The Netherlands’ capital is a picturesque city famous for its neat system of canals and its fairy-tale-like houses with gabled façades. These were mostly built during the 17th century, a golden age for Amsterdam when trade was booming and the country enjoyed a period of peace and prosperity. The Museum District is especially popular with visitors, home to the Rijksmuseum with works by Vermeer and Rembrandt, and the famous Van Gogh Museum.
Arriving in Amsterdam
One of the most historically and culturally important cities in Europe, Amsterdam has been at the centre of trade, commerce, and the diamond industry for hundreds of years. Built on the riches of tulip bulbs, which were at one time quite literally worth their weight in gold, its fabulous merchants’ houses and meandering streets have hardly changed since the 1800s. However, alongside its cobbled streets and those iconic canals is a 21st century financial and banking centre of international importance. As well as millions of tourists, the city welcomes hundreds of thousands of business travellers every year, making this one of the busiest and most vibrant cities in Europe.
Fly to Amsterdam with Qatar Airways and you’ll discover a city of coffee shops and art galleries, luxury shopping and relaxing canal cruises, making this an ideal destination all year round. Visit in the winter when the canals freeze over and you’ll even be able to drink your morning coffee on the frozen surface of the central canals – a genuinely unique experience.
Amsterdam is full of great tourist attractions, from superb art galleries and museums to the medieval splendour of the city centre. You’ll see very few high-rises or skyscrapers in old Amsterdam, as for centuries no building could be taller than the highest church. Dam Square is the very heart of the Old Centre, and is surrounded by merchant’s houses and canals. The two remaining medieval houses can be found at Zeedijk 1, and Begijnhof 34, which is the oldest house in Amsterdam. It’s also worth checking out the lesser known squares of Spui and Nieuwmarkt too.
If you want to explore the city’s museums and art galleries, then head to the south quarter and the city’s Museum District. Top of the list should be a trip to the Van Gogh Museum, which has the largest collection of the artist’s pictures in the world. Book your ticket online and you can avoid the queues. A great way to see as many museums as you can on a budget is to buy a Museum Card, which is valid for a year and is accepted at over 400 museums across the country.
If you love cinema then the EYE Film Institute offers a restaurant, film museum and cinema, as well as a riverside café with great views. This modern building is part of the new development of Amsterdam, bringing a fresh perspective and some real energy into the heart of this historic city.
