Amsterdam Attractions

Choosing a list of only ten top things to do in Amsterdam is particularly difficult. It may be a relatively small and compact city, but it truly has a bit of everything. The best of Amsterdam includes fascinating bike rides on the hundreds of kilometres of car free bike paths, the liberal nature of the city reflected in the red light district and its many coffee shops which are allowed to sell soft drugs, the historical canal area which recently got UNESCO protected heritage status, and the many miles of canals which gave it its nickname Venice of the north. And that's before starting on the world famous museums, art galleries and everything Dutch, like windmills and cute wooden houses.
