(2 votes)

From its humble beginnings as a 13th-century fishing village, Amsterdam is now a major hub for business, tourism, and culture. The city is a melting pot of cultures, lifestyles, religions, and beliefs. Its residents come from more than 180 different countries, making Amsterdam one of the most multicultural cities in the world.

Amsterdam has a broad spectrum of recreational and cultural sights, but with over 50 museums, they are the main tourist attraction. Museums such as the Rijksmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, and Stedelijk Museum attract millions of tourist each year. The Anne Frank House is one of the most moving experiences a traveler can have.

There are countless other ways to see Amsterdam. Biking, boating, busing, or walking, as well as sailing or a windmill excursion will suit every taste. Amsterdam is also a biker’s city, although the streets can get a little chaotic. The latest estimates conclude that there are more bikes in Amsterdam than permanent residents!

A tour or excursion is also a great way to discover Amsterdam and gives you the chance to see and experience a side of it that you might never see. For example, a canal cruise is an absolute must for every first-time visitor. Or travel outside the city and experience the typically Dutch landscape of windmills, dikes, and manicured green pastures. Stroll through quaint fishing villages, take a boat tour along the scenic waterways, or cycle along the dunes.

  • Aquariums

    Oceans cover 71% of the Earth’s surface, and we’ve only explored about 5% of it. That leaves so much of the Earth that we know nothing about. Not everyone can dive right into the water to look at the ocean life, so why not do the next best thing? Aquariums give us a window into a whole other world. Most locations around the world have aquariums; some larger than others.

  • Cross Country Skiing

    Cross country skiing began thousands of years ago as a means of transportation and is still used for that purpose today.
