Book A Bike Ride

The number one mode of transport in Amsterdam is the bicycle. The city is known for two-wheeled transport and bicycles have right of way over motor vehicles. Book yourself a bike ride at any of the bike stands and explore Amsterdam at your own pace and leisure.

Go For A Boat Ride

Known as the Venice of the north, Amsterdam is littered with canals and waterways. See the sights from the comfort of a slow and steady boat. Cruising the canals is an authentic and fun way to explore the gem of the Netherlands.

Rent A Scooter

If you’re not too keen on peddling through the streets and prefer something a bit more motorised, why not grab a Vespa scooter and zip through traffic. Most rental agents offer group discounts and scooters can be rented out for the whole day, ensuring that you take in as much of the sights and sounds as possible.

Visit The Zoo

In the middle of Amsterdam, you will find the Natura Artis Magistra. The zoo is filled with wonderful animals, but that’s not all: the Natura Artis Magistra has an aquarium and planetarium which are situated in historic buildings. From orangutan to camels, it’s all at the Natura Artis Magistra.

Walking Tours

There are many free walking tours available around Amsterdam and it’s one of the top ways to get up close and personal with the streets and canals that make up the metropolitan. On these tours, you will visit historic buildings, modern street art and everything in between. And remember, all that walking deserves a bite to eat.
