Trip Report Amsterdam - My Favorite Things!

Jump to last reply

Been going to Amsterdam annually for decades and here are some of my favorite things that to me make Amsterdam one of the world's most intriguing and captivating and gorgeous cities!

THE CANALS

They call Amsterdam the Venice of the North for good reason - the old city center is ringed by stately canals lined by stately facades of canal townhouses - and these are typically only facades with everything behind having been demolished - but a stroll along any of the main canals like Prinsengracht or Kaisersgracht especially is just so so romantic.

THE FREE FERRIES ACROSS THE HARBOR

One of my favorite things to do is to hop the free pedestrian and bicycle ferries that leave from behind the main train station and cross the busy harbor - from the other side of the water you get a neat view of Amsterdam - a very different view - a neat neat view! And you can see the rush of bikes loading and unloading - zillions of bikes ridden by all types of folks, from old grannies to hip teens.

VONDEL PARK

I just love strolling thru Vondel Park at any time of the year - not only a lovely park but great people watching to boot. In summer lots of folks about - check out the Melk Huis (sp) outdoor tea garden!
