Amsterdam, Venice of the North.
Even though Amsterdam started as a small fishing village, it developed into one of the World’s most important port cities during the Dutch Golden age.
Famous sights to see in Amsterdam include the Anne Frank House Museum where Anne wrote her diary in World War II, De Nieuwe Kerk, famous for celebrating treasures from other countries, the wonderful Madame Tussauds, The Heineken Experience and the Floating Flower Market – the most famous flower market in Holland. A coach to Amsterdam also offers the opportunity to visit less known sites such as De Gooyer windmill, previously used for grinding grain for a brewery, Begijnhof, a calm and quiet place built as a monastic community full of history. There is also Oude Kirk, the oldest building in Amsterdam, located in a lively neighbourhood.
The city also has lots of art and culture for visitors to enjoy on a weekend coach break. Its highlights include the Van Gogh Museum with the most paintings by the artist of any place in the World, the Rijksmuseum with the World famous Night Watch of Rembrandt, and the Hermitage Amsterdam showcasing Russian art, history and culture.
All of this is only a couple of hours away, so why not start your city break in the Netherlands by booking a coach to Amsterdam?
