What to do around Amsterdam. In 60 seconds. Amsterdam is a city for explorers. And yes, it’s colourful! Expand your horizons and cycle out of the centre. Where was it…?! Take a walk along a snake to inspiring old shipyards and chill out in industrial surroundings. The Dutch love sports on the water. Oh yeah! Dit is de gek! Visit stunning castles and eye-catching museums and much more! Some tours make a difference, some are picture-perfect and some are very cheesy! And very Dutch! The usual stuff can be very nice but seeing the bigger picture is even more rewarding in Amsterdam.
