Welcome to Amsterdam – the city of art, canals and bicycles. This city has a certain charm (we’re sure there’s a Dutch word for it). Whether it’s art, cozy cafes or romantic strolls you’re looking for, you’re sure to find it here.
The city’s just about to wake up. Ready to go?
Get comfortable on your sofa … we’re about to start the tour to the heart of the city.
Dutch is spoken by around 24 million people as a first language and 5 million people as a second language, constituting the majority of people in the Netherlands and Belgium (as one of three official languages).
It’s the native language of Suriname where it also holds an official status, as it does in Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten.
Ready for a bit of Dutch?
The Dutch love herring, which they call Hollandse Nieuwe or ‘New Dutch herring’. It’s usually eaten raw on a bun or as a snack with some chopped onions and pickles. Tasty and healthy … what more could you ask for?!
A busy day calls for a relaxing evening.
Mix a drink, snack on something heavenly and immerse yourself in a bit of Dutch culture.
Genever has a long tradition in Amsterdam, and though it’s been seen as something an older generation might enjoy, it’s been making something of a comeback. Try mixing it yourself and create a fresh “Fast Running Break” cocktail.
The Dutch culture and history is so rich, that you’ll find yourself in need of time to take it all in.
