Travel to Amsterdam and Experience These Top Five Sites!

Amsterdam is such a unique city that truly is unlike any other place.  Since I’ve been there a few times, I thought I’d give you my top five sites.

  • Museums – Amsterdam is home to many museums (I believe there are at least 37!).  So truly, you could spend your entire trip traipsing through amazing museums.  Visit Museum Quarter where you’ll find three of the main museums, – Rijksmuseum, Stedelijk Museum and the Van Gogh Museum.
  • Historic Sites – Amsterdam also has many historic sites worth viewing.  My favorite is Anne Frankhuis.  You get an opportunity to visit the actual building where Anne Frank, her family and friends hid during the German Occupation.  It is a somber place where you can see the once hidden rooms that contain memorabilia and the presence of these special people who spent two years of their lives hidden behind the walls.
  • Dam Square – When you travel to Amsterdam, a great starting place is Dam Square that lies in the centre of Amsterdam.  You will see locals and tourists all intermingling around the terrific shops, market stalls, cafes, bars and restaurants.  When in Dam Square, make sure you visit the Koninkliik Palace – this is where the Dutch royal family used to live and can be found on the west side of Dam Square.
  • Amsterdam By Canal – If you are taking the time to travel to Amsterdam, then you must explore the city from its unique canals.  The canals truly are one of Amsterdam’s most famous attributes.  Three main canals surround the inner city: Herengracht, Keizersgracht, and Prinsengracht.
  • Artis Zoo – Well, I’m a bit of a zoo fanatic and I had to visit the oldest zoo in the country.  Founded in 1838, Artis Zoo features an amazing aquarium (complete with a salt-water section and fresh water tank), a wonderful Planetarium, botanical garden, Zoological Museum and Geological Museum.  A really fascinating way to spend a day!

I hope you get the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam in the near future.  It is a wonderfully compact city (consider traveling around by bicycle as the city is very bike friendly) and there are many things to see and do!
