The Biking Amsterdam, Netherlands
Reviews > Europe > Netherlands > Amsterdam > The Biking Amsterdam
Biking in Amsterdam is not only a great experience, but it's also practical. There are many advantages relating about biking in Amsterdam
First of all, you can acces all areas of the city, where cars are forbidden. This makes the city much more enjoyable, eco friendly, and active. The parking in Amsterdam with cars is also an issue, but not for the bike. It is a common habit to see many bike rental centers at the Dutch capital. While you are bike riding, it's the best way experiencing Amsterdam more directly, and the city is well known for it's stunning architecture and vast background, and you can visit a lot of museums, galleries, and other important buildings. To reach every destination without a problem, the best way to do it is on bike, which is also good because it's fast and you can avoid traffic jams. Due the fact that it's a clean city and less jammed by car, the city is known to be less polluted also.
Some of the cities top interesting points you might visit are:
- Anne Frank House, nowadays a biographical museum which is dedicated to Jewish wartime diarist called Anne Frank, where she was hiding during World War II from Nazi persecution.
- Rijksmuseum, serving as Netherlands national museum of arts and history, it is one of Amsterdams most complex and astonishing architecture.
- Van Gogh Museum, is an art museum in Amsterdam inscribed to the works of Vincent Van Gogh and his peers.
- Dam Square, is the cities town square, with it's prominent buildings and frequent events makes the place an important location.
- Canals of Amsterdam, which is basically the heart of the city and the trademark of the capital, is very complex and picturesque, with it's lovely buildings and canals, makes the city an ideal destination.
If you're into nightlife, I personally could recommend some places like:
- Whiskycafe l&b, the paradise for whiskey lovers, the place itself looks very good and it also serves you every type of whiskey you want. It is located at the famous city center party square called Leidseplein.
other places you might wanna visit are: Jazz Cafe Alto, De Kroon, Sugarfactory, and mostly every club/bar in Leidseplein and Rembrandtplein
Renting a bike in Amsterdam costs roughly between 5 and 10 euros and there are bike tour guides also who can show the city more properly
