What to do while in Amsterdam

A trip to Amsterdam wouldn’t be complete without visiting the Rijksmuseum, which is one of the most famous museums in Europe. Art enthusiasts will also want to set aside time for the Van Gogh Museum, containing one of the largest collections in the world of the artist’s works. Head out on a day trip to visit the nearby city of Zaanse Schans, which is less than a 1-hour drive away. 

Summer in Amsterdam

There is also Dam Square, which can be found near the city center and is surrounded by some of the city’s most famous buildings. For a unique experience, go to Bloemenmarkt, the world’s only floating flower market.
