as breaking news, but slightly less known and just as important to the way people form their opinions. In addition to news from Amsterdam and the world news I also write about articles on politics, fashion, luxury, health, environment, entertainment, life style, business, education, shopping, wining and dining, travel and so on. Amsterdam Today is an active online news magazine and we bring articles in Dutch and in English. Important to mention is that Amsterdam Today deals with Immersive Journalism. That means that we bring fascinating news in combination with virtual reality techniques. You will experience the news as if you were there. Contact: Website | More Posts
