Project Description

Amsterdam

There are more canals in Amsterdam than in Venice. But do not let this fool you. The city has as many facets as a 40-carat diamond polished by one of the city’s gem cutters, from the capital and spiritual “downtown”, of a nation ingrained with the principles of tolerance to a veritable Babylon of old-world charm.

While impressive gabled houses bear witness to the Golden Age of the 17th century, their upside-down reflections in the city’s canals symbolize and magnify Amsterdam’s contradictions.

Amsterdam’s city centre is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city is filled with museums and art. You must definitely visit the Arts and the Van Gogh Museum, Rijksmuseum and Madame Tussauds. If you feel curious and adventurous you can always take a walk around the Red Light district, or enjoy a lazy afternoon in one of the many coffeeshops. The city has great nightclubs and open-air summer events and has one of Europe’s largest and most vibrant gay scenes.

Best Time to visit

There’s no bad time to visit Amsterdam, but there are two popular seasons. Tulip time (mid-March to mid-May), when both tulip bulbs and hotel prices flourish, and summer season with a variety of cultural events and festivals. Hotel rates are moderate during spring and autumn where the city less crowded. If you don’t mind low temperatures and cold winds, winter has the lowest hotel prices. Hotels are especially busy in top periods such as Queen’s Day (30th of April), and Easter and Christmas, when the city is dreamlike.

Budget Hotels Areas

The city is one of the top European short-break destinations. If you are traveling on a budget stay away from city centre, as prices are high, especially during high season. Look for hotels near Amsterdam Central Station or Jordan district, which are located only 20 minutes away from city centre. It’s always better to book in advance for best rates. You can also find great hostels and dorms for much lower prices.
