Amsterdam

Went to Amsterdam in 2012.

Some but not all of the things I did are below, make sure to take the time to walk around the city, canals and the parks as well:

  • Anne Frank House – Famous but too famous as you end up trudging along in one long line throughout unable to appreciate it and in my case potentially near people who’d had too much pot. There is an app that let’s you explore Anne’s Amsterdam. I only used it briefly but may be a more engaging overall experience.
  • Rijksmuseum – Still undergoing its renovation when I was there so there was not as much to see (although that was advantageous in not having to spend as long there)
  • Amsterdam Museum – Find out about the city, its history and people. Definitely worth it.
  • Van Gogh Museum – Well known and very popular and I didn’t go as the queue was massive
  • Dutch Resistance Museum – Interesting and a museum devoted to resistance during WW2 was a topic I hadn’t seen explored in other places
  • Rembrandt House – About Rembrandt, enough said right?
  • Royal Palace Amsterdam – Very cool building to explore, it’s city centre and you should check it out

Probably did a few other things but may have forgotten! There are plenty of other things to see and do in Amsterdam as well.
