What to see and do
Amsterdam is a massive city which is made up of a number of districts. The old centre is by far the most visited area thanks to its canals, traditional medieval architecture and coffee shops, as well as the impressive Royal Palace. The 17th century UNESCO World Heritage Canal Ring that surrounds the old centre houses phenomenal architecture and is the epicentre of Amsterdam’s nightlife.
Locals love to spend sunny days sipping wine at Vondelpark, and visitors should follow suit. Take advantage of campingvan hires to visit other lovely parks in the leafy Plantage district, home to the Artis Royal Zoo. Of course, no visit to Amsterdam is complete without taking in the sobering history at the Anne Frank House or checking out the Dutch masterpieces housed with the Rijksmuseum.
