One of the best free things to do in Amsterdam. Grab a blanket, some wine/food and some nice friends and just hang out. Perfection on a nice sunny day for people watching.

A great park for exploring on foot or by bike - handy to get a familiarity with bikes before taking to the Amsterdam streets! A number of restaurants and bars dotted around the park, including a selection on the streets just outside the park.

Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part
of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh
Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed
museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you
need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the
Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark,
the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand
connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping
