Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. It’s also a great place to visit if you’re looking to take some time off and relax. Here are ten things that I recommend doing when you’re visiting Amsterdam:

Visit the Rijksmuseum

The Rijksmuseum is a national museum in Amsterdam that houses many works of art from the Dutch Golden Age. It is the largest and most popular museum in the Netherlands, with over 5 million annual visitors.

The museum’s collection includes paintings by Rembrandt van Rijn, Jan Steen, Frans Hals and other masters of 17th-century Dutch Golden Age painting; European sculpture from 1250 to 1900; Asian art from 1600 BC to 1850 AD; an extensive graphic arts collection ranging from ancient Egyptian times through modern times including European woodcuts and etchings by Durer, Rembrandt, Goya and others; Indonesian textiles as well as Chinese ceramics etc..

Enjoy the Dutch countryside

  • Enjoy the Dutch countryside: The Dutch countryside is beautiful and great for cycling, hiking, horseback riding or camping. You can also take a picnic to enjoy in the open air with your friends or family!
  • Visit Amsterdam: This city has so much to offer with its museums, restaurants and shops! Don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity!

Visit a cheese market

A cheese market is a great place to buy cheese, but it’s also an excellent destination for those who want to learn about and eat this delicious food.

Cheese markets are popular in Amsterdam and other parts of the Netherlands, so if you’re looking for something fun and educational to do when visiting Amsterdam, consider checking out one of these markets!

Relax in a coffeeshop

If you’re looking for a place to relax and enjoy yourself, coffeeshops are the perfect solution. The city’s legal status means that they are open to anyone over 18 years old who can prove they are not intoxicated or under the influence of drugs. Coffeeshops offer a variety of cannabis products and have become popular meeting places for locals who want to eat, drink coffee or smoke while talking with friends over a joint.

If you’d like to try some Dutch food while visiting Amsterdam then head on over to one of these great restaurants:

Visit a work of Van Gogh

If you’re an art lover, the Van Gogh Museum is a must-see. The museum houses the largest collection of van Gogh’s work and it’s also a great place to learn about his life and work.

The museum is free of charge and open every day from 9am to 6pm (closed on Mondays).

See Roman ruins

The ruins of the Roman Empire are scattered throughout Amsterdam, but they’re especially concentrated in the city center. The most famous of these is the Forum, a large public square with two temples at each end and a series of columns supporting arches that once held up an elevated walkway. It’s also home to some statues from antiquity (which you can see for free).

In addition to this main site, there are many more ruins scattered throughout Amsterdam: an amphitheater; baths; fountains; aqueducts–even parts of an old basilica where people would come together for worship! Some sites have been excavated recently while others remain buried under modern infrastructure like roads and buildings.*

You’ll find all sorts of information about these ancient treasures online or by visiting any tourist office in town.* You might even want to bring along a guidebook so that when someone asks “What’s that?” about something strange looking sticking out from under their feet (it happens), you’ll be able to answer confidently instead of awkwardly saying something vague like “Oh…that.”

Take a quick trip to Germany

Germany is just a short train ride away, and there’s so much to see. You can get to Germany in less than an hour, so it’s perfect for a day trip!

There are many great cities in Germany you can visit: Berlin, Hamburg and Munich are all popular choices.

Admire the canals and bridges

The canals and bridges of Amsterdam are the most famous features of the city. The canal system was built in the 17th century, when Amsterdam was a major trading power. The canals are still used today by boats and water taxis, but also for recreation: you’ll often see people rowing or cycling along them.

The bridges are another unique feature of Amsterdam; there are more than 600 bridges across its many waterways! They’re great places to take photos, as well as get views of the city from above (and avoid getting wet).


Amsterdam is a lovely city with many things to do. We hope this list has given you some ideas for your next trip there!
