Make an apartment in North Amsterdam your home away from home

With HomeAway it’s easy to pick the North Amsterdam holiday home that suits your taste and plans. Separated from the rest of the city by the River Ij, North Amsterdam holiday apartments are in a part of the city with a peaceful, residential flavour, just on the edge of the Waterland countryside. This makes it perfect for families, or anyone who wants a bit more room to relax while still being in touch with the city’s main sights and attractions. Apartments in North Amsterdam are geared towards modern tourists, with conveniences like Internet and satellite TV.

Things to do

-Bike rides. North Amsterdam is right next to a large man-made rural landscape made up of polders. These are farms below sea level, but protected from the water by embankments known as dikes. On a gentle bike ride here you can really appreciate the Dutch ingenuity and the historic battle against the elements, all the while admiring the large fields, farmsteads and pastures.

-Sightseeing. With a massive historic centre, Amsterdam boasts a wealth of churches, synagogues, historic houses, warehouses and even windmills in former rural areas long absorbed by the city. To see how the Dutch Golden Age transformed Amsterdam you could make for the impressive Canal Ring – on the main canals here you’ll see prestigious 17th Century Dutch homes in charming waterfront settings.

-Museums. A poignant but fascinating attraction in the Canal Ring is the Anne Frank House, which details the time the famous diarist spent here hiding from the Nazis. The Museum Quarter in Amsterdam South is home to two of the most prestigious art attractions in the world. There’s the Rijksmuseum, which is best known for its collection of works by Dutch Masters, and the Van Gogh Museum, devoted to the famous post-impressionist.

-Canal tours. Top of the list of things to do in Amsterdam is a cruise on its historic canals. The Canal Ring is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and on a tour you’ll get the best view of the beautiful stately homes that line the waterfront, beautifully decorated houseboats, as well as sights like the Dutch East Indies Company ship.

-Cuisine. If you’d like to find out more about local produce you could visit attractions like the Reypenaer Cheese Tasting Room, which is set in an historic warehouse and offers tasting sessions held by expert tasters. At the countless restaurants in Amsterdam you can try traditional specialities like stamppot (mashed potato, meat and veg), or something more exotic like Indonesian or Surinamese cuisine.

Weather in North Amsterdam

Amsterdam has an oceanic climate, which makes for temperate weather throughout the year. If you stay at North Amsterdam holiday accommodation in the summer then you can pack for moderately warm conditions – temperatures that normally rise to about 23 degrees by day. Autumn weather is mild and damp here, while winters are cool, but without frosts, due to the presence of large expanses of water around Amsterdam. During the day in December temperatures will normally peak at four or five degrees.

Travel to Olot

Schiphol (AMS) is the airport to use if you’re flying to Amsterdam from abroad. Given that it’s one of the largest and busiest air travel destinations in Europe there’s no shortage of routes from the UK. On arrival, you can drive to North Amsterdam using the A4 and A10, for a journey that shouldn’t take more than half an hour. If you’re using public transport to get to your holiday home in North Amsterdam then you could get a bus or train to Central Station, and then board a GVB ferry, one of which runs at all hours of the day and night.

                                                      This was our first trip to Amsterdam, and we were quite excited at the thought of staying on a houseboat, and I must admit, it was a great choice. The boat was amply spacious enough for our party of four, and was very warm and welcoming. Sander greeted us on arrival, gave a guided tour of the boat and plenty of useful information about Amsterdam. The accommodation was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need, and was immaculately clean. The location of the boat was perfect, just a short walk from the ferry, which ran very frequently. The ferry service was excellent and we never had to wait for a boat to arrive, and within a few minutes you were across the river and in the heart of Amsterdam. In the local vicinity we came upon a new café/bakery on 113 Mosveld called de Bakkerszonen that we could definitely recommend. The welcome from the staff was great and the food was superb. The selection of cakes, bread and pastries to take away was fantastic. We all agreed we would definitely recommend this accommodation.

                                                      Pretty cottage with lovely hosts!

                                                      The cottage itself was kept amazingly and was exactly what we were looking for our break away! The host Margot was lovely and welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. The location of the property is secluded but is only a short walk away from the bus station which took us right into the centre of Amsterdam! The surroundings are also very tranquil and relaxing. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Amsterdam!

                                                      Peace and calm on the outskirts of Amsterdam

                                                      Situated on the outskirts of Amsterdam, Durgerdam is ideally situated to visit both the centre of Amsterdam and surrounding areas of North Holland. Local transport links to Amsterdam are convenient but to explore further afield a car (plus bike) give greater flexibility. The Achterhuis ('Backhouse') is a charming little cottage with everything you need for a comfortable holiday, perfect for the two of us to enjoy a peaceful and relaxing holiday. The property was as described and spotless, and Jaap was a perfect host on arrival. We would thoroughly recommend staying here and would like to return another time. Thank you Jaap & Kim - a splendid holiday location! Stuart & Rachel
