What to know about Amsterdam

Amsterdam is renowned as one of Europe's most popular tourism hotspots. As the heart of the Netherlands, the capital city receives more than 5.3 million international visitors a year. Most of these travellers originate from Europe, but the allure of Amsterdam also brings in a fair share of international tourists from the USA and Australia, too.

Amsterdam boasts famous museums such as the Rijksmuseum, The Rembrandt House, and the Tropenmuseum. Tourists marvel at the city's abundance of classic architecture with sites like the Royal Palace, Magere Burg, and Oude being just a few examples of the beauty on offer. With multiple concert halls, fantastic public transport infrastructure, and plenty of fine dining restaurants as well as street food vendors to cater to the foodies, Amsterdam's stellar reputation as a tourism hotspot comes as no surprise.

What to do in Amsterdam for a weekend

If you're planning a short trip and you're worried about how to cram everything in and make the most of your limited time in Amsterdam, rest assured. We've done the homework for you and laid out our top options for day plans, nightlife, and opportunistic last-minute experiences to give you an idea of how many days to spend in Amsterdam to cover the top attractions.

Day 1: Taste Amsterdam’s bitterballen

To start with, we'd highly recommend kicking off by experiencing some local food if you travel to Amsterdam. If you’re on the go, then it’s hard to beat the crispy meatball treat called bitterballen. Fried and enjoyed with spicy mustard, these have the perfect kick to get you on your journey. Vegetarians can also keep an eye out for patat, a regional take on fries served with ketchup, curry sauce, and chopped white onion.

With some food in your belly, it's time to recharge and savour the sights with a bike ride. Amsterdamse Bos, Hortus Botanicus, Sarphatipark, and Vondelpark are just a few examples of the many beautiful parks to enjoy.

Day 2: Explore De Pijp

With a full second day ahead of you, check out some of Amsterdam’s famous museums and cultural sites. No matter the season, there are always plenty of exhibitions going on. Whether you're going with a guided tour or travelling by your own compass, it’s best to plan out your route and sites ahead of time so you don’t miss out.

If you’re after a broader taste of Amsterdam’s food potential, then De Pijp offers many fantastic restaurants and cafes. De Pijp is set around the Albert Cuyp Market, which first opened in 1905 and has been going strong ever since. Those looking for an amazing flea market can also check out Waterlooplein, an atmospheric bazaar and the perfect place to pick up a memento with some history.

As the sun sets, three popular choices stand among the best for nightlife. These include the Jordaan district, Rembrandtplein, and Dam Square. Offering everything from party culture to relaxed nightcaps, keep these places in mind and you'll be set.

Day 3: See the views from the A’Dam Tower

If you haven’t already, a cruise down the canals can be a great way to sign off on your Amsterdam experience. For a view of the city, the A’Dam Tower also offers spectacular sights, where the daring can swing out over the edge. Whatever strikes you, just remember to keep an eye on the clock, as it's easy to get caught up and risk missing your flight!

In order to discover the beautiful landscapes of the surroundings, you can always rent a car in Amsterdam and travel the open road.

The best time to visit Amsterdam

The best time to travel to Amsterdam will depend entirely on your general availability, reasons for visiting the city, and budget, with each time of year offering different advantages and disadvantages.

For example, if you want to make the most of the good weather and appreciate the vibrancy of an action-picked metropolis, you'll likely want to visit between April and September. During this time the weather is mild, and Amsterdam happens to host some incredible events including The Open Garden Days (Open Tuin Dagen), Kwakoe Zomer Festival, a Gay Pride Canal Parade, and the Pluk De Nacht – Open Air Film Festival.

If you're up for exploring Amsterdam but want to avoid long queues and extremely busy streets, we'd recommend the September to November period. With fewer festivals, there might not be as many big outings at this time, but the restaurants, museums, and atmosphere will remain in full swing.

If you're on a budget, November, January, and February are considered to be the cheapest months to travel to Amsterdam. The weather will start to turn the later you arrive during this time, however, and the temperatures are known to get quite cold. On the plus side, when the canals freeze, they open up ice skating rinks!
