Local Guide

Visitors are drawn to the sheer beauty of Amsterdam’s canals, which are flanked by elegant 17th century merchant houses. Although Amsterdam has all the features of a metropolis, its scale is modest. You can easily see most of the city by just roaming through the labyrinth of alleys and waterways. Some of the world’s finest art collections reside in Amsterdam, alongside trend-setting design shops. The residents of Amsterdam, a big attraction in the historic city, are generally known as laid-back and friendly. ‘Amsterdammers’ are more than willing to help you with directions, most likely in your native language.

We have prepared an official Amsterdam preparation guide which features useful tips and tricks on navigating through the city like the ‘Amsterdammers’ do. This fun infographic is also full of interesting facts about the numerous attractions that this city has to offer. Click on the link so to learn more and be on your way.
