It seems that Amsterdam has it all – culture, history, beauty, and freedom. The Netherlands’ capital hardly ever runs out of fun activities for its visitors. If you’re planning to have a holiday in Amsterdam, here are a couple of things that you can do in your stay. Once you’ve found some great accommodation, such as with Hotels 4 u, you’ll need to plan how to spend your time. Here are our suggestions:

 1. Explore the history: 

Go to museums before you explore anywhere else. Get to know Amsterdam through its history and see how it grew through the ages. You should go to Old Town to fully experience the heart of Amsterdam. Besides, this is the central bulk of tourism in Amsterdam, so it’s natural that you should go there.The Amsterdam Museum provides you with everything you need to know about the history of the city. There are guided tours in the museum and signing up for one would make it easier for you to explore the place. The tours have different themes and there’s even one that is exclusive for children. There is also an audio tour for those you wish to fly solo. You should also visit the Anne Frank Museum, the very house of which Anne Frank and her family stayed in hiding for two years during World War II.

2. See some art Amsterdam:

It has an amazing collection of art pieces, both old and contemporary. Head to the Museum Quarter and you can find three famous museums: the Stedelijk Museum of Modern Art, Van Gogh Museum, and Rijks museum. If you’re looking forward to see something modern, go to Stedelijk and Van Gogh. The former displays works of famous modern artists like Picasso and Matisse. The latter, of course, houses Van Gogh’s art pieces although the other works of artists, who are influenced by Gogh, are being displayed there as well.

3. Sightseeing in Jordaan: 

Jordaan is this place in Amsterdam where you can just walk around and admire the view. Your surroundings would be old but beautiful buildings, canals, little bridges, trees and narrow alleyways. It’s like a postcard. There are cafes in the area and galleries, too. You could say that Jordaan is a hub for artists because many of them live in the area. You could also say that Jordaan is an upper class neighbourhood because it is known to be one of Amsterdam’s most pricey residential areas.4. Relax at parks, dine well and drink well Vondelpark is Amsterdam’s most famous parks. After spending a day at the Museum Quarter, you can immediately walk to Vondelpark. There are other parks in Amsterdam as well and you can spend some time there, skating and cycling.Restaurants, cafe and pubs are all over the city and finding one is not a problem. Some are quite expensive – posh, fine dining places. But if you explore Amsterdam really well, there are some affordable places, too.5. Go to the Red Light DistrictThis is one of the reasons why Amsterdam is a place of freedom. The Red Light District has a notorious reputation for open and legal prostitution, which could be shocking and amusing at the same time. Some “coffee shops” in the district are known to be selling marijuana, joints and space cakes. One night of harmless fun, okay maybe a weekend, could be one of the most exhilarating and memorable moments of your life. It’s a matter of perception really – the Red Light District is a fun place but if you don’t find it so, then you stay away. Simple as that.Once as you’ve found your Amsterdam hotel deals, all you have left is to start planning your time there. With so many options to choose from, you wont be bored in the lively city that is Amsterdam!
