Amsterdam Travel Guide

Many know that there are more bikes than people in Amsterdam, but it's a lesser-known fact that there are more museums per capita in Amsterdam than any other city in the world. That's a whole lot of culture. Thanks to Amsterdam's compact size you can easily navigate your way through history and the canals from the Rijksmuseum and Rembrandthuis to the Anne Frank House on two wheels, on foot or by public transport. That said, there is much more to culture in Amsterdam than just museums – which its thriving art, design and theatre scenes go a long way to prove.
