Nine Reasons To Visit Amsterdam That Don’t Involve Smoking Pot And One That Does
“Some tourists think Amsterdam is a city of sin, but in truth it is a city of freedom. And in freedom, most people find sin.” John Green
Amsterdam is probably the best place to visit a coffee shop since this is perfectly legal.You are allowed to buy other drugs as well, but you will have to find someone on the street. If you’re not sure whether a pill you bought is good, you can send it to the government for free and they will test it for you and send it back.
The Diary Of Anne Frank was the most important book I have ever read. It was how I learned about the holocaust and maybe even love. It hit me hard. There are long queues for The Anne Frank House if you don’t get advance tickets. . Get your tickets online before you go. It is a bucket list things for me.
Photos of rainbow carpeted flower fields and bunches of tulips are the iconic symbol of the Netherlands. A short ride away from Amsterdam in Lisse is the Keukenhof Gardens. From March to May tourists, visit this beautiful flower park. I might catch a few windmills on the way.
Amsterdam is a pioneer in green and eco-friendly cities. it is listed as one of the fifteen safest cities in the world.
Watch out for cyclists. The city is famous for bikes. It is a healthy and easy way to see the city.
The Dutch love their street markets. Every day of the week you will find vendors setting up stalls somewhere in the city. There are different markets for antiques, art, produce, fashion and vintage. There is something for everyone at Amersterdam’s markets.
Gouda and Edam are among my many favorite cheeses. There are five traditional cheese markets in the Netherlands. I’m planning to go to one.
Canals are everywhere. Getting around can be a bit confusing because everything sort of looks the same. ( especially after you visit the coffee shops) . It gives the city a unique and beautiful atmosphere.
Amsterdam’s most famous and unique tourist site is the red light district. Whatever your opinion of women on sale in windows, you won’t see it anywhere else. Pictures are forbidden and your camera will be confiscated if it is seen.
There are plenty of museums to check out as well. The Van Gogh museum has permanent queues in front of it, to see some beautiful paintings by the most famous Dutch artist of all time – even if he wasn’t well known at all in his lifetime. The “Potato Eaters” is there. The Rijksmuseum is huge and needs several hours to go through and has many paintings by Vermeer and Rembrandt.
Thanks for the info. I plan to go again next year.
I’ve yet to visit Amsterdam (besides many layovers at the airport), but a longer stay is definitely in the books now… Great post.
Loving Amsterdam since I’m not getting paid, I write when I return.
