    Things to do

    -Local attractions. The Netherlands’ most famous football team, Ajax, is based in Bijlmer. At the impressive Amsterdam ArenA, you can drop in on the museum to learn about the club’s storied history. Bijlmer was laid out in the 60s as an enclave of Amsterdam to the southeast of the city. It was an ambitious and innovative urban plan, and you can still see many examples of utopian architecture here today, as well as fantastic newer structures, like the Bijlmer ArenA Station.

    -Canal trips. A must for first-time visitors to the city, you can embark on a cruise of Amsterdam’s historic canals in a range of vessels from Prins Hendrikkade, Rokin, Damrak and Stadhouderskade. On the way you’ll see the majestic waterfront houses, countless bridges and houseboats that make Amsterdam so distinctive. You could buy a daily ticket for the Canal Bus and simply hop on and off at the top attractions and sights.

    -Culture. Covering a range of fields, Amsterdam’s museums are some of the best in the world. The Anne Frank House on Prinsengracht preserves the rooms in which the famous diarist and her family hid for two years, as well as exhibitions on the holocaust. If you’re interested in modern architecture then the Museum of the Amsterdam School is essential. World-class art museums can be found at the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum.

    -History. Amsterdam’s historic centre follows a lay out that is several hundred years old. At the very heart of the city is the Old Centre, where you can see original medieval wooden houses at Zeedijk and Begijnhof. With the 17th Century Golden Age came the construction of the Canal ring, and with it some of Amsterdam’s most opulent homes, most of which can still be seen today.

    -Gastronomy. A rijstafel is Indonesian cuisine, involving small meat, vegetable and fish dishes served with rice. It has become an institution in Amsterdam and can be very spicy. Other international cuisines to sample include Surinamese and Chinese, at a host of snack-bars and restaurants around the Old Centre. More traditional fare comes in the shape of delicacies like raw herring, best enjoyed in season during the summer.
