Amsterdam City Breaks
Amsterdam View breaks >>
To some it's the canals, carillons ringing out from church steeples and the variety of Dutch gable that defines Amsterdam. To others it's the eccentricity and quirky lifestyle.
Anne Franks HouseMore than half a million visitors annually make their way through this preserved house, to the revolving bookcase that conceals the entrance into the small gloomy rooms so vividly described in Anne Franks diary.
Westerkerk ChurchThe 17th century Royal Palace, is the most beautiful of the four churches built to the north, south, east and west of the city's core. The West Church, the church most visited by tourists in the city, has the largest nave of any Dutch Protestant church
Royal PalaceThe town hall was transformed into a royal palace in 1808 after Napoleon made his brother Louis King of Holland. Today it serves as an occasional residence for Queen Beatrix. Don't be put off by the sober exterior and step inside!
RijksmuseumHollands most important museum houses a collection that is a glorious evocation of the Dutch Golden Age of the 17th Century. Although operating on a limited basis, while most of the building is being refurbished, it still boasts an array of treasures.
Van Gogh MuseumIt is a moving experience to trace Van Gogh's tragic life and achievements, through such a varied display of art, Japenese prints and contemporary works. The museum houses 200 paintings, 500 drawings and 850 letters. (not shown).
VondelparkWith its wide-open spaces, fragrant rose gardens, playgrounds, bandstand and cafes, Vondelpark is the most popular park and a great place to escape from the busy city streets.
