A beautiful city with ancient architecture, historic canals, narrow winding streets, and picturesque bridges, Amsterdam caters to a wide range of travelers. Whether you’re a laidback canal-life seeker, an art and culture enthusiast, a museum lover, or a fan of al-fresco dining and picnic lunches, the city offers something for everyone. Any time is a good time to visit Amsterdam. To avoid peak tourist season, plan your visit from April – May or September – October. To enjoy the world-famous tulip season and enjoy breathtaking, colorful sights, visit between mid-March – early May. In summer, from June – August, enjoy numerous festivals, picnics in the park, outdoor dining, and sunbathing on the sandy beaches. This is the peak tourist season, so expect hotel rates to be higher. If you don’t mind the cool, crisp winters, and are looking for attractive deals and bargains, plan a winter trip between December – March (excluding the weeks around Christmas and New Year).

The bus stops at the airport are located right outside Schiphol Plaza. There are city and regional bus lines, paid shuttles, as well as courtesy shuttles that hotels in the area provide to pick up and drop off their guests. You can ride the Amsterdam Airport Express Bus #197 that departs every 10 minutes and reaches Leidseplein in 35 – 40 minutes. The fare is €5.00 EUR.

How to get around in Amsterdam?

One of the most exciting ways to explore Amsterdam is by hiring a bike and cycling around the neighborhoods. Bike rentals start at approximately €15.00 EUR per day. If possible, avoid driving within the city. Parking is scarce and there are several one-way and narrow streets that are tedious to navigate. If you don’t wish to cycle or walk, it’s better to rely on Amsterdam’s vast public transport network. GVB operates the city’s public buses, trams and ferries on a time-based ticketing system. While a GVB 1-hour day ticket costs €2.90 EUR, a GVB day ticket costs €7.50 EUR. These tickets allow unlimited day and night travel across all GVB routes, regardless of transfers and distance covered. For a scenic way to explore the city, try the water taxis. GVB ferries provide a free connection to pedestrians, cyclists, and mopeds wanting to go across River IJ. All the other ferry routes are priced according to the GVB time-based ticketing system.
