Amsterdam is known as being one of the most watery cities in the world. Its canals and harbours fill a full quarter of her surface. Its waterways have always been its essence and its source of wealth.
This city is known as “The Venice of the North” because of the number of canals it has. And thus, Amsterdam tourism trip is not done without a boat cruise on these well-known attractions in Amsterdam. A canal tour can be both charming and relaxing by day and enchanting and romantic when the sun goes down because of the houses and bridges are illuminated.
When it comes to nightlife and clubbing, Rembrandtplein is one of the busiest squares in the city. Formally a butter and dairy market, Rembrandtplein has long left its farm friendly origins behind and these days you are far more likely to find yourself appreciating a Cappuccino on the terrace of a café than buying milk from a farmer.
Albert Cuyp Market
The prices at this popular market are among the cheapest in Amsterdam. The market began trading in 1904, now over 300 stalls are lining both sides of the Albert Cuyp Street in the neighbourhood of De Pijp. The Stalls sell everything from fruit, vegetables, fish and spices to clothes, cheese, cosmetics and bedding. This market gets really crowded on a sunny day and Saturdays.
