This is my Amsterdam Travel Guide with awesome things to do in Amsterdam
The charming city center has more than 1000 bridges, Grachten and beautiful old houses. While taking a stroll through the city, you find many bikes and even have to take care to not crash with one of them. It´s the favourite transportation of Amsterdam´s people with 880000 bikes and a whole cycling network. Considering the small streets and parking, the bicycle is just the easiest way to get around. In average, every week 1 car falls in the canals, so better don´t take your car in the city 😀 If you come in spring, around the end of march and the end of April, you´ll get to see beautiful tulips everywhere!
Which one to choose depends on what you want to see and what was your choice of transport to travel to Amsterdam. If you come from the airport, the best might be the Amsterdam Travel Ticket. Depending on your plans on what things to do in Amsterdam you need to choose. For example you planned to go to lots of museums, do a canal cruise etc, the I amsterdam city card might be best for you. For visiting the Keukenhof or the beach you need to get the Amsterdam & Region Travel Ticket and for transport in the city you should consider the day pass if you need more than two one hour tickets.
Another option is to rent a bike, as the cycling network in Amsterdam is great. It will cost you around 5-15 euro and is a great way to see the city.
A canal cruise is a great way to see the city from a different perspective. There are many different companies all over the city. Most of the times you don´t need to book in advance, you can just go and buy a ticket there. We paid 12 euro for a one hour cruise. Beside the normal cruise, they also offer evening cruises, luxury cruises, candelight cruises, pizza and burger cruises, open boat cruises…
The Rijksmuseum is a national museum at the Museumsplein and has a collection of art including works of Rembrandt and van Gogh. Tickets at the counter are 20 euro for adults and what is really amazing, they´re free for under 18. Online, you get 1 euro off. You can book tickets here: https://www.rijksmuseum.nl/en/tickets/articles
The following things are not really things to do in Amsterdam because thy are not in the city but not more than 30 minutes away and I wanted to include them in my Amsterdam travel guide, because I absolutely loved them and would really recommend to go there if you have enough time.
So, this was my Amsterdam travel guide with things to do. I´ll soon share more about the food and an exact plan on where and how to see the tulips. If you have any recommendations for Amsterdam travel plans and what things to do in Amsterdam, let us know in the comments 🙂
