Amsterdam is unique among the European metropolises. Compared to other world cities, Amsterdam is quite small, but it guarantees all the advantages of a metropolis - a multitude of historical sights, world-famous museums and a distinctive nightlife. But everything in a manageable size and on a small scale. Nothing is far away from each other and everything is easily accessible by public transport.
1st day arrival in Holland
Arrival at the hotel in the late afternoon.
You will stay at the 4 star Dutch Design Hotel Artemis in Amsterdam. The modern hotel is located on the south-western outskirts of Amsterdam with excellent transport links to the city centre. Bus No. 18 and tram No. 2 will take you straight to the city centre. All rooms are stylishly furnished with bath or shower/WC, telephone and TV.
2nd day Amsterdam - city tour - canal tour
In the morning you will get to know the Dutch capital Amsterdam with its picturesque canals, romantic bridges and colourful patrician houses during a guided city tour. Afterwards, you will enjoy the atmosphere from a completely different perspective during a canal trip. In the afternoon you have free time in the charming metropolis. Stroll through the enchanting old town, visit one of the top-class museums or enjoy one of the newer attractions is the A'DAM Lookout observation tower. Enjoy the wide unobstructed view from the 20th and 21st floors. Since the city centre of Amsterdam is closed to buses, you can either return to the hotel by coach after the canal trip or you can stay in the city and have to organise the return trip to the hotel yourself by public transport.
Day 3 Leisure in Amsterdam
Breakfast is plentiful and you can spend your day in Amsterdam according to your wishes. How about a little art enjoyment?
The Rijksmuseum exhibits paintings by great Dutch masters from the 17th century, such as Rembrandt and Vermeer. The Van Gogh Museum houses some of Van Gogh's most famous paintings, while the Stedelijk Museum is dedicated to contemporary art. Beer lovers should visit the Heineken Experience. During the visit you can not only learn a lot about beer but also take some samples. The colourful Amsterdam flower market is also interesting. The floating stalls are located along the Single-Gracht between Konings- and Muntplein. Those who want to have a cup of coffee and see cruise giants or other big ships should visit the terrace of the Muziekgebouw aan't IJ right next to the passenger terminal.
Day 4: Journey home
After breakfast you start your journey home.
