It is said that there are over 50 museums in Amsterdam, Netherlands; obviously, some, like the Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum are much more popular with the visitors from outside than the others. However, the city’s attractions don’t start and end with the museums alone.
History and Culture
The Dutch take pride in their past and unique culture. If you choose to visit the Dam Square in Amsterdam, you will understand why. It is right in the center of the city and is not any beautiful object to see; however, the sheer historical importance and a bit of Dutch culture attached to the dam is preserved and showcased here. The canals and windmills are another set of attraction as far as Amsterdam is concerned. And to see these you need not get out of the city even. You can take a cruise in the canals and add the Zoo, which is also within the city limits to your list of places to visit in Amsterdam.
There are also hostels located near city centre, central station, dam square and vondelpark.
