Amsterdam is not only the financial and business centre of the Netherlands, but also the cosmopolitan capital city. Nicknamed the Venice of the North because of the canals which network the city, this is perhaps the most colourful part of the Netherlands which, despite the hordes of tourists, has managed to capture some of its original Dutch charms.

Enjoy a stroll beside the canals or why not visit the city in true Dutch style by hiring a bicycle and be sure to see some of the things Amsterdam is renowned for such as its old buildings, the red-light district, the cobbled streets and the famous coffee shops.
