Tulips from Amsterdam, and other fresh flowers and plants, are sold at the Flower Market (Bloemenmarkt) alongside the Singel canal. You do not have to buy anything; the main attractions are the highly picturesque barges transformed into floating greenhouses. The market is open daily. The popular flea and antiques markets at Waterlooplein and Albert Cuypstraat are ideal places to spend an hour or two searching for bargains amongst the second-hand clothes, bric-a-brac and antique stalls. These markets are open daily, closed Sunday.
De Negen Straatjes ('The Nine Little Streets')
With its picturesque location, this shopping district has an original and diverse selection of stores. Walking along the hand-laid brickwork lanes, you'll see designer boutiques, vintage stores, specialty shops and cozy cafés.
Anne Frank House, Prinsengracht 263
Most students are familiar with the diaries of the 13-year old girl who hid in this house for two years with her family and friends. They were betrayed to the Nazis and sent to concentration camps in 1944. This fascinating tour includes not only the actual secret passage to the hiding place but also a stirring exhibition on the Holocaust in general. Open daily, with extended summer hours.
Rijksmuseum, Stadhouderskade 42
The Netherlands’ National Museum boasts an enormous collection of fifteenth to seventeenth century paintings. It also features departments of applied arts, sculpture, Dutch history, and art from all over the world, especially from Holland’s former colonies. Immerse yourself in Rembrandts, Rubens and Vermeers, before moving on to the Van Gogh Museum. It contains the world’s most definitive collection of paintings and drawings by Vincent Van Gogh. Both museums are open daily.
Museum Amstelkring, Oudezijds Voorburgwal 40
This 17th century merchant's home is the only remaining schuilkerken (clandestine church), dating back to the Reformation when open practice of other religions was prohibited. The attic of this building was secretly converted into a chapel and was a haven for Catholics looking to worship.
This bustling square lies at the very heart of the city, flanked on one side by the impressive Royal Palace and the fifteenth century Nieuwe Kerk on the other. The square serves as a popular meeting place for visitors and locals alike. Street artists and musicians provide the entertainment, and sidewalk cafes the seating. At the south end of the street starts Kalverstraat, Amsterdam’s busiest pedestrian district and premier shopping street.
One of the best known outdoor spaces, Vondelpark is popular with walkers, runners, cyclists and horse-riders. Famous for its over 120 different types of trees, the park is perfect for a quiet stroll, a laze by the lake, or for enjoying one of the free concerts held here during the summer months. The park is open daily from dawn to dusk. It is within easy walking distance from the Rijksmuseum.
This is a great, fresh Flemish fries chain. Manneke Pis received the price: Best fries of the Netherlands. The stand is located in the centre of Amsterdam, nearby the Central Station: Damrak 41
