"The city is not THAT big..." Cycling Tip by dreamworld

Cycling, Amsterdam: 31 reviews and 74 photos


Favorite thing: The city is not THAT big comparing to other capitals in Europe, Amsterdam has a population of roughly 900000 and it's easy to walk around downtown. Still the 'official' (so much known) way of moving in the city would be with a bicycle since everything has been done for that. A boat tour on the numerous channels is also something worth to do.
Apart the famous 'Red Light district' (entertainment) area, there's plenty of historic sites/museums/galleries to see, check a local website for details.
I would recommend an average stay of 3 nights/days to have a basic look at the city. Outside the city, some excursions can be done, I especially recommend a place called Koekenhof (?) where thousands of flowers are cultivated in a beautiful garden.
