Sightseeing in Amsterdam
There are many famous Amsterdam sights, but how do you know which one to visit? No worries! Here at Hello Amsterdam we make it our business to inform you on the best Amsterdam sights. Amsterdam is filled with things to see and do, and lots of them can be reached on foot by strolling around the city center. Of course, you have the canals and beautiful architecture that are a sight on their own, but that is not all the city has to offer. Don’t forget to visit the Gerard Douplein, a cosy little square serving you any hour of the day. Have a coffee at De Wasserette, lunch on the terrace of Het Paardje, beers in student bar De Pilsvogel or a glass of wine and a fine dinner at De Wijnbar.
