I believe you have heard of Amsterdam and it is definitely a city you should visit if you are planning for a vacation. While Amsterdam is not a large city, getting acquainted with it before you make a trip to Amsterdam is worth while, such as the culture, transportation system, hotels etc.. Getting information on the best way to travel there and how to move around the city will prepared you well for the trip.

Amsterdam is as beautiful as it is historical and memorable for those who have visited it. With parts of the city dating back hundreds of years, this cultural city has plenty to offer the visitors it receives year after year.

Lots of people visit Dam Square every day for one reason or another. This central meeting point often has carnivals and other entertainment throughout the year. As it's in the middle of tourist town, expect the rides you want to go on to be full or the stalls you want to get close to busy.

Whether your visiting th Albert Cuypmarkt or the Westermarkt, be sure to pick up a bargain at these busy and bustling market places. The Westermarkt is located just at the end of the Raddhuisstraat behind Dam Square. While the Albert Cuypmarkt can be found close to the Sarphatipark in the south of the city and east of Vondelpark. These traditional style markets let you try Dutch delicacies and pick up a shopping bargain.

More than a million people a year come to see the house made famous by the ordeals of Anne Frank's family who hid from the Nazis here during the Second World War. The home is in it's original state, and is too small for any guided tours. Visitors can explore the house along with guidebooks instead.

One of the things that people who go to Amsterdam delight in, no matter what time of year they make their sojourn, is the wonderful Dutch cuisine that is as world-renowned, as are many other aspects of the Netherlands experience. There are many famous, exotic and wonderful restaurants throughout the city that not only feature delicious Dutch dishes, but also many other cuisines that are influenced by the many cultures and peoples that inhabit this 'melting-pot' city.

Log on to and you'll find everything that you need for Amsterdam city breaks.
