Why go to Amsterdam

An addictive jumble of contrasts, you’ll find everything from early Renaissance masterpieces to eyebrow-raising erotica, whiffy cheese museums and kitsch breweries set beside windmills. Wander along sleepy canals lined with gabled houses, weave between rows of rainbow tulips at the flower market and play a terrifying game of chicken with over 800,000 bicycles.

Be captivated by the canals

Golden-age glamour echoes through the cobbled lanes and footbridges of Amsterdam’s Canal Belt.

In summer, coloured boats bob on the water, rosy-cheeked cyclists zip past at death-defying speeds and students shoot the breeze over a Heineken outside hole-in-the-wall bars.

In winter, the canals can freeze over, becoming joyous frosty ice-rinks and adding an extra dose of magic to a cheap Amsterdam break in winter or early spring. Drenched with atmosphere all year round, no wonder it’s one of Europe’s most popular destinations for a weekend break.

Get lost in a game of numbers

Home to 7,000 monuments set along 160 canals straddled by almost 1,500 bridges, Amsterdam is a gorgeous game of numbers.

With 87 museums alone, you would need dozens of Amsterdam holidays to see it all. Don’t be intimidated by the stats. Amsterdam is an endlessly walkable city with an incredibly laid-back vibe, so relax and soak up the sights at your own pace.

If you’re doing Amsterdam on the cheap, get lost beside the maze of canals, stroll around the leafy Vondelpark, gawp at Rembrandt's masterpieces in the Rijksmuseum and stifle embarrassed giggles in the adult shops of the Red Light District.

Look to a bright and edgy future

Traces of the past might be everywhere, but Amsterdam is a city striding into the future at full pelt. Packed with youthful energy, innovative projects and cutting-edge cafés, a holiday to Amsterdam is sure to inspire.

Dine at the top of a pirate radio tower, settle into a deckchair on a fake sandy beach, dance the night away inside a shipping container and explore trippy museums crammed with fluorescent art. Anything is possible in the Dutch capital.

You’ll stumble across something to delight and shock around every corner, making cheap trips to Amsterdam perfect for a shot of eyebrow-raising culture.

*ATOL (Air Travel Organiser's Licence) is a financial protection scheme for package holidays: It provides support to consumers in the event their holiday provider collapses. Booking with an ATOL holder ensures that you won't be left out of pocket and you won't be left stranded abroad. All package holidays compared using TravelSupermarket are protected by ATOL.

ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) offers similar cover for packages booked with its members. However, while ATOL predominantly covers flight-based packages, ABTA covers non-flight based holidays (such as rail and cruise) and linked travel arrangements. If you are unsure whether or not your trip is covered by ABTA, check with your provider.
