Things To Do In Amsterdam
Amsterdam breaks are becoming more popular and with the Dutch capital packing such a huge variety of things to do into such a small space it's always a good idea to equip yourself with an easy means of accessing all the top attractions. Two flexible tours that do just this are the City Sightseeing Amsterdam buses and canal boats. Both of these tours offer flexible transport between key districts while also revealing interesting facts about the city via their live and pre-recorded audio guides. Why not enjoy free entry to the Gassan Diamonds Museum with your bus ticket? Other popular areas to hop-off include Artis Royal Zoo (stop 4), the Jewish Historical Museum (stop 6), and Vondelpark (stop 10).
Jump aboard the canal cruise boats for a fun means of accessing Hermitage Amsterdam, the Heineken Experience, and Anne Frank House. The boats are a handy means of transportation regardless of the weather, as their roofs can alternate between open and closed top.
Were you looking for one of the themed canal cruises? Why not try one of these delectable journeys: Amsterdam Beer & Burger Cruise, Pizza Cruise, 4-Course Dinner Cruise, and Candlelight Night Cruise.
Right at the heart of Amsterdam is where you'll find four attractions highly popular with all kinds of travellers. The Amsterdam Dungeon is a theatrical comedy-horror experience that unravels the darkest chapters in Dutch history. Madame Tussauds Amsterdam lets you come face-to-face with contemporary and historical personalities from around the world. At Gunther von Hagens’ 'Body Worlds: The Happiness Project', you'll get to view over 200 anatomical specimens and explore the spiritual and biological effects of happiness on the human body. Finally, whether as a nightlife outing or a sociable tipple, check out the Amsterdam Icebar. This sub-zero themed pub offers a drinking experience in an atmosphere of -10 degrees celsius and with furniture made entirely from ice!
Speaking of nightlife, if you really can't decide what to do when the sun sets then why not take a fun and simple guided pub crawl, or try a walking tour that delves into the Red Light District. Our other popular on-foot excursions let you skip the line at the Van Gogh Museum (highlights lecture included), and even spend a full day exploring Holland's artistic legacy.
If you'd like to get out and see more of the country then we have a number of day tours covering popular destinations, such as Volendam & Marken. You can also pre-book fast-track entry tickets for Efteling Theme Park, one of the largest and most spectacular of its kind in Europe.
