Where To Eat
You can definitely enjoy a culinary journey in Amsterdam, so for a truly elegant dining experience, be sure to visit De Silveren Spiegel (translated as the Silver Mirror). The restaurant offers you a true taste of Dutch cuisine, accompanied by an impressive wine list – there are about 225 selections on it! They have a tasting menu as well as an à la carte one, so you can enjoy a little of everything.
Or, perhaps you’re looking for a great breakfast place? Omelegg – De Pijp has some of the tastiest dishes around… and everyone knows it. They serve breakfast, brunch and lunch all day, and to make things even more exciting for patrons, they come up with a special Omelette every week… how cool is that? The best way to start off your day is with a visit to Omlegg, don’t you agree?
What to Do
Amsterdam is known as the “Venice of the North” because of the many canals that run through the city… so what better way to see the city than by boat? Yes, you can enjoy a guided boat tour with your loved ones during the day or at night – candlelight, food and wine… sounds perfect! Alternatively, a bike ride through the city is just as magical and is one of the best ways to get around.
Tulips are a lovely representation of Amsterdam’s culture so why not take a trip to the magnificent tulip fields in the Bollenstreek? You can take in the colourful surroundings and enjoy a little open country air – picnic, anyone?
Points of Interest
Before you leave Amsterdam, you simply must visit the Van Gogh Museum… it features many of his paintings, drawings and letters. Another historic place to visit is Anne Frank House, which is where she took refuge for two years with her family. Looking to do some shopping? Check out De Negen Straatjes (The Nine Streets), where you’ll find everything from vintage stores to boutiques and more. The floating flower market on the Singel and the Albert Cuyp Market are also worth a visit.
