What Amsterdam (AMS) has to offer

Your flight to Amsterdam, heart of Holland

If you have to come up with three clichés about the Netherlands, it is a sure bet you come up with tulips, windmills and cheese. These are actually true, but there is so much more to explore in Amsterdam, but it is not only the quaint houses and the canals that gave the city its nickname “Venice of the North”. There is certain relaxed and creative atmosphere about the city that you will find nowhere else.

Amsterdam: arts, culture and a famous red light district

Most iconic are the famous canals, called “grachten” in Dutch that had once helped the traders to ship their wares between their storage houses and the harbour. In the 17th century the city had its heyday and the wealthy merchants used their wealth to build beautiful houses and get their portraits painted by Rembrandt. Some of his finest work, including the iconic “Night Watch”, is on display in the Rijksmuseum. The mighty ships of the Dutch East Indian Company also brought sailors from all over the world who were looking for entertainment. This way the famous red light district of Amsterdam came to be, which today is a tourist attraction all by itself. It is also the oldest existing part of Amsterdam and has the oldest church of the city from 1306 at its heart, conveniently called the Old Church. You will also find a museum that explains the history of the district.

Moving at a relaxed pace through Amsterdam

The inner city is perfect for bicyles and most inhabitants of Amsterdam use this convenient way to get around. Many of the small bridges over the canals are too small for cars, so riding the bicycle may actually be the fastest way to get around as well. Even more relaxed is a boat tour along the canals, letting the quaint slim houses and the houseboats glide by. Visit the famous Bloemenmarkt, the flower market. It is actually a market floating on the water, the flower vendors sell their fragrant wares from boats. The Van Gogh Museum and the Anne Frank House are on the must-see list for every visitor. To fulfil you cliché hunting, go to the Cheese Museum and get a professionally guided tasting in one of the great cheese shops. For windmills you have to make a trip to the outskirts of Amsterdam, but here they stand in abundance. They were not used to grind wheat but for pumping the water out of the ground that lies below sea level. Most famous is the nightlife of Amsterdam, thousands of bars, clubs and coffee shops provide entertainment all night long. Have fun with your Lufthansa flight to Amsterdam!
