Sights in Amsterdam
This city is beautiful in daylight, but becomes even more impressive at sunset. Go for an evening walk and enjoy the lighted streets, canal houses and bridges. Because all sights are close together, the perfect way to discover the city is by foot or on a bike. Cycling is very popular in the Netherlands, so you can rent a bike on almost every street corner. Head for the Albert Cuypmarkt, a street market since 1905 where you will be surprised in both culinary and fashionable terms. Make a stop at the Rijksmuseum to see its most famous painting ‘De Nachtwacht’ by Rembrandt van Rijn. If you would like to see more of Rembrandt’s work, visit the Rembrandthuis close to Waterlooplein.
The Vondelpark is the city’s largest park, a very popular destination if you like to run, walk your dog or just chill out. In summertime the Vondelpark is also the place to be for free open-air concerts. Mingle with ‘the Amsterdammers’ and make yourself at home in Amsterdam’s most beautiful city park.
