Hollands most centrally located city, has so many faces that it will leave you flabbergasted. The city canals cleave the centre and contribute to the specific character of the inner town. Along the canals, you'll find packed terraces in the summertime. Visit the Hoog Catharijne, the biggest indoor shopping centre. See the museumquarter, a collective of six impressive museums. If you don't know where to start, just go to the Domplein, take a deep breath and climb the 465 steps of the Netherlands' highest tower and observe Utrecht's hustle and bustle.
Boat trips around the largest port in the world, the famous cube houses, the Imax Waterstad Theatre and the Euromast are a must for sightseeing. On Saturdays there are 3 markets, the one in the city centre is largest in Holland with over 500 stalls. A visit to O'Sheas Irish Pub and The American Dream Cafe is highly recommended.
There's something for everyone in Amsterdam; history, culture, museums and galleries, diamonds, canals and a nightlife to suit all tastes. World famous for its laid back lifestyle, it offers the visitor independence and versatility and is the ideal destination for a weekend break.
