Dam

The Dam is the main square of Amsterdam. On the Dam square you can find the National Monument, commemorating the Dutch war victims, and many monumental buildings, including the royal palace of Amsterdam.

Canals

Amsterdam is famous for its many canals and the typical canal houses. A good way to enjoy these is by foot, an even better way is on a canal cruise.

Anne Frank house

The building that houses the famous secret annex where Anne Frank and her family were hiding from the nazis is now a museum, and well worth a visit.

Central Station

Tram leaving Central Station

The 19th century monumental building of the Amsterdam Central Station, designed by architect P.J.H. Cuypers, is where most people enter Amsterdam. But even if you don’t plan a trip by train you should visit it.

Rijksmuseum

The Rijksmuseum is designed by P.J.H. Cuypers, the same architect that designed Central Station – and it shows! The monumental building itself is worth a visit, but most visitors come to see the masterpieces of the Dutch golden age: paintings by Rembrandt, Vermeer, Hals and their contemporaries. The museum has much more to offer, though!
