Old Center

Amsterdam is not only the capital city but also the cultural and financial hub of the Netherlands. Its Old Center is the medieval-era part of the city, where you can admire one-of-a-kind buildings and streets that possess world-famous historical and cultural value. Amsterdam is known as the “Venice of the North” because of the romantic canals that wind through the city. The Old Center hosts thousands of returning holidaymakers year after year, as the area encompasses Amsterdam’s historical district as well as its cannabis café district and adult entertainment enclave. This holidaymaker hotspot’s lovely canals, vibrant flower market, and variety of interesting museums also attract high numbers of dedicated enthusiasts during all seasons of the year.

  • Visit the Amsterdam Historisch Museum, located in Old Center, where you will learn about the city’s history through collections that include paintings and archaeological artefacts.
  • Explore the colourful and fragrant world of Amsterdam’s Flower Market, in the Old Center, with its flowers of all types, bulbs, seeds, and souvenirs.
  • Admire 260 unique etchings at Rembrandt House, where the famous artist once lived—a facility that also includes exhibits describing the famous artist’s methods and processes.

Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport, located approximately 15 kilometres from the city, accommodates domestic and international flights. Frequent, regular trains run from the airport to central Amsterdam. Taxicab and bus services are also available. Amsterdam is well connected to many European cities via train. Within Amsterdam, public transport consists of metro subways, trams, buses, and boats. The Old Center’s central location makes it easy to reach. Amsterdam Central Train Station is located at the northern edge of the Old Center, and many bus and tramlines run through the area.

Lots of attractions, Red Light district, Anne Frank House (which we couldn't get in to see as lines were round the block all day long). Took a photo of the house front and gave up. Revamped jewish quarter, river cruise (worthwhile), lots of little...

I loved, loved love it!! I will go back and plan my trip better. So much to do there and the canals are great. I highly recommend a stroll through the red light district. Very cool!!!
