5 Things You Will Love About Amsterdam

5 things you will love about Amsterdam

Rocketing into my top three favourite places in the world as soon as I stepped onto Dutch soil, Amsterdam is an incredible city to explore and chill out in. Here are 5 things you will love about Amsterdam:

// It’s so easy to get around – Trains from the airport run regularly… like every 15 minutes or so! Once you arrive at Amsterdam Centraal you can either hop on a free ferry across the river IJ or get yourself a ticket for the trams that pick up right outside the station. If you’ve got tonnes of time or fancy a walk, have a wander along the beautiful streets and canals, or hire yourself a bike and you’re good to go. The city is built for cyclists first and foremost!

// They brunch like kings – The Dutch folk sure do know how to brunch and there are bags of places to choose from for your mid morning leisurely dining. The only problem you might find is that there can be a wait for tables, but places like Bakers and Roasters text you when your table is ready so you can go for a wander until then!

// Craft beer is celebrated – There are a whole bunch of bars and pubs that serve up the most vast range of craft and rare beers that I have ever seen. Our favourites were¬†Proeflokaal Arendsnest¬†and Cafe Gollem. It’s not all about the Heineken!

// You’re close to nature – Amsterdam reminded me so much of New York, including having their very own Central Park – the Vondelpark. Definitely set yourself at least an afternoon to explore Vondelpark with it’s picturesque lakes and views of the city from inside the park. We even saw parrots. Parrots.

// The street art is incredible – Make sure you schedule in some time to head to Amsterdam NOORD – there’s a free ferry running from outside Amsterdam Centraal station to NDSM Werf where you’ll find the most incredible street art, wall murals and graffiti art. Make sure you take a trip to Art City set in an abandoned ship yard.
