Weekend in Amsterdam - The Greatest Hits



Description:

Amsterdam has a lot of things to see and do, but because it's a small city geographically, it's very easy to do most of the main sights in one weekend. From museums to restaurants, you're always walking distance from some of the most exciting places in Europe.

Day 1 - Amsterdam


Two of Amsterdam's most famous museums are located right next to each other in Museumplein, so start your day at the Rijksmuseum and then head over next door to the Van Gogh Museum. After all that art and culture you'll probably be hungry, so head over to Albert Cuypmarkt, the city's largest outdoor market, and stop for lunch at Bazar. The restaurant is located in an old church, making it a unique dining experience. When you're ready for a drink, head over to another interesting museum, the Heineken Brouwerij. The old brewery now houses a museum as well as a few bars where you can have a few pints before hitting the night away in Leidseplein. If you're not afraid to party all night long before day two of sightseeing, go to Paradiso; another church converted into social venue.

Day 2 - Amsterdam


A visit to Rembrandthuis gives you a look at life in the Golden Age of Amsterdam, while showcasing an impressive collection of the artist's work. Rembrandt's house is just minutes away from the famous Bloemenmarkt, which happens to be on the way to Dam Square and the Royal Palace. In half a day you were able to see the most important sights at the heart of the city. The Anne Frank Huis is to the west of the city center, and is better visited in the late afternoon when the queues aren't too long. Down the canal is the Pancake Bakery, a great place to try Dutch pancakes. For your last night in Amsterdam, head into the Red Light District and explore the city's most famous neighborhood; it's perfectly safe at night.
