Tips

Ga op stadswandeling door Amsterdam en leer waarom dit nog steeds een van de meest invloedrijke steden van Europa is. Wanneer je aan Amsterdam denkt, zijn er vaak andere dingen waar mensen eerder aan denken. De Wallen en coffeeshops zijn dingen die vaak bij mensen te binnen schieten. Terwijl deze natuurlijk onderdeel zijn van Amsterdam, zijn de geschiedenis en cultuur van de stad dat zeker ook. Deze stadswandeling brengt je vanaf Amsterdam Centraal Station naar het Damrak. Kijk je ogen uit op de Dam en loop langs de Nieuwe Kerk en het Koninklijk Paleis. Vervolgens loop je naar het Anne Frank Huis om daar te leren over een van Amsterdams meest beroemde verhalen, dat van Anne Frank en haar familie tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. De wandeling laat je ook zien welke sleutelrol Amsterdam speelde in Europese handel en hoe deze stad een centrale markt werd voor de westerse wereld. Loop langs het huis waar Rembrandt in zijn hoogtij dagen het grootste deel van zijn tijd doorbracht en een aantal van zijn mooiste werken creëerde, maar ook de minder mooie kant van zijn verhaal, over de achteruitgang van zijn carrière en hoe hij zijn vrouw en vier kinderen overleefde. De wandeling eindigt bij de oudste kerk van Amsterdam. Deze stadswandeling is makkelijk uit te breiden met eigen punten van interesse zoals het Van Gogh Museum, het Rijksmuseum, de Heineken Brouwerij, verschillende parken en kanalen, De Wallen en een coffeeshop waar Amsterdam immers bekend om staat.

There is a lot to see in this small city, so don't rush or you will miss the small nuances that make it great. Take a slow-paced ride through some of the hundreds of canals, visit the Tulip Museum or Artis Zoo (Holland's oldest), or just wander the smaller streets with no particular destination in mind.

Hiking

Being from Amsterdam I can state that this is a not too long hike taking you along some nicer streets as you would normally take from highlight to highlight. Especially the second part (if you walk clockwise) is nice altough the last part past the red light district will often be very crowded. But this part is about 1 km of the total hike. All in all recommended especially for young people wanting tot get a taste of the historic city.

Amsterdam is a very interesting city and this tour gives you an amazing impression of it. Don't forget to stop at 'De Bakkerswinkel', Warmoesstraat 69, for breakfast/lunch/high tea. Really good food! I visited the museum 'Onze Lieve Heer Op Solder', which was beautiful.

Amsterdam is one of the favorite cities I have ever visited. It is a city full of history, art, and culture, and this tour lets you explore all of that. The highlights during my trip were walking along the many canal streets (pretty much every street), going to the Van Gogh museum (excellent), and going to the Amsterdam History museum, where I learned a lot about how the town developed and became an integral part of European trade and world trade. There are so many great and different things to do here that you will never want to leave.
