Enjoy Amsterdam, Be Safe.

Welcome to Amsterdam

Amsterdam, the Dutch capital, is known for the artistic heritage, the extensive canal network and the narrow gable houses, a legacy from the Golden Age. In the Museum Quarter are the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum with works by Rembrandt and Vermeer, and the Stedelijk Museum with modern art. Cycling is inextricably linked to the character of the city and there are many cycle paths.
