Overview

Amsterdam, capital city of the Netherlands

Amsterdam, the capital city of the Netherlands, is located in the province of North Holland. The city got its name from a dam in the river Amstel and was a small fishing village at its creation. Nowadays Amsterdam is a busy seaport and one of the top European financial centres as well as a major cultural hub. The canals, world-famous museums and historical sights makes Amsterdam one of the most romantic and beautiful cities in Europe. Amsterdam can be reached easily by train from other European capitals - Paris, London or Brussels.

About Netherlands


Head to the nearby Oude Zijde (old side) quarter. Its streets are packed with historic buildings and most notably the Oude Kerk, which is the oldest church in Amsterdam. This beautiful Gothic Basilica is now in the heart of the Red Light District!

Found in the very heart of the city, the square marks the place where the 13th century dam on the Amstel River was located. From boutiques and restaurants to monuments and museum, the square is encircled by several attractions. With more than 150 canals, a canal cruise in Amsterdam is not to be missed. Why not seize the opportunity to have lunch during a pancake cruise. After lunch, take the tram from the Dam Square to reach the Van Gogh Museum, which houses more than 200 paintings, letters and other personal stuff of the artist. As the evening is gently approaching, walk to the Vondelpark to let the steam off.

Don’t miss a detour to a Bruin Café for a taste of authentic Amsterdam flavour and Dutch culture. These local institutions with a laid-back atmosphere are a quintessential part of Amsterdam’s culture.

If you are looking for a shopping experience, you can either go to the De Bijenkorf, Amsterdam’s best-known department store or to Damrak.

    Amsterdam to Paris |
    "Me and my wife had an enjoyable trip with Thaly's train. The ride was enjoyable. The food should have been served warm. The seats (for two) were facing backwards! Which in the website were not specifically mentioned. Otherwise we would have booked forward facing seats. Next time we I would ask Thalys if we could book forward facing seats before finally booking. In summary, we had a very good experience with Thalys and the taxi booking service provided after the trip. "

    AMsterdam to Brussels |
    "Train journey was great. very quiet, convenient and left on time. Unfortunately we ran almost an hour late by the time we reached Brussels, apparently due to various signal works or isues enroute. Considering my other train trips were all on time, this was most unusual and I accept that it happens occasionally. "
