Windmills, Quirky Museums, and Canal-Side Cafés: A Self-Guided Exploration of the Dutch Capital
Amsterdam, the canal-laced capital of the Netherlands, at once manages to be progressive and old-fashioned. For years, taboo-seeking travelers have descended upon the city to visit its distinctive “coffee shops” and red-light district. But just as many come for its cultural attractions and world-class museums, such as the Rijksmuseum, home to a vast collection of Dutch art. Others venture here for the country scenery—centuries-old windmills and floating houseboats—as well as the fact that bicycles outnumber cars here during rush-hour traffic.
Amsterdam seems to have something for everyone, so it’s appropriate that this four-day Getaway from Great Value Vacations leaves the itinerary open for each traveler to customize their trip. Roundtrip airfare from New York City (JFK) is included in the package, as is a four-night stay at Barbizon Palace, a hotel located right next to the central railway station in the city center. Click here for an overview of the trip and a list of Great Value Vacations’ recommended activities.
In addition to those suggested destinations, some other Amsterdam highlights include the Torture Museum, dubbed one of the World’s Strangest Museums by Travel + Leisure. You can catch a contemporary dance performance at the Muziektheater or catch a tram to the easily accessible Brouwerij 't IJ. This 18th-century windmill has been converted into a microbrewery where you can sip Belgian-style beer in a small pub while watching the stainless-steel brewing system through the windows. Follow the suggestions from the Faces of Holland or click here for a comprehensive list of highlights.
