Culture in Amsterdam
When you thing of visiting Amsterdam, cultural activities might not be high on the to-do list. Many tourists come here for something a little less deep than cultural activities in Amsterdam. A shame, really! Because Amsterdam is so much more than the party capital of Europe. A simple walk through the city already shows you the remainders of a rich history. Even the world-famous canals have their own story to tell. But not only the city centre is full of culture, even the outskirts of the city have various cultural activities to offer. Some have to do with Dutch culture, while others are centered around a sub-culture or one of the 180 different cultural backgrounds that reside in the city. There are plenty of cultural activities in Amsterdam, you just have to know where to find them.
