When to visit - what to see

Amsterdam has its charm throughout the seasons.

Daily Markets: (not Sundays) The Flower Market and the Albert Cuyp street market and the Flea Market at Waterlooplein.

Saturday Market: The Farmer’s Market on the Square in front of the Northern Church – MUST SEE! Walk back along the Prinsengracht and visit the “9 STREETS”, the small streets linking the 3 main canals. Filled with unusual shops, boutiques and cafés.

Monday Market: Textiles at the Square in front of the Northern Church.

Amsterdam has many museums including the Rijks, Van Gogh, van Loon, Willet Holthuysen, Jewish Historical, Hermitage and Amsterdam Historical Museum.

Visit the Shipping Museum (Scheepvaartmuseum) which always has interesting exhibitions and NEMO, the new Science and Technology Museum built on the harbour where you can snack on the roof with incredible views over the city.

Visit the Anne Frank House and Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum, the Hortus Botanicus and the Zoo.

Take the ferry from the Central Station across the water, where you will find yourself in an authentic Dutch village. Here you can walk along the dike and stop for a drink and a bite in the very old cafe before taking the short sail back.
