Amsterdam's Most Unique...

Amsterdam's Mast Unique. Famous for many reasons, the culturally rich city of Amsterdam features far more than the clichés some would use to describe it. In a bid to fill you in on some of the lesser-known attractions it has to offer, we've done some digging and unearthed a fine selection of the most intriguing things to do in this iconic Dutch capital. Veel plezier (= "have fun" in Dutch)! Method of Transport Rent your own Electric Boat See Amsterdam from a fresh perspective in these eco-friendly electrically powered vessels. Duck under bridges and admire the quirky house boats, as you slide across the pleasantly calm waters at your own pace. Attraction Drink Specialist Beer at Brouwerij 't IJ Windmill Brewery Bringing together two of Holland's most famous icons - windmills and beer, this place portrays both Dutch eccentricity and friendliness at its finest. The brewery boasts a selection of 10 unique beers that you won't find anywhere outside its doors. Take a tour, or simply drop in for a cold one. View Point Climb the Church Towers for a Bird's Eye View of the City The best way to appreciate Amsterdam's many and varying architectural styles (including Gothic, Renaissance, and Baroque to name but a few) is to visit the three church towers that loom majestically over different parts of the city. Soar to the highest points of The Westerkerk, The Zuiderkerk and De Oude Kerk for astounding views inspired by centuries of Dutch history, and let the moment take your breath away. Hang Out Spot Lounge Around the City Beaches Yes, you read correctly - Amsterdam has three stunning city beaches! Strand Zuid, Strand West and Blijberg aan Zee are the ultimate retreats from the inner city bicycle bells and boat horns. Cool down with an exotic cocktail, tuck in to some top quality food, perk your ears up for live water- side bands and soak up an atmosphere you won't forget in a hurry. Day Trip Explore the Forest If you get a taste for adventure or feel the need to breathe in some fresh air, look no further than Amsterdam's very own forest. With zip lining, canoeing, horse riding, goat farms and a deliciously inviting pancake house, this place is about as dynamic as a Van Gogh masterpiece! Dining Experience Take a Cheese-Tasting Class Affectionately nicknamed "Cheeseheads', Dutch people are just as happy sharing their delicious dairy products with you as they are eating them themselves. A cheese-tasting class provides the perfect excuse to sample some new varieties and cultivate your tastebuds. If only there'd been a class like this at school! Sporting Activity Join the Friday Night Skate A tradition that has rolled on for over 14 years, where people congregate at dusk in the Vondelpark and glide through the city's smooth streets, while trying to avoid the odd post or passer-by. This is a cost-efficient way of taking in Amsterdam's romantically lit sights at speed, while meeting new people and having a laugh (but hopefully not at your own expense!). Entertainment Listen to Live Dutch Music Found predominantly in cafés and bars in the Jordaan area, these accordion, barrel organ, synthesizer and guitar led rhythms are a blast from Amsterdam's past. If you plan to check them out, be prepared to be lured into a whole night of humming along to catchy Levenslied tunes - you might even be enticed to join in for a jig! destination Amsterdam
