What to Do and See in Amsterdam

Sure, everyone knows about the coffee shops -- but what else is fun to do in Amsterdam? Holland’s capital city is a hub for happy cyclists, lazy beers by the canal, and art-lovers. As you start planning what to see, here are ten activities you can’t miss.

Anne Frank House

Whether you’ve read the diary or not, the Anne Frank House is a must-visit. If you want to avoid the tourist traffic, book a ticket in advance and hop to the front of the line.

Amsterdam Canal Ring

By boat or by land, you won’t be able to avoid Amsterdam’s famous canal ring. Go for a stroll, hop on a ferry tour, or people-watch in a canal-side bar.

Van Gogh Museum

The Van Gogh Museum is home to the world’s largest Van Gogh collection, and one of the most popular museums in the world. Even the artistically uninterested love the modern architecture (and free wifi).


Find your way to Museumplein, the "Museum Quarter" at the heart of the city. Three museums, lunchtime concerts in the Concertgebouw, plenty of shopping, and grassy green space.


The national museum of Holland boasts works by Rembrandt and Vermeer. Plan to arrive first thing or in the late afternoon - or book a Rijksmuseum ticket in advance in order to skip the queue.

Red Light District

Whether you’re looking for a museum, a “souvenir," or some risque nightlife: the Red Light District is sure to delight and entertain.

Heineken Experience

Established in 1864, Heineken is now one of the world’s biggest beer producers. The lighthearted, fun, historical tour takes a quick 90 minutes. The Heineken Experience ticket includes two beers.

New Church

A part-time wedding chapel for Dutch monarchs, New Church is Holland’s most important church and a historical cornerstone in Amsterdam. Between coronations, check out their rotating exhibits.

Amsterdam Museum

For city history, visit the aptly-named Amsterdam Museum. Educate yourself on everything from famous Amsterdamians to fashion and architecture. Some exhibits are interactive!

De Pijp

Amsterdam’s go-to bohemian neighborhood is brimming with coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. Go before dinner and spend the late afternoon wandering through the Albert Cuypmarket.

Planning Your Amsterdam Visit

How many days should you spend in Amsterdam?

There’s no right answer, but you can get a real feel for the city if you allocate three full days. That will give you enough time to hit the big sights, see the canals, and explore your way through some neighborhoods.

Getting around town

Amsterdam is an easy city to navigate. While the public transport is first class, most visitors find that the city is compact enough to be 100% walkable, save for the train to-and-from Schiphol Airport. Plus, you can easily rent a bicycle when the weather's nice.

How expensive is Amsterdam?

While there are a couple big activities you will have to pay for (like the Anne Frank House and the Van Gogh Museum), Amsterdam is full of street markets and small independent galleries. And the city is so walkable that you won’t need to spend a lot on public transportation.

Good to know

  • Language
    Dutch and lots of English
  • Currency
    Euro (€)
  • Time Zone
    UTC (+01:00)
  • Country Code
  • Best time to visit
    There’s never a promise of good weather in Amsterdam, but you can expect milder temperatures and longer days between April and September. April is especially lovely -- those famous tulips will be blooming, and you can celebrate Holland’s biggest holiday of the year, King’s Day.

What people are saying about Amsterdam

Excellent day out where you can embrace all that is Dutch culture!

This is a whole day trip, and the added great weather made it better! Beautiful flowers, friendly and helpful guides. I felt the time we had at each attraction was perfect as you also get time to explore the locations yourself as well as have a guided tour. It was good to explore the location outside of Amsterdam!

A brilliant and fun way to see lots of sights in Amsterdam!

BART, our guide, was very relaxed, inspired confidence and was flexible in accommodating requests from the group. We learned lots of interesting facts about sights visited along the way. Absolutely recommend this tour. Thank you.

simply fantastic - a privilege- an amazing exhibition -thank you

Well done to the team who managed the seemingly impossible task of bringing together such a collaboration between nations, cultural organisations and individual owners of these amazing works. It was a privilege to be given the opportunity to enjoy and admire them. Thank you.

Fun and practical activity to start your Amsterdam visit

I had a fun and enthusiastic guide named Ben take a group and myself around Amsterdam. He was great at keeping an eye out for us in traffic and showed us a lot of popular attractions as well as small corners that would have easy to miss otherwise. The tour was a great starter activity to have on the first day, as we were shown around the whole city and got a good feel for where everything was. It cleared up some areas for me that I wanted to explore further and some I didn’t necessarily need to come back to this time around. Very nice tour over all, would definitely recommend.

One of the best art experiences ever! Do it twice.

Like a highly rich meal, you need time in between courses to digest the content. Two hours one day and return the next day for more would be an even better experience. Be sure to listen to all of the audio opportunities.
