A weekend in Amsterdam


Take a trip to Amsterdam over the Easter break and make the most of the four-day weekend in the cool, stylish and laid-back city. We highly recommend that you rent a bike like a local and cycle along the many canals, browse the boutiques, pick up trinkets from the canal-side markets and browse the vibrant art scene. You’re never far from a cool coffee shop to stop and take a break to people watch.

Rich with cultural history, Amsterdam has something for everyone. Architecture, museums, and galleries to rival any large city, a vibrant nightlife, traditional bars serving local beers to high-end nightclubs attracting world class DJs.

We loved the city so much and can’t wait to go back! Share with us your favourite places to visit in Amsterdam in the comments section below!
