The Best Tourist Attractions to Experience in Amsterdam

When it comes to tourist spots, Amsterdam will never disappoint. But here are the top attractions that you should experience on your visit to the city:

The Anne Frank Museum

Located on the Prinsengracht, the Anne Frank Museum is dedicated to one of the most popular Holocaust victims in the world. In the same home where Anne and her family hid during World War II, Anne wrote a diary that became an international bestseller after she died at the young age of 15.

Much of this home was kept the way it was when Anne lived in it; so stepping inside would easily feel like being brought back to one of the most tragic periods in history.

Van Gogh Museum

If you’ve been moved by Van Gogh’s art, you have to visit the Van Gogh Museum to learn more about his life through the world’s largest collection of his work—from little-known pieces to his most famous paintings. Going through the artist’s masterpieces, you will see how his work developed over the years.

You will also see paintings by Toulouse-Lautrec, Bernard, Monet and Gauguin in this museum.

The Jordaan

What was once a workers’ quarter is now Amsterdam’s most popular neighborhood that is packed with galleries, markets, garden courtyards, eateries, boutiques, and homes. The Jordaan is the perfect place to take that afternoon stroll and explore its beautiful streets.

Aside from the Anne Frank Museum, you can also visit the Woonboots Museum dedicated to houseboats. And if you’re visiting on the weekend, head to Lindengracht early in the morning to shop for fresh produce, flowers, local crafts and all the other treasures you can find in its open-air market.

The Rijksmuseum

Amsterdam’s most important art repository is home to more than seven million works of art and antiquities that you’ll never find anywhere else in the world. The Rijksmuseum has 250 rooms filled with more than 5,000 important paintings, a library with more than 35,000 books and manuscripts and numerous displays featuring the evolution of art and culture in the Netherlands.

Kalverstraat and Vlooienmarkt

If there are two places in Amsterdam to visit for some real shopping, it has to be Kalverstraat and Vlooienmarkt. Kalverstraat is filled with boutiques, perfumeries, restaurants, cafes, and galleries while Vlooienmarkt is the city’s famous flea market since 1886.

You can also visit the Flower Market of Amsterdam for some of its beautiful blooms and Muntplein where you’ll also find some great stores to shop in.
