Anne Frank Huis

Don't be put off by the large queues, as this iconic Amsterdam museum really is worth the wait. Packed with history, the Anne Frank house tells the tale in a moving way.

Canal Side Amsterdam


Biking around Amsterdam is a must, however, if you are intimidated by the busy streets, then rent your bikes (we recommend MacBikes) and cycle around Vondelpark.

Red Light District

Engrained in Amsterdam's culture, the Red Light District is an experience you will never forget.

Flower Market

Amsterdam is known for its tulips, therefore it is only right to visit the Flower Market during your stay. Located only the Singel Canal, it has everything associated with flowers and tulip traditions in Amsterdam.
