Rent a holiday home in Amsterdam to enjoy the city at its best.
The Dutch capital may be small in comparison to its European counterparts, but Amsterdam proves it’s not all about size. Amsterdam holiday homes are a great way to explore the vibrant city without relinquishing your home comforts. Walk, or bike, the historical canal ring, eat a stroop waffle (syrup waffle) and marvel at the architecture of this beautifully quaint city. If the history and culture are on your agenda then you can’t do any better than Amsterdam. Home to Rembrandt, Van Gogh and of course, Anne Frank, you can explore a wealth of attractions and museums from your Amsterdam holiday home.
Schipol Airport: Gateway to Amsterdam
For most visitors the most convenient way to reach Amsterdam is via Schipol Airport. It’s one of Europe’s busiest travel hubs with several flights a day to many international destinations. The single terminal design also means the airport is incredibly easy to navigate. Multiple trains an hour serve downtown Amsterdam, and the journey takes a little over twenty minutes to the central station.
If you’re arriving by train then your terminus will also be Amsterdam Centraal, from which point you can access the metro, extensive tram network or simply hop in a cab to reach your Amsterdam holiday letting . There is also a well-served bus station to the east of the city centre.
Whatever the weather: Enjoy Amsterdam in every season
There are few cities which suit the diverse seasons as well as the Dutch capital Amsterdam, making Amsterdam holiday lettings perfect any time of the year. The city has a typical northern European climate, though its location close to the North Sea often brings strong winds. Winter is cold and snow regularly falls in the early months of the year, while summer is warm with temperatures hovering around the mid-twenties.
Amsterdam holiday lettings are perfect regardless of the time of year. Summer is naturally a time of outdoor affairs and taking to the canals in a boat is a must. Winter offers idyllic Christmas markets and, if you’re lucky, ice skating on the frozen canals.
Amsterdam sights and attractions: A windmill in old Amsterdam
No visit to the Netherlands would be complete without a windmill, and the most centrally located one just happens to have been converted into a brewery. The Brouwerij 't IJ in the leafy Plantage district serves up stunning craft beers daily from mid-afternoon and there’s a selection of bar snacks to soak up the beer. Tours are also available here. Dam Square is home to the royal palace, though the family actually lives elsewhere, and can be visited when the venue is not in use for state events.
Other notable attractions include the NEMO science museum, the weekend Jordaan market and the city’s primary outdoor space, Vondel Park. Amsterdam holiday lettings also offer the perfect opportunity to take to the water. Either hop on a tour or rent your own boat for the day and explore the historic waterways at your leisure.
Art and culture in Amsterdam: Something for everyone
Amsterdam holiday lettings are perfect for those seeking art and culture. There are several museums which are traditional in both curation and content; the Rijksmuseum, The Amsterdam Museum and the Tropen Museum are some of the most notable. For lovers of contemporary art the Stedelijk, located in Museum Square, is a recent addition to the scene and of course, no visit to Amsterdam would be complete without a visit to the Van Gogh Museum to marvel at some of Vincent’s most famous works.
Amsterdam has a rich Jewish history. The Jewish Museum close to Waterlooplein documents the account of this often marginalised demographic and provides an informative backdrop to a visit to the infamous Anne Frank House.
Nightlife in Amsterdam: What happens after dark
Amsterdam has a diverse nightlife scene. Clubs such as Paradiso, Melkweg and Air are regularly frequented by locals and visitors alike. However, that’s only half the story. The city is home to hundreds of bars and cafes which are populated with couples and groups of friends in the evenings. Jordaan and De Pijp are known for having a more sophisticated flair, while the many bars peppering Spuistraat offer a more alternative vibe.
