AMSTERDAM

Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, is a city one of a kind. City of Van Gogh and Anne Frank, of design, of bicycles, of tulips, of the 160 kilometers of canals that cross it. Despite being one of the ten most visited cities in Europe, Amsterdam remains a lively capital but, at the same time, far from the frenzy of the big cities.

AMSTERDAM IDENTITY CARD

Amsterdam is the capital and most populous city of the Netherlands. Amsterdam is commonly referred to as the “Venice of the North”, attributed by the large number of canals that form a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Amsterdam’s best time is between April and May or September and November – right before or directly after the summertime high tourist season. But, if you do not mind the cold winter temperatures, you can give Amsterdam a chance during winter months, when the prices are lower.

HOW TO REACH AMSTERDAM

Schiphol International Airport is one of the most crucial European airports, and it is situated 15 kilometers southwest of the capital. It is well connected to various cities in the world by regular flights. The national carrier for the Netherlands is KLM, but many other airlines operate from here, such as Air France, British Airways, Emirates, Lufthansa, Singapore Airlines, and US Airways. Amsterdam also enjoys excellent rail connectivity with most other European cities (for example, in Germany, France, Poland, and Denmark).
